I have had an affinity for motorcycles since childhood. Some of my earliest memories are on the back of my Dad's motorcycle. When people ask me what my favorites are, I laugh. I just love bikes...Each machine has it's own character, it's unique look and feel. It's not about the shine for me. In this piece, I wanted to move the viewer. Can you feel the twist of the throttle? Can you hear the motor? Does it bring back memories? Can you feel her? Cafe Racer is a 36”x 36” oil on canvas, painted on the sides and hung with wire. It is the first in a series.
