Again with the Bicycle

I am looking for something to make it pop in this final stage...

Building Bridges

I have some cool references for the GG Bridge so I am doing a mini series in the style of Wayne Thibaud.
I call the style "thibeaudacious" and am thinking of calling the series 'Bodacious Bridge". This could be too hoaky.

I'm painting bicycles in hopes of exhibiting them in September when the theme for Campbell's First Friday art walk will be "Cycle-mania", (or some such thing). Plus, I am in love with my bicycle. This painting is pleasant so far but not anything beyond that yet. Pleasant just may be its destiny, but I'd like to make it something more. We'll see.

This Painting Needs a Title

I am just a few strokes away from signing this piece. I need a title, something more charming than, Back view of Woman with Guitar Morphing out of Her Back with Cigar. I am pleased with the transition from flesh to wood on the left . I had a distinct edge on the guitar until an observer commented that he would make the transition softer. So I did and I like it very much. I've taken many suggestions for this piece and they have all been useful.
Anyhow, the fabric and the cushion in the background are on the final punch list. The requirements for the fabric are lose and expressive.
