I handed out some business cards at a local motorcycle show/ride and 2 gentlemen contacted me about paintings of their motorcycles.
I went round to take pictures of the first gentlemans bike and got a 50% downpayment. While I was talking to him the other gentleman called and so I went there to take pictures, he wanted TWO bikes painting and gave me 50% downpayment. Then I had paintings with me to show them what I do. This gentleman owns the yellow Indian I painted earlier and is seriously considering buying that painting also!
My online store where I have prints for sale https://www.etsy.com BrianDart had a message from a lady who wanted to know if I could paint her husband's Harley from a photo. We're working out how she can pay me for that too!
A Brilliant Day!
Brian

I told you you were on to something great with painting bikes - bikers are fanatical about their metal and will pay big bucks for a painting of their pride and joy :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
