If you read my earlier post, A.D. Cook Art National Corvette Museum, then you know that I am moving forward to create a unique Corvette artwork for inclusion in the LUSTER: Realism And Hyperrealism In Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Paintings exposition scheduled to exhibit from March 16th through December 31st, 2024, in celebration of Corvette’s 70th Anniversary and the Corvette Museum’s 30th Anniversary!
For this, I am creating two four-foot by five-foot paintings designed to display as a diptych. Both images will complement one another when hung side-by-side or displayed separately. One canvas will showcase a white 1953 C1 to commemorate Corvette’s first year, with the second canvas depicting a 2023 Arctic White C8 Stingray Z06. When displayed together, the two artworks pay tribute to Corvette’s timeline and 70th Anniversary.
The National Corvette Museum will prominently display the artworks on a special wall within the Museum’s Gallery through 2024 as the centerpiece of the LUSTER Exhibition.

This morning, the unwrapping revealed my two paintings for the first time, all unwrapped and ready for final details.
