Carlsbad

30” X 40” oil on canvas


This was an exciting piece to do. I was given a period picture, taken at Irwindale in 1970 at night and given the task of presenting the same rider and bike at Carlsbad in full sun. The research was a blast, right down to the correct gloves. The bike and helmet were custom jobs by Paint by Molly, a local who did work for regular folks as well as the major manufacturers. Yes, there is a rat on the top of the helmet, a fun little touch of individuality.
