a birthday painting

Matt really loves biking. Perhaps more than he loves me. I am only half joking. To honor him on his 33rd birthday I decided to paint him a silhouette of his beloved bike. I was inspired by the gorgeous shadow the sun made peaking through the shape of his bike one afternoon. I quickly grabbed my largest piece of masonite, a black sharpie, moved that board around on the sidewalk to get it just right and then I furiously traced, waited for the clouds to move and traced some more. What other silhouettes can I make? I am a bit excited about the prospects of more shadows. If only classes and teaching weren't just a week away.

Happy Birthday Matty. I love you. You do drive me nuts sometimes. But, I really love you.
