Replacing Ruby

This Fearless Art Project celebrates the wonder of a life well lived.  The goal of the project is to inspire readers to cultivate the art of living fearlessly every day and to achieve a healthy work life balance.

This ongoing project documents my adventures and lessons learned as I Replace Ruby my Harley Softail that I rode for seventeen years.


RIDE #1: Dec. 2017 – Santa Toy Run, Phoenix, AZ
Harley Davidson, Custom Street Glide


My original plan was to blog and create a painting about every ride experience I took on different bikes.

However, I found that my experience “Replacing Ruby” has not been what I thought it would be.

“Replacing Ruby” has not been just been about replacing my motorcycle, it has been about rebuilding my life around what I feel passionate about universally as a LifeStyle Entrepreneur.

YES –  there will eventually be a social practice / visual journalism project outlining the lessons I have learned on this crazy journey I am on.

As is my style, these lessons will culminate with fifteen stories that inspire fifteen paintings and an art opening sharing the project with you.

However, I am wearing this very personal project more lightly and obviously more personally than my other Fearless Projects focusing on  “Giving Back” and “Doing Business”.

I am purposely letting this story unfold as it must.  I am not forcing it.

When the work is ready to be made I will know it….. until then just watch me enjoy the ride!

Share my journey with me on Facebook & Instagram @michellemicalizzi13!!
