Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
I recently rebuilt this old BSA bike for my mate George, his dad used to let him ride it as a child, he put blocks of wood on the pedals to make it more comfortable, it was the coolest bike on the street. This type of bike was used by paratroopers in Arnhem and the D Day landings, attached to a parachute by its wheels it folds neatly in half. It was great to get this 70 year old bike back on the road, I have painted every spoke and chain rivet and in the background are stylised parachutes, a paratrooper badge and BSA chain ring.
A unique and exclusive, lovingly crafted still life painting of a vintage military bicycle. I have painted it in beautiful lustrous colours to enhance the bold geometric patterns and fine detail. The sides of the canvas are not painted though it can be hung directly on the wall with or without a frame. It is signed front bottom right and on the back.
I am a keen cyclist, who lovingly restores bicycles and then records them for posterity by producing fine canvas's that are totally unique. All my paintings come with a Certificate of Authenticity and a written explanation and can be bought as a commemorative gift, or to celebrate an event. They can be displayed anywhere: Foyers, restaurants, galleries, shops, workshops, sports venues or in the living room.
