Painting Charlottesville

I just stumbled upon the blog of a talented local artist, John Trippel, who has painted many cityscapes of downtown Charlottesville and the Belmont neighborhood. He's also featured biking and transit in a few of his works. An artist who can capture the life and color a city is a wonderful thing for any community to have.

In a recent blog entry, he tells of his adventures combining a bicycle and bus commute into one. That's something I have yet to try here. It's encouraging to read his account of how the city public transportation system has changed for the better in the last several decades.
