34”w x 44”, (85x110cm) acrylic on canvas
The Drift No 4 continues a series of paintings started in 2000. Its predescesors have featured a Jaguar XKD, a Porsche Carrera GT (2008) and a Porsche 918 (2016) each
as different in style and execution as the one before.
Being young and inexperienced at the time, the Miura was pretty much the first "supercar" I became aware of at its debut. I recall thinking that it was the most beautiful car I had ever seen. I didn't think I had much of a chance at owning one as I drove my Austin-Healy 3000 MkIII which kept me in the poorhouse trying to keep it running (...but the girls liked it so it was OK).
So it's somewhat surprising that it took me some 25 years to get around to doing a painting of the car that I still consider one of the most beautiful around. It has stood the test of time well and is a testiment to the Bertone and Lamborghini folks that were responsible for its creation.
1972 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV2.
This is the poster/event art for the 2018 Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance (September 2018, Ontario, Canada).
