An original, running, 1911 Reading Standard in all of it's rusted glory! 106 years old and still running. How cool is that! I just had to create a painting of this Highly Collectible American Motorcycle.
Between the patina gas tank, rusty motor and worn leather belt drive, I got a schooling on painting textures. It's nice to paint not shiny and no chrome for a change.
The Original Painting is in a private collection in Denver CO.
