Race at Dawn

Race at Dawn

For this piece I was inspired by the limited edition 1970 Mustang Boss 302 model car that was a tribute to Parnelli Jones win with his ‘70 Boss 302 at the Trans-Am season series championship for Ford. So I thought what better way to portray it than to have it on the track. The 1970 Trans-Am season ended the same way it began, which was with Parnelli in the winners circle. People become entranced with the power of the Mustang, but the legacy makes them stay. I understand this is a ‘69, but I chose to do this year because personally I like the extra character that this tail light style adds.

I’ve always had a passion for art, because when I look at paintings I am able to see the way that that artist saw the world. The paintings of the past create a way for people of this time to understand the things that happened in history. It’s a way of showing who they are, what they’ve been through, or what they’re going through, and maybe even where they want to go in life. With my paintings, my goal is to make people feel something whatever that may be. Some of them offer a sense of magic, because there can be magic in the landscapes you discover. They may have been discovered by other people but the new places you travel to were not yet discovered by you. Other paintings have more of a surrealistic sense to them, as they’re places you could only dream of going. Though, dreams are what makes the world go ‘round, and they push people to do the things they need to do to live the life they want. Don’t let the reality of the day-to-day life break down your dreams, and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. I mostly paint landscapes in order to show the beauty outside of day-to-day life, and the adventures that one would be able to go on. I also mostly paint sunsets because to me that is when the sky really comes alive. The clouds become their own work of art, all of the colors that don’t usually belong transport you to a place of wonder and complete amazement. I also have a passion for cars so y’all will see a few collections in the future with some fun adrenaline. My favorite thing to capture with cars is adventure, traveling, and just the simple joys of living nights out on the town under the neon lights.

Support Draw to Drive

Dear friends,

when we started this journey, our only goal was to build a small community of octane art lovers. Your passion made Draw to Drive community to grow beyond our expectations. Draw to Drive is a project developed, maintained, and financed by a team of three co-founders. With the constant growth of the community, our operating costs grew as well, together with the time needed for maintaining the current platform. Next to that, new features had to take a back seat.

We came to a point when we have to ask for your support to develop new features and keep the platform running. We have opened a Patreon page if you want, you can now support us to build a better platform and get a few perks in return.
