Motorcycle Artist A.D. Cook joined Director Peter Starr Thursday night at Red Rock Harley-Davidson in Las Vegas to benefit in aid of prostate cancer education.
Last Thursday, September 8th, we participated in a special screening of Peter Starr’s 1980 classic “TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT, the Motorcycle Odyssey”, digitally remastered.
As for me, I always enjoy an evening that includes American motorcycles, art, and a movie.

Five of my favorite motorcycle paintings were displayed: one original and four A.D. Cook canvas art prints from our new full-size collection. My art feels right at home among all that glistening chrome on the showroom floor.

DREAM 103 by A.D. Cook
I shared my latest painting, DREAM 103, along with a collection of my motorcycle art. DREAM 103 actually originated at Red Rock Harley-Davidson, where I photographed my model, Ashley, during one of their July bike washes. I then went on to create my painting, which was recently featured at the SKIN & BONES MOTORCYCLE AND ART EXHIBIT at the Legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
