Car Shows in July

July is almost over, and with it nearly half the summer car show season has slipped by. I cannot believe it has been a month since I last posted anything on our blog. Between going to Chrysler Carlisle and the Concourse D'Elegance at Meadowbrook, the release of Michael's 429 Boss Mustang painting, "Boss Building" and the kids being home on summer vacation, it's been pretty crazy!

Sometimes it's a juggle having two young kids (they're 10 and 12 now) and being able to attend and exhibit Michael's automotive art at car events. But getting to show people his incredibly detailed work up close and personal, and seeing their reactions to it, it's worth it! We get a lot of 'ooohs' and 'aaahs'. The most common thing we here?: "WOW!"

It's that kind of reaction that keeps Michael painting and let's him know he made the right decision in walking away from a successful career as as commercial artist to turn his talents on capturing the classic lines of the automobile! And he's lovin' it!

Here are just a few things people have had to say about Michael's paintings and the Limited Edition Prints, Artist Proofs with Remarque and Gallery Edition Canvases he offers:

"AWESOME!!!" — David M.

"Love Michael's art - especially that Petty print he recently released." — Terry D.

"... [they] look fantastic (as usual)" — Anthony T.

"The print looks great.  I can't wait for it to come so I can hang it next to the other one." — Dave H.

"Beautiful art work." — Jack N.
"Your passion for auto/art is leaps above the rest." — B.H.

"I love your work and can’t wait to buy your next Chevy painting – I have them all so far." — Dave L.

Thank you to everyone, everywhere, who has been so supportive of Michael's work! He couldn't do it without you!! From our family to yours, we hope you're enjoying a safe, happy, car show filled, summer. See you "at the show!" — Linda
