I saw quite a few of these Vespa's in different colors
while driving through San Francisco. This one caught
my eye because of the luscious pink color. In painting
this, I kept my mind focused on shapes instead of
thinking about the objects that I was actually painting.
Like pieces of a puzzle, each shape begins to fall into
place until a recognizable image is formed. Painting this
way frees my mind from the thought that some objects
are difficult to render. A rhythm is developed as one
shape is layed down in relationship to the next.
