Reflections of America Collection: Volume 6 – Heartland

December 23rd, 2010 by Stu

Acrylic on Canvas 32″ x 24″

Our Xmas gift to you…this bad ass painting from our good pal Bob Petillo. The beautiful custom Hog really caught Bob’s eye and camera shutter one afternoon and you are looking at the result as a painting.The chrome glistens in the sun like ornaments on a Christmas tree, each reflection glimmering a little differently from the other. In case you have not been keeping up with ourReflections of America series, Bob is one part photorealist and one part gear head. The combination yields you stuff so good it’s hard to fathom how a human hand can mimick reality so closely with a paintbrush.

“In 3 hours, I photographed this bike over 150 times, I was at Old Town in Orlando racing the sun and hoping the owner of the bike wasn’t going anywhere.  Old town, Orlando, Fl captures the flavors styles and architecture of “Anytown, USA”  This bike and car show in 2004 gave me everything needed to create this painting,  What better title than “Heartland” for you to enjoy this holiday season.”

Happy Holidays from Man on the Move
