Bike art more specifically. Whether it's bike photography, a wine bottle holder in the shape of a bike, or oil on canvas, I love it all! My parents were in New Orleans this past summer and bought me a painted piece of art. I finally got it framed and mounted and it looks awesome!

Notice the raised appearance of the painted bicyclist

What's cool about this piece is that it isn't simply oil on canvas. The artist said that they had to paint each section with hundreds of strokes in order to build it up and give it a 3d looking effect. And if you have ever painted with oil, you know that you have to let it dry before applying the next stroke. This is pretty cool. Thanks mom and dad!

The leather in appearance frame was the icing on the cake!
