In 2005, David Uhl became the first artist to commemorate the Sturgis Rally each year with a special painting. This year, David had five different images in mind and, based on the feedback offered by his collectors, selected “The Ironhorse Heist”. This masterpiece features Kevin Bean’re (more on him later) and, for the first time ever, this commemorative painting will be offered in both horizontal and vertical formats.
In David’s words, “I saw The Bean’re before I actually was introduced to him, and I remember thinking “WOW what a GREAT face for a painting someday! Bean’re told me last year that he was writing a book about his extensive travels and experiences around the world. I started dreaming up a concept that might reflect some of the novel situations that only the Bean could find himself in. I definitely wanted to portray this gypsy nomad from another time with some high drama and action. His signature top hat with the gaping Rattler head slung my timeline back a hundred years, and then it hit me. The old West, with the long tail coat gambler attire was perfect. An epic train robbery fit the bill, being chased by a posse with guns a blazin’. I then figured this would be a fine addition to my Sturgis collection as well as the whimsical book cover I was looking for” (“Bean’re. Motorcycle Nomad” book featuring David Uhl’s cover art will also be released in time for the rally this year)
