Hi David,

Just some guy named Lance. Hmmm. My husband has every one of that biker's books. In my books it was some bike rider signing some painter's art. Both as terrific at what they do.

You deserve all the attention you get. You're a great painter.

Take care,

Barbara

Wow!!! That is awesome...is that still part of the bicycle paint off with Milind??? I thought my eyes were seeing double, triple..what great movement. What an undertaking this must have been.

Cool - he should sign it twice for all the work you put into it.

That is just so fantastic!
And I just read that Lance went home and told everyone that he owns a Lobenberg!!!

Really, a thrill. And much deserved.

Hey, Barbara, I can ride a bike too, but not quite as fast and I need to be on absolutely flat land...and... I ride down hill the best.

David Lobenberg said...

Hi Amber! How's college treating you? I'm extremely famous in my own mind...the fantasies I have!

David Lobenberg said...

No, Kathy...this was a commissioned piece for the event, but the painting that was done for the "paint off" with my friend Milind just got sold recently to someone in my neighborhood who saw it on this blog!

David Lobenberg said...

Do you like the blond look I now have, Rob?

David Lobenberg said...

Comrade Bonnie, Yeah, right!!

David Lobenberg said...

Onpainting; You are wrong, Bill...I whipped together that painting in minutes!...or should I say hours and hours and hours? Yeah, that's a wee bit more accurate.

David Lobenberg said...

David--

Nice post and very nice painting. I enjoy your work at lot. I know of you but have never met you. I will one of these days. I am a friend of Fred Ekman and he speaks highly of you.

David Lobenberg said...

Howdy, Terry. Fred is a great guy! I'm so sorry to hear about his health issue. I went to your blog and love your h2o sketches. I'm going to add you to my blog roll. Hopefully we can meet up soon.
