The story behind it is that he always loved his dad's bike, and his dad would joke that he could have the bike when he died. Well, his dad had a cancer scare and gave the bike to the guy I'm seeing, because they didn't think he was going to make it. Though his dad survived, my guy still has the bike and it means so much to him that it sits in his bedroom and he never rides it. I was thinking of painting the bike for him as a part of his gift.
I didn't know if it was a stupid/pointless gift but I've gifted people paintings before and they seemed to like them. I'm attaching a photo of a painting I did for someone I used to know so people can get an idea of the style the bike painting would be. Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
