A Happy Ending

Following up to yesterday’s post about my misadventures with my bike, I’d like to fill you in on the happy ending of that story.

So Friday I walked back to Pecco’s in Gatineau, armed with the receipt-less wheel, tire, and inner tube, praying the entire way that the nice folks there will remember me. I may or may not have dressed up a little nicer than normal for the occasion. Hey, don’t judge. I was desperate to return this thing!

Well so much for my efforts, it started raining as I was in the middle of the Alexandra Bridge, which in case you don’t know, is a freakin long bridge and there’s nowhere to seek cover. Obviously I didn’t have an umbrella. I couldn’t stop thinking of the giant one I had just painted the previous day (it’s like it was some kind of sick joke). Oh well, goodbye nice hair.

Eventually I made it to Pecco’s, slightly resembling a wet dog. Turns out they were into that look. They gladly returned all my stuff with no hassle what-so-ever. Score.

The following day, Alex took me (with his car) to a couple places to find a new bike and lo-and-behold, I found this beauty at Walmart for only $200.

Allelujah!
Allelujah!

So now back to relating this to painting…

The splothy blue background that I used for the umbrella painting was intended to be 1/3 paintings in a set. The other backgrounds I had done were these two:

Step 1: Paint a Background
Step 1: Paint a Background (and learn to take better photographs…)

 Step 2: Slap on some plants using a palette knife and call it a day!

And that about wraps up the bike chronicles. Hopefully forever. Have a happy Tuesday friends 🙂
