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
