It's Been Awhile For Some New Art

 Yes it has... It'd been awhile since I posted some new art.

With the continuing postponements of my shows planning to get the latest info out to you has been a challenge. For example in my last post I had mentioned the I would be doing the "Mission Federal ArtWalk" on April 24-25. That has now been pushed back till, October 2-3. However, this has not stopped in my from creating some news pieces.

The creation of every image production begins with a vision, and the conceptual feeling and emotion it brings about. Here's one of my new pieces that I will be first showing at "Automobilia Monterey" in August. However, with no shows before that, I'm offering the first print of this here in my email rather than holding off. It will be available in two sizes as "Artist Proof #1". Available as a 16"x 24" or a 24"x 36" both printed on gloss metal with a double float brushed metal backing framing the image. You'll love it! If you're interested in the A/P. please let me know.

It's the Porsche 908 that won the 1970 Targa Florio, driven be Jo Siffert and Brian Redman. It had a 2990 cc 8 cyl engine, developing 350 hp, and a top speed of 180. It weighed 1,100 lbs, an astonishing figure for a long distance racing car. In comparison the Porsche 917K weighed 1.900 lbs.

Stay safe my friends,

Some Good News

It's been a long time, but getting some good news on doing shows this year is very welcome, indeed.  It looks like Mission Federal ArtWalk San Diego is going to happen on Saturday, April 24 - Sunday April 25 held again in Little Italy. I'm sure we will all be wearing masks, but at least it's going to happen! I'll post more news on this show as we get closer, and where my booth will be.

Now to something that I have been thinking about posting. It's one of my double floats printed on metal with the brushed metal backing. This image is called "Patina Queen" and comes in various sizes.

This '53 Porsche coupe wears its well lived life emblazoned on its surface for all to wonder about. What roads did it travel, what scenery did it pass, and did it make its way along route 66 traveling from the East Coast to the West where it ended up? Questions that may never be answered. But as you and others gaze at it, thoughts come rushing in. Can I make "Patina Queen" yours?

Trust is a funny thing, it's very difficult to build and very easy to lose. 

To build it, one needs to have a consistent voice. In the art world it's the same. The quality of the prints, framing, and presentation. For me the back of the art piece needs to look just as good as the front even though no one is going to see it. I guess I'm overly obsessed about that, but that's the way I look at it. My name is on it, my stamp of approval to say and being true to my word. I'm going to give you the best I can to hang in your home, office, or garage. 

If you look at my website (, I guarantee the finished print well look better than what you see. Speaking about that, I always tell my clients, if your ordering something from it, pick the "Metallic" print option. The response I invariably get, the print looks better than expected.

So, this bond of trust is something that I take very seriously.

To another subject, one of my clients called and wanted an image of his three cars and his new custom garage. I'm in the process of doing a 28"x 40" double float print on metal for him. It's still to be finished, but I can't wait to see his face when I deliver and hang it. 

Stay safe my friends and hopefully I'll have some news about upcoming shows in the near future.

Time to Move On

2020 to 2021, it's time to move on! I'm sure we'll all agree, it's time...

I would like to say your support this past year is really appreciated. With all my shows canceled, many of you were on my website and ordered photo paper prints, others ordered the custom limited edition metal prints, and still others ordered "Print on demand produces" like shirts, mask, phone cases, and canvas prints. Thank You!

I don't say this lightly, I couldn't make this crazy photography journey of cars and art without your support.

Here is to the best New Year yet! May it bring you all the happiness you deserve! I hope to see you at a show this coming year or at where my art is represented, Forest and Ocean Gallery in Laguna, or Veloce Motors The Vault Miramar in San Diego. Keep the Faith, my friends!

Time For Some Thanks

I always try to look at things in a positive light. After all my art shows being cancelled this year, my on-line orders have never been stronger! So, I try to look at it as one of the best years of my life. As with you, we all faced challenge after challenge, we adapted, and we have overcome for the most part. 2020 has forced us to grow exponentially. I try not to take that for granted. One of the things Monique and I did this year was sale our house for 15 years and move to a new home. I now have a new work space that I love in our home to produce my art (See photo). So, Thanks to all of you that follow me here, your support is really appreciated! Again....THANK YOU!

I wish you all a very Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas! Please say safe, my friends!

Some Holiday Spirit.

 Hi all,

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I'm sure it was stressful for some not having your entire family with you, but hopefully the vaccine will be out shortly and we all can get back to normal life. Speaking of a little normalcy, the holiday trees will be going up, and with that I would like to introduce some Holiday Ornaments with my art printed on them,.

Have someone on your gift list who already has it all? Give them the one thing they don't have but will absolutely love. You can now order 7 different ornaments for your tree or as gifts for your friends. These are really cool ceramic disc with different Porsche models printed on them in vivid color. I've included the link to order one or more below. Where else can you find anything like these with automotive art?

Forest and Ocean Gallery

Hi all,

This has been a year like no other for us. If you may have noticed an increase in emails from me this year, you're right. With this covid thing going on and show after show getting canceled I needed to move to a more online presence. Luckily, I started building my online email list years ago. Thank goodness I've been able to survive the dark period, and with steadfast support of new/repeat collectors like you, move ahead. Thank you!

Those emails stopped going out last month. We've been moving from one house to another as well as doing a remodel on the new one at the same time. If you catch my drift it's been difficult to get emails out. Also, in my last post I mentioned I would have some exciting news coming up.

Well here's the news. I was invited to show my photography in the number one galley in Laguna Beach! It called the "Forest and Ocean Gallery." It's located at 480 Ocean Av, Laguna Beach, 1-949-371-3313. They're open during the week and closed on Mondays. Even though Laguna Beach has moved back into the purple color for restrictions on businesses, the art gallery is still able to stay open.

If you're in the area, be sure to stop by and check out my art! Why not get out and blow some dust off. I know you will love the 8 large prints on metal in person.


PS. Please forward this email onto your friends that may be interested! Thanks!

Rising To The Top

 Hi all,

Sometimes there's events that we attend and the best way to describe them as the "The Cream rises to the top."

Luftgekuht (Air-Cooled) was one of them in 2019 before all this craziness happened. For those of you that have not gone or heard of it before, it celebrates the Porsche air cooled cars with a special show once a year. These cars were made from the beginning in 1949 to the last one in 1998 (Liquid cooled there after). For the Porsche enthusiasts, they hold a special place in their hearts. The 2019 show held in the back lot of Universal Studios with over 6000 in attendance and 600 cars in the show, the high-lite was the awesome Porsche 917 set in front of a vintage movie theater.

I shot this image as a remembrance of that special day at Luftgekuht. It's available in different sizes printed on archival photo paper suitable for framing. You can find it on my website at the following link. Check it out.

Do I Hate Letting an Original Go?

Sold! This is my "Happy to sale an original, but sorry to see it go" post. With all this social distancing stuff going on, this one called, "Fireworks" was delivered to a collector in a Target parking lot. 

One of my not so publicized botanical prints on canvas. I do these as "One off's" just for fun. So yes, these originals I'm sorry to see them leave. But, it's going to a good home! 

I'll have some big news coming up at the beginning of November about a gallery I've been asked to show my art in, more on that later. So, stay safe my friends and start getting heady for the Holidays!

Look Stylish...

 Hi all,

I don't know about you, but I try to live in "Tee Shirts".... I don't think it's just a California thing. I see friends at car events always sporting something that says what they like.  So for me, I try to wear shirts that give me joy when I put them on. 

I'm not sure if you've had a chance to check out my "Market Place Store" with all kinds of cool stuff. My wife's art is also on there, so take some time and pay a visit. How knows, you may find just the thing you're looking for. Time to get some coolness on....

Here's the link:

Something New....

 Hi all,

With all this social distancing going on, it's left me time to work on something new. Besides, how much yard work can one guy do?

I've added five new pieces to the "Monthly Hot Buys" Gallery. These are kinda' a "Graphic Style" with classic pastel colors as backgrounds. They'll make great upbeat collection framed on your wall. And now's the perfect time to grab them before the price goes up to the regular prices on my prints.

Remember to get the 20% off in this gallery, use "Hot Buys" in the checkout. Here's the link to my site:

Also, I've had these same cool images printed on 100% cotton tees in neat colors. Here's is the link for those:

Time Well Spent...

 Hi all,

With no shows for most of this year, I've been very lucky to have collectors calling me for projects. Some have had me working on their images for a print, others calling me for commissions, and yet others calling me with request for images to fit a special place in their home. So, for me I've been very lucky! I've had the ability to live with art during this period.

Which leads me to living with art is an undeniably enriching and emotional experience. I've been able to do it daily, if not with a camera, but then, on a computer creating. For example this commission. Cathy will be selling her car and wanted a shot of her and the car for remembrance. You ask, why the San Diego Stadium in the background and why the driving suite? Well, Cathy has been successfully racing her car for many years on tracks and got her start racing in the Stadium parking lot. That stadium will be torn down in the next two years. That's why this location.

You'll see how everything looked out of the camera with weeds, handicap parking signs, ugly paving, needing a new tree, and a better sky. As a fine art photographer I'm genuinely interested in the art of it all, especially in the finished piece.
