More Inspiration for Creative Paintings

We get asked all the time where Michael finds his inspiration. I can say with confidence the answer is ... EVERYWHERE!

For example, he's always been fascinated by the history of racing. Specifically, how Trans Am race cars like the AAR Cuda or the Challenger T/A were the true reason for the 'classic' cars we have today. Without those cars, drivers and engineers (and SCCA qualifying rules), none of those amazing cars would be on road, in private collections or on display at automotive events the world over. It's that backstory, that inspires Michael to create amazing pieces like "Born To Race"!
