Koka: Our annual February trip to participate in the Retromobile Show in Paris with our ArtistAuto colleagues has provided an endless series of locations for new works. It's no secret that historic Paris is a wonderful city, most certainly one of the most beautiful in the world. This has presented many settings for equally historic or "significant" vehicles. My work has become as known for this attention to the setting, mood and background as much as the vehicle featured in the painting. Sometimes internationally recognized sites like the Eiffel Tower in Pres de Champ de Mars and the turning circle in Place de la Concorde are featured in my work.

Place des Vosges is perhaps a little less known outside Paris but is no less a magical setting for the 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K.

The 44x34" (110x85cm) acrylic on canvas is a major new work that was scheduled to premier at the RetroMobile Show in Paris in February 2021.
