Yesterday’s Hero is a limited edition print by Dave Barnhouse.
The last race is over, the dust is settling on the track and while the folks make their way out, the kids jump at the chance to get an autograph from their hero. He fulfills their wishes as he nonchalantly perches on the hood of on the ’64 Ford Galaxy he drove to victory. Other competitors are shown tinkering with their “babies” before driving off. Note that the ’65 Chevy 2-door hardtop is shown, and there are sponsor logos visible on the cars. Oh yes, and do you remember Pure Oil? Dave does because this was one of the favorite times of his life … full of very happy memories! Yesterday’s Hero will bring back memories to some and enlighten others to some the of things people enjoyed in the yesterdays.
Dave Barnhouse treasures his country background, and it shows in his distinctive style! Every piece he creates recalls his fond memories of rural and small town America… and makes the viewer feel a sudden, delightful rush of country memories. They let you easily imagine that you are actually present, and part of the scene! Dave’s art has earned many awards and honors. He has been voted one of America’s most popular artists by U.S. ART Magazine, and was twice included in Inform Art’s “Top Ten Hottest Artists” list.
