Kathlyn's Bike, Elizabeth Davis
about this piece.
Beth describes this piece, "This is a little bike I found in an art store; it was a pale, almost dirty looking pink, like it had been in the store for 20 years collecting dust, but I loved it and wanted to paint it and have it out at her birthday memorial. I used my acrylic paint to make it look like the pink/white/red swirly colored rubber-band bracelets with her name on them that I'm going to put inside the wagon to give out as a party favor. The inside was made to look like wood. I also painted the dragonfly and the birthday cake. The pink puppy is a patch I found at the store too; pink puppies are what we use to remember our daughter, inspired by the pink puppy her daddy picked out while I was pregnant."
