Welcome to Craig Ripley Studios
Art, Travel and Adventure
For those of you have visited my site in the past, we have a whole new look and a slight change of direction. I will continue to display my artwork however I have ventured into creating a new blog centering on my motorcycle touring adventures.
Living Off the Slab
The idea for this site, Living Off the Slab started when a couple of buddies and I decided to head out from the Boston, MA area to the Victory Motorcycle Club's National meet in Prescott, AZ. After the meet we will head up to Idaho, Teton National Park, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, Sturgis and then back home to New England.

Cycling Art Prints
The bicycle is a simple machine, and possibly the most efficent every created. Each pedal stroke turns muscular power into kenetic energy pushing the machine are rider forward as one. It is this eligent synergy between man and machine that provides the insiration for my cycling art.
In 1987 I created four pastel paintings with a cycling theme. These paintings sat in my portfolio as life and making a living got in the way of my dream--to turn these paintings into prints/posters so that I could share them with other cyclists. Finally at the end of 2003 I decided to follow through, producing the first four lithographs in what I hope will be a long line of cycling art prints/posters.
At the present time my cycling art prints are not for sale. At some point in the future I plan on bringing them back to market. You may view my prints at www.craigripley.com/craig-ripley-artwork.html.
