Oil on gessobord.
This was a challenging one, but my obsession with bike parts marches on!
This week, my son and I had parallel love-hate relationships with bikes. He had some great, huge smile days riding with no training wheels, as well as a couple epic meltdowns and a scraped knee. I had a couple “ah-ha!” moments while painting the gears, as well as a moment where I almost wiped the whole thing off because I can’t quite get my spokes straight (grr!). But we both soldiered on — he got back on his bike and I fixed my spokes as best I could. We’ll both try again tomorrow, and (hopefully!) get better with practice.
