The Ferrari that Sean Painted

Uploaded: February 06, 2015 | Entered: February 06, 2015 04:38:34


This is the Ferrari that my (adult) step-grandson painted--with SPRAY CANS! It is appearing this week at the Philadelphia Auto Show. The owner asked Sean to paint a dragon motif; the job was done in June and the car drove across the US and abroad in some sort of rally. The car reached star status. Here's the kick: Sean was not paid for this job! Hopefully it kickstarts his business. You can see other photos at if you like.

I can't even begin to fathom how he accomplished this fantastic work of art with spray can paint. I can only imagine it took months (and months) to accomplish with a huge finely honed sense of artistic talent, to boot. Remarkable! The beautiful end result speaks for itself - have a feeling after this auto show, paying clients are going to beating on his door...or at least ringing him up on his cell. :) Wonderful capture, Michelle! #11241505

Unbelievable work Michelle, your grandson has definitely been blessed with a whole lot of natural talent. I'm sure after this car has finished making the rounds he will not have to worry about where his next job will be coming from. I don't know how he ever got picked to do this job but I think he will be able to write his own ticket from now on. Hope you have a great weekend, stay warm. #11241701
