New Orleans Mollie, a little bike painting for my sis ©Kellie Day

New Orleans Mollie

There is really only one person who knows most everything about me –Mollie. My sister lives in New Orleans and has a long and complex history there. One of living in many neighborhoods, and once proud homes with marble fireplaces and 15 ft doorways. The house on St. Charles St, […]

Prune Puffs, 36" x 24" mixed media on canvas by Kellie Day ©2014 bike painting

Prune Puffs bike painting

Who names a painting “Prune Puffs”? That is so un-sexy. Somehow a vintage Prune Puff recipe ended up in this bike painting. I bought a bag of scrap paper at the Two Hands Paperie in Boulder while on a road trip, and these papers just circulate until they get slapped onto a painting. […]

G-party, 4ft x 4ft, ©Kellie Day

G-party

I’ve been taking a wonderful online class from Flora Bowley and experimenting with large canvases. “G-party” is the result of my fascination with bikes and hispanic folk art and culture, thus, the low-rider/chopper bike. Also, I was listening to Snoop Dog, “Gin and Juice” when I started painting the bike, […]

Perky T’s

This image came from a photo I took in Telluride. Out on the town with several friends, celebrating art and my friend Shauna’s photography exhibit, I snuck up on someone’s porch and photographed this bike. (Thank you, whoever you are!) Tequila label courtesy of my neighbor – good to the […]

RIDE, mixed media on canvas, 30" x 30", ©2012

RIDE

It’s spring in the Colorado Rockies, playtime in playland. Is it time for shorts, or snow boots? The mountains keep us guessing. Some days I wake up to snow-covered bulbs poking their heads out of frozen dirt, thawing as the day goes on. Spring in the mountains is nature’s tease, […]

Letting Go, mixed media on canvas, 40″ x 30″, ©2012, SOLD

Letting Go

This piece is inspired by a recent art opening evening, in which I stole the bass player from the band and procured a ride on the handle bars of his bicycle … Up a steep hill he peddled, breathing hard in the dark – me, laughing hysterically. Until we hit […]
