Takuma Sato signs a limited edition print!
The 101st running of the Indy 500 was a great race, with pace, strategy and luck all playing out in the final few laps. Takuma Sato passed Helio Castroneves with a couple of laps to go, and Helio did not have the car to be able to pass Takuma back. Right after the race I painted this image at the Firestone hospitality chalet in from of hundreds of Firestone guests. It took about 2 hrs all in, but was complicated by the fact that a thunderstorm knocked out the
power. However, a number of people in the crowd pressed against the stage turned on the flashlights in their phones to illuminate the canvas to allow me to finish!!
Before I was done, both winning car owner Michael Andretti and driver Takuma Sato came up on stage with me to celebrate with us and to sign the painting! I am happy to announce that Takuma has agreed to also sign a number of very limited edition prints of this image!! Please see to order:
