Always a fan of David’s, I am digging on the latest series.  It is a bit of a departure, but I am drawn to it because it is not too different from how I see photographically.  Sounds like there will be up to 12 images in the set, and I am guessing there will be at least one of each Harley engine model, perhaps even including the small scramblers.

 

Loving the detail work Mr. Uhl!

 

Love, Respect, and Fine Art,

 

 

Press Release:

We are excited about David’s newest project, something very different for him artistically.  He completed this piece recently for inclusion in the upcoming festivities at the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC.  David’s friend and owner of the museum, Dale Walksler, built this beautiful 1936 Knucklehead and will be raffling off the bike on November 12th to raise money for the museum.  The bike winner will also receive a canvas print of David’s new image, titled “Autumn Knuckle” (image below).

As David states “I thought the bike was absolutely beautiful and wanted to give it it’s due.  Every once in a while, I have to do something ultra-realistic to keep myself grounded.  While the digital image looks very much like a photograph, the original painting (oil on canvas) and the prints have a life far beyond any photo and are quite rich.”  

In conjunction with the raffle, David is making a limited number of the canvas giclee prints available to his collectors.  Each of these hand signed, numbered prints will come professionally framed with a Certificate of Authenticity.

This piece is the first in a new series for David, titled “Heads of Harley”.  Over time, there may be as many as 12 different images in this series.  As with his other collections, he will offer first right of refusal on matching edition numbers to those who collect the entire series.  Preferred numbers on this first image will be assigned as orders are taken.

David is also offering a 10% discount on orders received prior to the bike raffle this Saturday, November 12th!    This discount applies to the opening prices below.

 

Print specifics:

Image size 18” x 24”, edition of 61 plus 10 Artist Proofs and 5 Hors d’ Commerce, $1,250 framed

Image size 30” x 40”, edition of 24 plus 5 Artist Proofs, $2,250 frame

David Uhl has a new piece out for Daytona’s Anniversary Rally… Check it out and check him out in person in Daytona… Hey, check me out there too!  I will be roaming the streets, so come and find me.

Love, Respect, and Fine Art,

We are excited to announce the release of David Uhl’s latest masterpiece, “Ready to Rally”.  This piece is the 7th in the Daytona Commemorative Series and features a beautiful lady biker, readying her ride for the next leg in front of Daytona Harley-Davidson on Beach Street (image below).

In David’s words, “This being the anniversary year for the rally, I wanted to paint a subject that was very rally specific.  Looking over the last six years of my Daytona Commemorative pieces, I realized that there was not a “Bike Week ” depiction in the whole group. So I thought it appropriate this year to create  a work  that represented a sight  that would most certainly grab your attention while you were cruisin’ the streets.  This is my favorite model Elizabeth and she will be with us at Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach on the 11th and 12th to meet and greet all those who care to stop by and say hello”.

As with his previous Daytona pieces, David will make these prints available through the end of this year’s rally (March 13th).  Edition numbers will be assigned as orders are taken and shipping is included in the prices below within the lower 48 United States.

Hand-signed, numbered canvas giclee prints:

“Regular” – image size 20″ x 30″, $895 framed

“Large” – image size 28″ x 42″, $2,850 framed


To reserve your print, simply respond to this email or call me at the number listed below.  David will be in his gallery at Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach (outside the front door of the dealership) from March 4-13.


Best regards,


Greg

“Ready to Rally”
Daytona Commemorative 2011

With the excitement surrounding the 70th anniversary, David is capping the number of available prints this year.  He’s also including a special paper version (also signed and numbered) which will be only be available unframed.

In 1936, Clarence “Pappy” Hoel started an Indian dealership in Sturgis and formed the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club.  Two years later, the City of Sturgis joined forces with the Jackpine Gypsies to hold the first “rally” (known as the Black Hills Classic) which was highlighted by the championship half-mile race.  David’s subject in “70 & Counting”, a member of a motorcycle club at the time, is on her way to the inaugural festivities when she stops near Devil’s Tower to get her bearings.  We can only imagine that her new cowboy friend wishes she would stay longer!

We are taking orders now and will begin production as orders are received.  If you are collecting the entire Sturgis commemorative  series, you will continue to receive first right of refusal on your matching edition number.  Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.  Edition specifics (shipping is included within the contiguous U.S.):

“Regular Canvas”, image size 28″ x 21″, edition of 70 plus 7 APs and 7 HCs,  $895 framed

“Oversize Canvas”, image size 40″ x 30″, edition of 12 plus 2 APs, $2,250 framed

“Deluxe Paper”, image size 18″ x 13.5″, edition of 70, $195 unframed (only available unframed)

Best regards,
Greg

You know by now that I am a big fan of David Uhl’s work.  I am lucky enough to have picked up a couple prints over the years and they are a prize in my collection.  Well, David has just announced the completion of his latest painting… check out the note below.

Love, Respect, and Biker Art,

ArtBiker

We are excited to announce the official release of “Stella” by David Uhl.  As you probably know, she is the seventh in the Women of Harley series and David adds a new piece to this collection every 2 years.  The painting was completed last week at  Barrett-Jackson and was the hit of the show — the detail on each pearl on her necklace and the vivid colors of her shoes really jump off the canvas!

The edition size and prices will be the same as with “Evelyn”, all hand-signed and numbered canvas giclee prints:

“Large” – image size appx 32×24, 150 prints plus 25 Artist Proofs and 25 House Copies.  Price is $1,895 framed

“Oversize” – image size appx 40×30, 20 prints plus 5 Artist Proofs.  Price is $3,850 framed

“Jumbo” – image size appx 48×36, 10 prints plus 2 Artist Proofs.  Price is $4,850 framed

You can view the image below, along with a detailed cropping of Stella herself.  Please let me know if you want to add “Stella” to your collection.  As always, please let me know if you received this email by mistake and we’ll omit you from our distribution list.

In David’s words, “It has been 2 years since the introduction of Evelyn, the last piece in my
“Women of Harley Series”. The Evelyn painting was a portrait of a seasoned
rider on her way to a hill climb in the early thirties. She was composed of
big bold strokes with expressive paint and colors.
I got to thinking of how women
first climbed astride the iron horse in the first place and did a
little research. It appears that the decade before was the culprit for
paradigm shift of attitudes: “The Roaring Twenties” .  Now I wanted to
do an accurate rendering with all the details of this slice of
American history.

I decided to produce a piece that went full circle back to the
“Ruby” era, except focus on the motorcycle as the catalyst of change.
Stella sits outside the Oxford Hotel on a shiny new Harley Davidson in
full ’20s regalia, igniting the onslaught of the previous Victorian
generation’s display of contempt.  These young women of the ’20s could
not have been more shocking to their parents — they flew airplanes,
rode motorcycles and stayed out dancing until the morning hours, not to
mention the attire.  Harley-Davidson’s rich heritage includes these
type of scenes, and I hope you enjoy my window into that past.”

Fine Art Fridays: Teaser From Uhl

It’s been two years since “Evelyn” found her way into your hearts and we are almost ready to release David Uhl’s newest addition to his Women of Harley collection, “Stella”.

Unlike “Evelyn”, “Stella” is not a seasoned rider but more of a rebel immersed in the changing attitudes from the Victorian Era to the Roaring ’20’s.  Harley-Davidson was a catalyst in that change and just seeing a woman on a motorcycle was a pretty radical concept at the time.

The painting is about 70% complete and we’ll be taking it to the Barrett-Jackson show in Scottsdale, Arizona which starts on Monday.  David will complete the painting there and we will begin taking print orders at that time.  We will send a full-image email release upon our return from Arizona (January 26th).  For those of you who want to add “Stella” to your collection, we will hold your matching numbers while in Arizona.

David wanted to tease everyone with the cropped image of “Stella” below.

If you’re coming to Barrett-Jackson, please stop by and see us.  We’ll be in the same location as in the past and you’ll get to see “Stella” in progress!

Thanks,

Greg
