THINKING OF ART

Some people have noticed my enhanced logo image on this website. Originally it contained my dragon motor scooter by itself — lovely to my way of thinking, That is, until the lady showed up in a painting by Georges Massias, commissioned around 1897 by the Gladiator bicycle company.

She is holding onto a Gladiator bicycle for a flight through the heavens. Why should she not hold onto my Dragon Vespa and take IT for a flight through the heavens? The pose, identical. Her flaming hair and soft radiant flesh harmonize beautifully with the scooter’s green and gold metal body.

Done deal. A new dimension has been added.

Unfortunately I can’t find out anything about the artist Georges Massias. He apparently is as obscure as Adrian Ruyle.
