Bike installation

Image: A picture of a white fence on which is mounted an artwork in an ornate oval gold frame. The artwork is of a girl holding a rabbit. She wears a long sleeved red dress with a white collar and her long, wavy black hair is blowing in the wind to her left. The background is pink with pink roses floating around her. She is wearing a smeared smoky eye makeup and her tiny lips are tinted red. Below the artwork is a rusty, vintage bike with a light green wooden basket mounted on the back. You can only see the bike’s handlebar, saddle and rear fender. The basket is full of fresh red flowers and green leaves.
Image:  The whole picture of the installation is shown. The oval ornate gold frame with the artwork image of girl and the bike bolted to the fence. The fence is white with tall trees behind it and the bike sits on trimmed grass. The bike is old and rusty with large wheels.

Near the entrance to my new bit of land, I felt it was a bit bare. I decided to make this little installation to welcome me home. The bike symbolises care for the environment, sustainable transport, and pedaling along with the wind in your face for pleasure. The box of flowers represents growth and life. And the girl holding a her rabbit in an ornage gold frame represents all that is lush, opulent, and full of love and comfort. These are all things I want to absorb each time I come home. It works. It gives me a little burst of pleasure each time I come and go.

Note to self: next time tell the mowing guy that the bike is an art installation, bolted to the fence, and so you can’t just whip it out of the way to get to the grass, sorry. (That required a bit of repair. Eek.)
