Cyclists and bicycles have been a source of fascination for April M Rimpo and become one of the largest of her series. The geometry of a bicycle combined with the organic shapes of the rider are part of the attraction. April says, "Combine these fascinating shapes with the energy and beauty of riders whether in a race or just out for a ride, I'm compelled to paint their stories." The backgounds in these paintings are generally blurred to represent the world they are flying past with the wind in their hair. The riders feel like they are one with their bikes and that they could explore the world all day.
Most of the paintings in this series are done in fluid acrylic but there are a few watercolors included as well. In either media Rimpo's watermedia paintings are on watercolor paper, generally presenting her cycling pieces as gallery wrapped paintings with the image continuing around the sides. She feels that putting a frame on the cyclists would limit their freedom.
