2012 Sturgis Rally Official Painting By Artist Scott Jacobs.

A sneak peak at the annual official Sturgis painting for 2012. For this edition named “The Panhandler” Scott Jacobs envisioned a motorcycle enthusiast so hell bent on making Sturgis that he would do practically anything including panhandling to get there.

However the absolutely beautiful Harley-Davidson Panhead bike in the background makes it a little difficult to feel sorry for the guy! This painting will be on the cover of the 2012 Official Guide.

This year, Scott decided to do something a little bit different. A marked down price at 10% below market with another 10% donated to the G.I. Go Fund (as seen on the season premiere of Secret Millionaire, which will air again tonight Saturday, June 9th on ABC.)

Available in 2 sizes. Reg: 26 x 18, Large: 40 x 28. $535 Special Unframed Price with additional $60 going to G. I. Go Fund. $1,395 Special Unframed Price with additional $155 going to G. I. Go Fund. Sales: call (303) 431-4453. Scott Jacobs Studio.

    I see the contradiction between panhandling and a very expensive immaculate pahnead. Huh…

    That is Rookie from Chubbs Bros; Scott – are you paying him royalties for using his image?

    As always, Scott comes up with the coolest ideas, and executes them flawlessly. What a fantastic painting from an amazing artist, who’s also a great human being! Thanks for bringing such beauty into our lives!

    He can’t paint tattoos. His right arm is a chicken foot.

    High quality painting. Very realistic. The Pan should look less pristine if he rode his bike to the point of being broke without money to finish the trip to Sturgis.

    What’s with the hair thing?
    I dunno….. he looks like….. new. Yip, too new and too clean.

    I think some of you are missing the humor here; this painting is a whimsical spoof and play on words: “PANhandler”. Instead of scrutinizing the painting I think Scott’s objective was to just have fun with the concept. I think its great!

    We are having fun! 🙂
    It’s art and we are it’s objective viewers with subjective views.

    In early Florence, those guys that painted alla’ time, would re-use a canvas, utilizing the first hardened brush strokes as texture.

    The first thing my eye goes to, in wonderment, is …. bag the hair. “Hair” is hard to draw. Ask Hamster’s Jim Waggeman. 🙂 Sometimes it’s real and your eye doesn’t get hung up on it, and sometimes an artist has a bad hair day.

    We’re all still friends.
