Sixteen canvases hold my hand-painted, resin-coated renderings of these bikes: a 1971 Harley Shovelhead FLH, a 1960 Harley FLH Duo-Glide Panhead, a 1976 Harley FLH Electra-Glide Shovelhead, a 1947 Harley EL Knucklehead, a 1973 Harley FLH Electra-Glide Shovelhead, a 1937 Harley UL Flathead, a 1981 Harley FXWG with factory custom flame paint, a 1937 Indian Scout barn find, a 1953 Harley Flathead chopper, a 1976 Liberty Edition Harley FXE Superglide Shovelhead, a 1975 Harley FLH Electra-Glide Shovelhead, a 1962 Harley FL Duo-Glide Panhead, a 1967 Harley FLH Electra-Glide Shovelhead, a 1971 Harley XLCH Ironhead Sportster, a 1937 Indian Scout Racer barn find, and a 1948 Harley FL Panhead.

Venue & Connection Information

I need a large amount of wall space (25 linear feet) and would like to have lighting, but I am willing to work with the venue. If I need to set up my own lighting, then I'll need electrical. And I will build a wall or a way to hang this collection of 20 paintings safely and securely in compliance with my venue's guidelines. Thank you.

  • Internet needed: No
