"The best part about riding in Florida is experiencing the wild life in more
ways than one. Flying through glorious natural wonders, I feel the
sun shining on me, hear the birds, sometimes the bike's sound and movement make
them burst into flight. The impact by a bee who hangs from my face is not so
pleasant, but when the wind calls.... you ride! "

I feel this piece epitomizes my beliefs while depicting Florida full of life and energy. I am filled with gratitude in all things, oddly even the UGH of the storage device.

ASK BELIEVE RECEIVE GRATITUDE
Yeah baby!!! High five blog style! I posted my goals before noon and had a warm response with great ideas and support all day. At 5 pm. I got a Museum exhibition acceptance notice! My work will be in the exhibition at the Museum of Florida Art titled "Chrome and Leather."
You might be thinking hey what did this landscape artist create for a show with that title? I pondered it for months, up at night making projects in my head, and devising mechanical chrome and leather connections for my imagined work. There was a time when a Harley Wide Glide affectionately named Wilma G was the bike taking me to and fro till she met with a car. I flew over the car way over on to the other side of the road and was left with a crack in my pelvis. The exhibit tag line is "Art on the Road of Good and Evil" and my focus is on the GOOD. My favorite aspects on a motorcycle is the nature that surrounds me on the ride. I did not need to concoct a new style or work as I imagined but sincerely show the joys of riding in the wind.
