A Place for Rest

A Place for Rest

Piece description from the artist

This painting is a scene depicting Asian lanterns and classic bikes with flower baskets. I call it "A Place for Rest", because it reminds me of the most serene and peaceful place to rest these beautiful bikes. There is an underlying spiritual message of taking a journey through life, and once we reach the milestone of death we park our bikes near a lovely place and walk with deity. Death should not be feared but embraced. I imagine parting from this life to be a gateway that leads to another lovely journey. The bikes represent movement, and as we ride them through life we can experience lovely things. The uphill climb, the free ride down hill, and the peaceful flat ride, with rocks, or smooth pavement all provide joy during the journey. The more we enjoy the ride the greater, and more plentiful our rest will be. Ride on my friends.
