David Uhl was painting “The Liberator” while in Daytona for Bike Week. This new masterpiece is David Uhl’s 5th addition to his “Vintage Pin Up” series, and for your greatest pleasure I added a close up.
Here what David has to say: “”This particular piece in the series of ‘Pin Up Cheese Cake’ has to do with Harley-Davidson’s campaign involving the military. I liked their thinking on this one, saluting the troops and all. My version actually involves the odd WWII flathead called the “Liberator”. It wasn’t the most attractive bike, having every surface painted flat green, but it was historically accurate, down to the Thompson automatic machine gun. I wanted to do a classic Elvgrin pose straight from the 40’s involving some unsuspecting beauty getting her skirt caught on some prop…absolutely cheese-ball but nevertheless effective for our viewing enjoyment. I would like to thank Aubrey for the insanity we put her through to get her in that pose, Tobie Orr for the make up and costume, John Mueller for some great photographic work and Stukie D for the optimization of the composition”
As with the first 4 pieces, “The Liberator” is available in a very limited canvas print release. Collectors of the rest of the series have first right of refusal for their matching numbers. Because David is waiting to hear back from some of them, he is not sure how many will still be available. If you want to be on the waiting list, call Greg Rhodes 303-913-4840. Edition specifics: 25 prints plus 5 Artist Proofs and 10 House Copies. Image size 20″ x 24″. Framed price $1,250, plus shipping. Uhl Studios.
