Painting #9 - Big Wheel
7" x 5"
Oil on Canvas Board

We rode them on driveways. We rode them on sidewalks. We rode them down embankments and off homemade ramps. We would put pebbles in the holes that would eventually be worn in the back tires to make us sound more menacing. We were the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and the only people we knew who wore helmets were Evel Knievel and the professional football players we all wanted to be when we grew up. We were young. We were fierce. And the world was ours.
