Billboard


I was driving down the freeway a couple weeks ago and looked up and saw one of my paintings up on a billboard. Sweet! I've never done anything for a billboard before. It's kinda cool. I did this painting for a friend who just recently opened Timanogos Harley, probably the coolest harley shop ever. It is huge and it is built from mostly salvaged materials from the old Geneva steel plant. Inside he also started a tasty restaurant called Marley's. This guy is Marley. If you are ever driving through Utah you oughta stop and check it out. Maybe have some lunch. It's easy to find. Just look for the billboard.

When they take the billboard down, do you get to keep it in your studio? :-)

That's a great painting! Marley looks like a cool dude.

Are you into motorcycles, Guy?

I hope what bubba j says is true, but I'd be willing to bet that since this was for a "friend", it was most likely a freebee. Right Guy? Please tell me I'm wrong.
