Shelby art
« on: January 16, 2022, 07:46:06 PM »
Possibly a reposting on my part.  I found this little gem on pixels.com again tonight.  Anyone who has or likes red Hertz cars, this might be for you.  My walls in the house are getting filled up.

"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Very elegant if I do say so
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

If you're looking to have one of your own cars painted with you in it, I highly recommend Ruben Duran out of California.  He did my artwork showing my Hertz in the deserts of California.  This painting is done by hand, no computers used.  This guy is a real artist and he created my own Dorian Gray for me.  I attach it again (as I have done on many of my threads before)  I get no fee for the referral.  I have no proverbial dog in the fight.  I do, however, like to see artists thrive, hence the suggestion.
You can find his work and contact info on fineartamerica.com

I attach four photos so you can see how he developed it.  I merely sent in a clear photograph and told him...immortalize me in the California Desert.  I titled the work Desert Rental and he made me a custom plaque bearing that very title.  Over the moon on what he did.  I started out looking for a James Dean painting showing Dean driving his 550 Spyder.  That painting sold.  So I figured, why have him paint Dean in his Porsche when I can have myself painted in an equally cool car that I own.  So that was the genesis of Desert Rental.

That's really well done, especially as hand drawn!

You should use the top sketch on your business card.

That is an interesting suggestion, thanks Van.

I didn't do anything other than come up with the idea and take a timed photograph on a phone mounted to a tripod.  The artist, as you can see, did all the heavy lifting.
