Daytona Bike Week. David Uhl Releases A New Commemorative Painting.

David Uhl is present at Bike Week, his booth setup at Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona and showing “Rebel Yell”, his 6th commemorative painting of the Florida event. “I wanted to speak to the ’40s again and illustrate the spirit of the rally from the perspective of being young at heart and throwing caution to the wind . Back in the late 1940s, the average motorcycle enthusiast was a veteran returned from the war who was consistently drawn to the rallies for the flat out excitement and balls to the wall insanity of racing down a beach.  Of course, everyone on the area would be affected by the sounds and the energy, especially young boys screaming their own echoes of the climate of exhiliration.”

As with these previous releases, “Rebel Yell” will only be available through the end of the rally (March 7th).  Each canvas giclee print comes hand-signed and numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity and those collecting the entire Daytona series will be given first right of refusal on their matching edition number.  All other print edition numbers will be assigned as orders are received. David’s full gallery, including the recent Woman of Harley “Stella” and “Rebel Yell”, will be available for viewing at Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach from February 26 through March 7. To reserve your print, call Greg Rhodes at 303-913-4840. Uhl Studios.

    There is so much energy in this piece. I can almost hear the giggles, and the splash!
    Nicely done, again, David!

    Thanks Pepper, I am happy you like it.
    Just packed the gallery up, sure is quiet out there now.

    I have to say, this piece was really a joy to work on, my mother thinks its the best piece I have done in years. In fact so does the rest of my family and friends ( I have tons of artists in my family and friends column). After spending the last 10 days here at Destination Daytona showing the masses of rally goers
    the piece, the response was underwhelming to say the least.

    This data really impresses upon me the value of subject matter for this genre of art collector. I am not however discouraged by the response in this case. I know as a serious painter that I must always challenge my horizons and that when I fall into composing for financial gain as a consistent motive then I am finished.

    Time to launch the “Greatist Hits” album.

    I predict when this is all said and done and I am a memory that this highly unpopular edition will be the most sought after, and of course scarce.

    Sorry to have missed seeing it live, made it every where but DD this year. Mom does know best and your inspiration did really come through on this one – bravo!
