"Lotsa Storyboard Cars, But Never A Painted One..."

I was a car guy, but...
I'm back in 'da Bayou, from a three week vacation in California. I was thumbing through a hoard of bills, Christmas cards, and end of the year financial statements, when "what to my surprise" I ran across a letter from Jean Bragg Gallery. Inside, I received my first check ever from a gallery. Isn't it rather fitting that my first sale from any art gallery is a car.

I've rendered cars almost all my career, at agencies like Saatchi&Saatchi, RP Alpha, Team One, JWT, Y&R, you name 'em! But, I can't remember ever doing one in paint... well, maybe, a few!
