The painted work at the top of the page was done in 1997 by my mother-in-law, and Venice, California artist, Adrianne Prober. Aware that my wife and myself were passionate bicyclists, Adrianne began playing with painting bicyclists on a long piece of illustration paper. This was in preparation for making a baby shower announcement held for us upon the birth of our son. Later, we acquired this "practice piece" which I like more and more with each passing year. It is a brilliant mix of chaotic organization, what I imagine a morning on the streets of Amsterdam might look like. The painting, measuring approximately 6" high x 24" long is now framed and hangs prominently in our home.
