Two paintings completed

First up we have Final Lap. Oil on canvas. Size 24" x 40". 

This oil painting is another addition to my speed series of paintings. My goal here was to make the feeling of speed and the light at the end of the day to converge to speak to the viewer, to make them feel that this is in fact the final lap...and this Maserati is going win!

The Maserati Tipo 61 (commonly referred to as the Maserati Birdcage) is a sports racing car of the early 1960s.

Next up: Legends. Oil on canvas. Size 24" x 30". 
Racing legends inspired by Bullitt. With homages to both Steve McQueen and Bill Hickman. Just two classic American muscle machines fighting it out. The Charger may seem to be ahead but don't count that Mustang out!
