...I can do color pencil. Mostly locomotives and aircraft so far & some cars, but only drawings... Oils and acrylics would likely be best for cars. I'll bet you would do very well. :-)

If I was going to have someone do my car, the man would be Tim. I like his stuff very much and don't think you can get any better.

Just my opinion of course!!

I want to look into having a photo of my car blown up and put onto my snowboard. Not exactly art, but it will be pretty cool if it can be done.

I motion for Tim to be our guy to maybe take orders with provided pics, and offer at a profit of coarse some sort of artwork, for us. Please...

I will send photos first and will talk funds for services and see what he can do, I do believe it will be this would be good for us all.

My belief, is a picture of an old car one use to have on the wall is precived as holding on to the past, BUT a art piece is for ever and proud to have at one time.

Just my thoughts and I will put my cash where my typeing is.

Tim I will send you a pic if you send me a price...

...Thank you for your confidence, but please, let me experiment a little bit to make sure I could do the justice for your beautiful cars. As I mentioned before; oils and acrylics would be a better medium of which I'm not experienced. 'Tell you what; give me a month to do one & post it here & we'll see what you think. In the meantime - keep the door open for a "painter" should one be among us to fill the bill. It's too early yet to come up w/ a price however...

Sara - I believe we can put your picture on your snowboard as well as purses, charms, decorative tiles, signs & more. Contact Sharon at www.horsedesigns.com .

Yeah, Tim's a great drawer but, He doesn't really call himself an artist.. He's self taught, and been trying to teach me how to draw. Which I'm getting better at with practice..

I wanted him to draw a picture of my car - a 1998 Saturn SL2.. a nice car but, no CA special! He might take a while to come up with a drawing, He's one busy guy!!

Sara,
Did you mean to say sNowboard?
Or did you mean sHowboard for car shows?

Either would be cool
