"Triumph TRP 650 cc" oil 6x8

Three generations of Wilsons have owned this 1969 Triumph police motorbike. My dad, me and my youngest son.
By being truncated (my late dad's favourite word) we believe the cognicenti are able to ID it 'cos of its configuration. Are you with us? Please leave YOUR comment below.

"Indian Motorcycle" Acrylic 6x8

At the annual Moss Street paint-In last week three bikers recognised the vintage bike in my painting and came over to say hi!
Success! I teased them about looking like accountants and we all had a good laugh.
Check out my general work on Fine Art America - go there and search for "Ron Wilson."
Cheers Guys! Ride safely.

QUESTION:  I have used my 'artistic license' and I've cut up the motorbike - does this spoil the image for you? Replies wanted, hit COMMENTS below.

"Moss Street" acrylic 11 x 14

Left alone, the forest floor develops all manner of supportive life - light filters down and around on a perfectly sunny day.
I was drawn by the colours in the range of lights filtered by the leafy ceiling. I chose acrylic paint because of it's utterly clean end-result, and I avoided actual "drawing" - instead I moved the brush from light shape to light shape, letting the spots of colour tell the story, the details kinda took care of themselves without being overstated.
