Faye and I are heading to the Concours d' Elegance of America in Plymouth, Michigan this weekend and we look forward to seeing you there! Want to know more? Click here...

We hope to show off some of what we've been working on, including a new work in progress, the 1930 Stutz convertible coupe, rendered in clay. Among the finished pieces we'll be showing is the 1910 Blitzen Benz, driven by Barney Oldfield to record speed and seen "flying off the face of the earth!" in the picture at the top of this newsletter.

We also will display several design sketches and illustrations I drafted in creating my automotive work. This weekend marks the second time my two-dimensional works have been exhibited as part of a public show.

"The Concours d’Elegance has its roots in 17th century France, when the aristocracy would parade their horse-drawn carriages through the parks of Paris. With the advent of the automobile, Concours d’Elegance events evolved into competitions between automobile manufacturers, custom coachbuilders, and owners, whose vehicles were judged on the beauty of their design.The Concours d’Elegance of America originated at Oakland University’s Meadow Brook Hall, the historic home of Matilda Dodge Wilson, widow of automotive pioneer John Dodge.
