We've all passed one of those shiny semi tankers and checked out the reflections as we blew by. I wanted to freeze that moment in time and really take a look at it. The elements within this painting are taken from experiences that happened during the 60th Sturgis rally. That's my new bagger in the back. Some friends having fun while they pass where they probably shouldn't. Look real close and find other Dangerous stuff maybe even the tornado that hit Sturgis during the 60th.
It's been 21 years now since I've painted "Dangerous". It's become a motorcycle cult classic. The Original painting sold in the 90's for $30,000.00 and is now on the market for $84,000.00. I was talking to Arlen Ness at the time about painting him and son Cory on Ness bikes in this painting. He was in Nor Cal and I in Cave Creek and we never put things together. Bummer. This was always one of Arlen's favorite pieces of my work. Godspeed Arlen!
The Original Painting is in a private collection in Los Angeles CA.
