Z4 & Z3 Paintings

Found a post on another forum a while back about a guy on EBay selling Z3 and Z4 paintings. The reviews were good enough that I ordered two myself. They're worth every bit of the $85 a piece I paid plus $10 shipping. They're hand painted, and obviously took talent to create. There are a few obvious short cuts up close, but I still enjoy having them on my wall.

Here's a link to the EBay store where I bought them.

Here are the pictures:

They came stretched over a wood frame.

I really want to buy them, but he keeps making more, and I would have to have a complete set of Z3 M Coupe artwork.

The price keeps going up!

I had a painting done by a local artist

I like to have paintings of my collectable cars. We took a road trip this summer and I had a watercolor of the car in Yosemite on the Tioga Pass road commissioned.

i dont trust it because there reprints. and i came up with that conclusion because he is selling the same painting twice and no paintings being done by hand like it says can make a perfect recreation like it shows.... not worth the money

-LOL, I think I know that lake. Nice pic.

I haven't painted a Z3 or Z4 yet (don't know why ), but I did these paintings of a Z8, one of BMW's F1 cars, an M6 and my M5:

Pal, wow

I am so impressed with your art. I assume you are a professional artist, and I have to inquire if you have a web site that features your art.
Great stuff.

They're hand painted. I'm sure they differ individually. The two that I own have several small shortcuts/errors that I'm sure are unique. These paintings are worth exactly what he's asking for them.

Great stuff.
I am semi-professional I guess - meaning that I sell paintings, do commissions and design work...but only when a project really interests me. Now that I have a kid my time priorities have shifted so that I don't have the production output that I used to. The last few projects I worked on (race car liveries and some logo designs) I did just because they were interesting and didn't bother to charge $ for them. So one might argue that they weren't "professional" jobs. My website is on my sig.
