Snake in the Grass
|Dan McCrary is a Charlotte artist
with a national reputation for extraordinary automotive art. He has an
exceptional eye for recognizing and capturing the beauty of the automotive
art form. Dan has a particular talent for catching the reflection of one car
in the surface of another, a theme that he uses in a number of his best
If you attended the Fall 2002 Track Event, you have seen his work. He was the featured artist at the Wingate Inn, the event hotel. Dan also did the artwork for the event shirts.
I have known Dan for 20 years now, since our days on the SCCA Solo II circuits. I have several of his pieces hanging in my house. When I saw Snake in the Grass, I had to have it. I though that you might be interested as well.
|The image was captured at Tom Cotter’s
annual “Woody Party” car show on the lawn of his home in Davidson, NC. Tom
is a Vice President of the local Walter Mitty Sports Car Society and proud owner of a 289
Cobra. Several Superformance owners are Vice Presidents and regular
participants at the Woody Party. Snake in the Grass captures one
Superformance Mk III reflected in the surface of another on the lawn at the
Woody Party. I have not been able to determine who the Mk III’s belong to.
Perhaps one is yours.
