It started in October on a beautiful Indian Summer’s day. In Oregon, those kind of days are rare – especially for autumn. So, I called my buddies at Indian Motorcycle of Portland and asked them if they had a bike I could borrow for the afternoon. They were kind enough to offer me anything on the floor, and a hot red Indian Chief caught my eye. I had been wanting to take one of those out for a spin for quite a while, and the day and the opportunity where perfect. After loading camera and equipment in the saddlebags, the Chief and I made our way to a cool Portland park with a pristine lake. So after shooting a couple good rolls of film, I had reference material for Indian Summer – the fifth painting from my motorcycle series.
INDIAN SUMMER is my most recognized painting from my motorcycle series, having appeared on the cover of Airbrush Action magazine, April 2001, for my article “A Study in Chrome and Reflected Surfaces”, which can be read on this site (click here).
