I found an image online I liked and painted it.  I usually stick to realism and this was slightly abstract, with parts missing and messy lines, so it was a little difficult to paint outside the lines.  I'm thinking I might write personal stories about my bike experiences in yellow, really small, so from a distance it just looks like the background color but up close you can read it. The canvas is 18"x24".  If I find the original I'll link it be no luck yet.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I really love it! And I like the idea of writing as the background, but I'm a big fan of text in art, so that's no surprise.
