American Hells Angel Bad Boy aka: Rat Fink

I painted this a few years ago. It was one of several watercolors that I contributed to a biker fund raising art show to raise money to help individuals recover from serious accidents. I suggested that they simply get rid of their dangerous motor cycles and purchase Volvos. They all ignored my good advice! I post this as a reminder of my Self Portrait Global Love In challenge #2: A self portrait with head ware...hats, helmets, scarves, etc. Let your imagination run free! Any art medium including digital. The due date to send me an image is September 12. Send it to me at: sushi3@mac.com.

Hi David,

This is great and scary. Your advice was excellent. Maybe they needed to go for a racier car, but yes a car and
seat belts would help.

Take care,

Barbara

Barbara, This guy is certainly "colorful" and studly as well as a jackass.

Hoooweee- what you achieve with just a few well placed strokes!
I love the raw, gestural simplicity of this portrait.

( Let's hope Bad Boy doesn't have a secret blog life and start to simmer a slow burn over being called a jackass.....)

Good for you for trying though!

I have a baseball bat at the ready, Comrade Bonnie.

David Lobenberg said...

Thank you Onpainting. When this "family man" comes after me, can I use you as extra muscle power? You can give him and Indian Rub on his wrists while I make my exit.

Good idea, Milind. Thanks.
