The F333 SP of Momo Doran Racing won the 24 Hours of Daytona driven by Mauro Baldi, Arie Luyendyk, Didier Theys, and Giampiero Moretti. They qualified second and went one better in the race after sneaking by another F333 SP of Scandia Motorsports to secure the win. It was the first time Ferrari had claimed a win in the 24 Hours of Daytona since their famous one/two/three finish in 1967. Six weeks after Daytona the same Momo Doran Racing F333 SP went on to win the 12 Hours of Sebring.

Although the car is accurately rendered, there have been a number of artistic liberties taken with the rest of the image just to make it all work together. It does however capture the spirit of that winning moment on the podium. Thanks to photographer John Brooks for reference material.

First introduced to the public at the 1968 Paris Salon del’Automobile, the 365 GTB/4 Daytona remains an iconic Ferrari. Many mark it as the end of the Enzo era and the last of the classic front-engine GT Ferraris. The Hawkes Glass Building was home to T.G. Hawkes & Co.’s eighty-two years in the cut glass business. This is the original event art that has been published in an exclusive FCA edition of 600 signed/numbered/embossed prints on paper, approx 10 x 14.5 inches for distribution at the event.

34”w x 44”, acrylic on canvas, private collection

The Drift No 4 continues a series of paintings started in 2000. Its predecessors 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 Mk III which kept me in the poor-house trying to keep it running (...but the girls liked it).


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 testament to the Bertone and Lamborghini folks that were responsible for its creation. This is the poster/event art for the 2018 Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance (September 2018, Ontario, Canada).

This time, the car is presented at the front door of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores near Detroit. The art is featured in the event poster as well as other items related to the event.

The original painting for the 2004 Eyes on Design Automotive Design Exhibition, located at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, near Detroit featured the LeMans race-winning Gulf GT40's. The painting depicts the car which won Lemans twice, once as #6 and later as #9. The artist's working title of this painting is "Race Study 3" later renamed by the organizers as "An American Moment at LeMans".
