Husquvarna, named after a city in Sweden, was founded in 1689 to produce Muskets. They built their first bike in 1903. This early "Husky" logo on a Motorcycle was always one of my favorites as it has a gun sight within the design elements. The company has been parted out since it's early inception and manufactures a variety of equipment from sewing machines to forestry & lawn care machines, as well as Motorcycles.
The logo has all been done in a variety of leafs, Gold, Bronze, & Silver, applied to the canvas. The painted areas were done conventionally with a brush & acrylic paint. When I "cleared" over the finished painting all of the Leafs lost the shine & sparkle they normally have. The result is a sort of Patina or aged gold & bronze surface. I like this look better as it adds to the age of this historic work. A simple, yet elegant piece that fits in any home or office with elegance, and defines you as an astute Motorcyclist!
The Original Painting is in my Collection and available For Sale.
