Thanks to all of you for your always kind comments and continuous support !

About Calvin's question ... Guadalajara will have the BMW Art Car exhibition until the last day of September in the MAZ (Museo de Arte de Zapopan).

This exhibition consists of only four Art Cars.

Andy Warhol - 1979 BMW M1

Frank Stella - 1976 BMW 3.0 CSL

Roy Lichtenstein - 1977 BMW 320i

Robert Rauschenberg - 1986 BMW 635 CSi

So, in the next weeks, I will show the other Art Cars after working a little bit with them through PS.

Thanks again to all of you. Best regards!

What a beautiful work- and the time is astonishing. Without great mastery and control over the medium- one can not do such a job. Best regards.

Hi David, very interesting and beautiful. Nicely done for colors, lighting and perspective (the way you shot the car). Excellent presentation and processing. A coincidence in a way, as a few nights ago they where talking about this car and Warhol's work on it on German Television. The "M" stands for a special performance engine that are made by BMW's sister company Alpina. These cars were traditionally made by farmers in the state of Bavaria or Bayern hence the letters BMW or "Bayerische Motoren Werke AG" or translated from german.... Bavarian Motor Works. The badge is a sign of a moving propeller at high velocity as they were originally Aircraft engine manufacturers.....Best regards. Dara
