It's clear that Art may be both Representational and Contemporary. Barbara Sullivan's
Motorcyle  Art  Collection makes this point quite well. These paintings  reveal the Biker world;
his dreams and  love for America and his motorcycle.    Join  Barbara  Sullivan, Artist
in a celebration of the Harley Davidson motorcycle and America

TERMINATOR

Original Oil painting on Canvas AVAILABLE 30"h x
 40"w -  Ships from Artist

Contact Artist at shop@barbarasullivan.com to inquire

This is a painting of my frrend as he leaves my studio one cold January
morning.  As my favorite Biker model and a seasoned rider of 30 years
he has  provided some great Biker  reference material for my  paintings
as  well as  mused  me about  the insight into  what Bikers  like.  Bikers
represent freedom, which  is  America,  and this is why I painted in the
American  flag.   The  original  painting  is  painted  on  a  gallery  type
canvas  with  the  wrap  around  sides painted and does not neccessarily
need  to  be  framed.  The Harley Davidson motorcycle that he is riding
is also a work of art.

SPIRIT OF THE SONORA
 
Original Oil painting on Canvas SOLD to Private Collector, Las Vegas Nevada

This is another painting in the Biker Series.  This is a painting of my  friend Michael.
I  found him to  be the strongest yet gentlest man  I know. His life and love is  in  the
Sonora  desert  in Arizona. He  has a deep  understanding of  natural  habitat, animals,
wildlife   and  "the motorcycle".  I have yet to see more work and detail in other bikes
 that  he puts into each of  his HarleyDavidson  motoercycle.  They are works of art.  It  
  is a joy and a challenge to paint them

KNIGHTS OF THE ROAD
 
Original Oil painting on Canvas AVAILABLE 40"h x 60"w -  Ships from Artist
Contact Artist at shop@barbarasullivan.com to inquire


My biker friend Michael and I sat two different days out on this lonely Nevada road taking
reference  photos  of the trucks coming  up  from the gypsum plant. We always enjoy these
photo  shoots  and  this  time  we  brought  along a picnic lunch.  Later in my studio, I used
different  truck   reference  photos,  painted  the  final  truck red and painted Michael on his
motorcycle  riding  alongside the  truck.   I enjoyed  painting the almost never ending desert
creating  my own road  to  draw  your eye  in and around  the  painting.  I chose to make the
sky stormy so I could turn on  the  trucks  headlights and add a little thunder and  lightening

  to see the progression as I painted this painting.   The original
oil  painting is stretched on gallery style canvas and may be hung framed or unframed.  The
wrap  around  sides  are  painted  in  grey  acrylic
.

INKED 

                  Original Oil painting on Canvas SOLD to Private Collector, Calabassas California
 

This is the first painting in the Biker Art Series with 23 more ideas just as starters.
Here I visualized someone working late. The challenge in this painting is for your
 eyes to initially  focus  on  the  motorcycle  first and  then let your eyes drift to the
 rest of  the  painting.    To  accomplish this,  I painted  and  glazed  the  backround
several times to make the visual impact secondary to the motorcycle.

FINE ART

 Original Oil painting on Canvas AVAILABLE 36"h x 24"w - Ships from Artist
Contact Artist at shop@barbarasullivan.com to inquire

  This painting is  about  the  creative  expertise  a  biker  puts  into his  motorcycle,
which then  becomes his signature.   I  felt  it  appropriate to  paint  this  beautiful
modified  Harley  Davidson  motorcycle,  one of  two that I  took  my  first  rides
on, as  it  demonstrates  the   biker's  creative  result.   I  inserted  the  bike  to look
like  it  was  parked  in  front  of one  of the art  galleries  that represents  my work
in Northern  California.  The original painting is painted on a gallery  style canvas
with  the  wrap  around sides painted and does not  necessarily need to  be  framed.

Last  spring  I  came home from shopping and found  Michael,  my motorcycle friend
and   muse,  on one of  his  modified  Harley Davidson  motorcycles  asleep under my
mesquite tree. I silently went into my studio,  grabbed my camera  and came out  and
took  a  few  photos. This is a good example  of how  an  artist takes advantage of the
moment!! I had  a choice  to paint the scene in a daylight setting or at night. I decided
on a night  scene. This way I would be able to paint an orange fire against the blue of
the  night.   I  painted  in another  biker  behind  him and called the painting Brothers.
The original painting is framed in a 3" dark mahogany ornate wood frame.
