Painted Skateboards

Here's one of my paintings on a skateboard.  It was inspired by the movie Days of Thunder.  The goal was to try and give the design an energy and speed that is reminiscent of both car racing and skateboarding.

The composition is based on two elements representing two cars that are racing each other and just slightly hitting each other to gain position.  Robert Duvall's quote from the movie: "He didn't slam into you, he didn't bump you, he didn't nudge you - he rubbed you - and rubbin son is racin."

"By striving to do the impossible, man has always achieved what is possible. Those who have cautiously done no more than they believed possible have never taken a single step forward." - Mikhail Bakunin
