Motorcycle Mama

Daytona Beach is famous for its races, but also for Bike Week, the last week in February, when 1000's of motorcyclists from all over the country (the world?) arrive en mass for the "gathering of the tribe". Each year I swear I have to document this invasion somehow, as my little hometown south of Daytona becomes a destination for the bikers and the "wall of sound" invasion is constant. One day this past Bike Week I took my Canon Rebel Xs and stood on the corner of US-1 at a traffic light, and shot for about a 1/2 hour. I got some great characters and was so happy with the shots I decided a new painting series was born. This 14x14" canvas I call motorcycle mama. She's based on a real person, but of course I had to add my own artistic flair.
