Just imagine the sheer number of disappointed pedestrians.
Wile E Coyote nods appreciatively.
Put Cheerleader Camp next door to that, watch property values rise.
With that skill level, I wonder if he's a professional illustrator?
Symbols have the power of the real thing. That's why the dangerous symbols are disabled, the ones that are needed in hieroglyphic texts on funerary objects. Wouldn't do to have those crocodiles and hippopotami, asps, scorpions, Seth and such coming to life and such running around under there in the tomb causing chaos and havoc.
Step 1. Paint a Ferrari on garage.Step 2. Sell garage door to art collector.Step 3. Purchase a real Ferrari.
Option 2 was a penis.
Only 36 250 GTOs were ever made, the bare minimum for homologation. Enzo loved the car but concluded that it wasn't suitable for the street, so thanks to this rare case of Ferrari shortsightedness the 250 GTO is now officially the worlds most valuable car, $45 million being not enough to buy one.
There is a company that sells garage door covers that are murals depicting ever vehicle and airplane you can imagine. They will also blow up private photos.Here's one:https://www.style-your-garage.com/en/Garage-poster/Motifs-for-single-garages/Aircrafts/Jet.html?force_sid=6d2c12d6441a52a94a57cf06651ac0e1
Option 2 was a penis.Fifty percent of humanity do not understand the automobile.
I always thought Ferrari's were sexy. I had reconstructive surgery to make my penis look like one. I don't recommend it. The silicone doesn't hold the shape very long, and lots of women think the bright red color is some kind of racist remark on our Native American population.
Should have read, "There are companies that sell"
The Jaguar XKSS is rarer -- only 16 are known to have survived a fire at Jag's Brown's Lane factory -- and until recently was considered the Planet Earth's "most desirable car".I'd settle for either if anyone's offering a donation...
Quaestor-- I understand the automobile, I just do not understand the fascination with small, fast, expensive, low-to-the- ground impractical sporty things painted bright red.I do understand the need for speed, however. Driving fast is fun.
"Out of the corner of his eye Gatsby saw that the blocks of the sidewalks really formed a road and mounted a GTO to a secret place above the trees, he could ride to it, if he rode alone, and once there he could suck on the pap of life, gulp down the incomparable milk of wonder."
@AprilApple "I just do not understand the fascination with small, fast, expensive, low-to-the- ground impractical sporty things painted bright red."You just confirmed Quaestor's observation. I say this as someone who has owned a couple of things as you described. The current one is garaged for the winter and I'm suffering withdrawal. The attraction is simple - these things provide driving fun, even if they aren't useful in any way. That Ferrari 250 GTO is iconic, but today you can outperform it with a number of sedans with big honking engines, modern suspensions and tires - for example, the rather homely Panamera Turbo S.
The car looks great, but the paint can and shelves are out of perspective.
He could really have made a statement by painting rifles on a rack on the back wall behind the Ferrari.
Is the garage door real or part of the mural?True, I do not share any such fascinations with sports cars.
He should have painted a trillion dollar coin.What's disquieting is how many people now seem to think that kind of illusion should underpin the nation's fiscal and monetary policy.
Just wait until the Maplethorpes start trying to keep up with him.

I just do not understand the fascination with small, fast, expensive, low-to-the- ground impractical sporty things painted bright red.Didn't Andrew Sullivan write the same thing about female genitalia?
That's funny. :) looks awesome!fredsabnormallife.blogspot.com
Can you get one of them things on the Amazon?
And that sound!
Shouldn't it be "Here is a bunch of examples..."?
Apologies for the pedantry, but I believe the term for this type of art is trompe l'oeil.
I just went to the garage and looked at my Ferrari 250 GTO for comparison. His is a pretty good painting, but the headlights are uneven and the frame appears to be bent.
Who in their right mind would keep an opened can of red paint next to their prized automobile?KeninSC is right about the perspective issues, too.
