I have been in the hobby since my late teens. I love these cars, especially the Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite for its unique personality and character. As I got older, my visual taste and appreciation expanded to other forms of art, too.
The first time I saw Revi Ferrer’s work, I was immediately drawn in by her use of metallic colors. Her paintings take on a dream-like feeling.
Over time, I’ve gotten to know Revi better and my fondness for her and her talent grows. So, during my annual “Nomad’s Christmas Party,” I asked Revi if she would create something while the party was in full swing. I thought she might draw something for us, instead, she wanted to know what I like to see painted. Of course it’s the Bugeye! I’m happy to report the Christmas party-goers got a treat and were delighted by the live performance, as well as by the artwork.
On a base of swirling, metallic, abstract details my Sprite is floating, always in motion. One could even describe it as being in a mind-altering state of reality. It’s like the feeling I get when I’m behind the wheel. I’m transported to a magical place.
