Art Description

Painting: Acrylic and Oil on Canvas.

This was inspired by a tiny photo ( 2.5inches square) of my Dad and sister. It was taken by my mother, in a glorious summer and my sister had been pestering to sit on the bike.
I painted this, recalling riding on the pillion myself, in those halycon days and the roar of the bike and the power; you could hear my Dad coming home, the powerful sound of a on the bike heralding his return like a friendly dragon.
