Adolescence

 

Like many adolescent boys, I was fascinated by motorcycles. It was an exciting time for motorcycles, as both the urban chopper and the rural dirt bike were undergoing rapid dynamic changes. I think I must have been twelve or thirteen when I painted this. Acrylic. My enthusiasm was dampened in eight grade when I had a minor bike accident in Baja California in which the nut of the rear wheel of a Yamaha 150 ground its ways into my ankle for what I'm sure was actually just a few moments. It got infected, mainly from hobbling back to a distant cantina outside Estero Beach in septic, gooey mud. Anyway, I quit bikes. Perfectly happy to do so. Don't give me any of that, "Get back on the horse" stuff. I was thrown downhill onto gravel and cantaloupe-sized rocks by a 13-14 hand quarter-horse, biggest horse I've ever ridden in my life. I got right back on. Motorcycles?...just not motivated.
