Race Car Paintings....


Recommended Posts

After leaving art school in 1980 were they taught us to "paint what you know", I desperately wanted to be the next Michael Turner. I gave it the best I could but not being able to pay the bills I had to walk away. Everything you've ever heard about "poor starving artist" is true and then some.

Perhaps now being retired, I could look at the automotive art world in a different light. I think I enjoy building model race cars more than doing paintings of them.

Most are done for ads and posters that I also designed. Some are commissions. I was racing my own Formula Ford at the time on a shoe string budget and would often barter artwork for race entry fees and hotel stays. I was broke but I raced....
