All silver chrome and berry-red steel, the grille of the 1937 Packard One-Twenty in this classic car photograph seems the epitome of the old-school glamour for which the 1930s are often feted. As Packard was one of the finest automakers of her era, it seems fitting an automobile bearing the luxury marque should look so gorgeous nearly a hundred years after she rolled off the line—and I think my photograph really does show this particular Packard 120 off to her best advantage!

The red car's silver grille fills the frame of the car art photo. Functional vertical louvres from top to bottom are set within a nose that is clearly influenced by Art Deco elegance; the Packard grille of this era is one of the most recognizable in the classic car world, and easily distinguished the sophisticated Packard automobiles from their (dare I say?) lesser sisters.

Tall and stately, the Deco-inspired grille in its berry-red steel frame is flanked on either side by classic round headlights mounted onto stems emerging from the fenders gently curving downward toward the One-Twenty's nose. The classic car's front fender is not like anything seen or even imagined on present day cars—three horizontal bars of shiny silver chrome, two slender ones atop the thicker bottom one.

Behind the '37 Packard, a perfect summer blue sky is the ideal contrast to the red car. A combination of hazy and fuzzy white clouds streak across the sky, lending the classic car photo a rather patriotic aspect. Mostly, though, it's a simple and classic background to highlight the beauty of the 1937 Packard One-Twenty herself. The bright blue and white offset the red and silver old car starring in the 9x12 vintage car photo just perfectly.

≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Classic Car Art Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition Packard photo you receive will not be watermarked.

• I personally sign & number the back of each art photograph. After 776 prints are made, the edition is closed and the photograph will no longer be available for sale.

• My photographs are professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a matte finish to be smudge, fade, and water resistant.

• Very few of my art photographs are a standard print or frame size; thus each print has a slender white border surrounding the photograph itself. This border not only allows you to buy a frame "off the rack", but serves to lend a bit of additional protection to the actual photograph itself from any serious damage.

• A signed Certificate of Authenticity is included with each photo print.

• Signed photographs are carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, sandwiched between pieces of foam core, and mailed First Class. Once I have a tracking number, it will be sent to you.

• My monitor is professionally calibrated for colour; therefore, the colours in your received print may be slightly different from what you see displayed online.

As few of my finished photographs are standard frame size, each of my photographic prints has a white border all the way around the image. This not only means you can buy a frame 'off the rack' if you do not want a custom frame, but the white border does protect the image itself from errant fingerprints or other unintentional damage.
Since these photographs are my own interpretation of the sights as seen by me, I am sorry, but I generally will not make a colour photo black & white or vice-versa. Occasionally during post-production I'll be unable to decide which I like better and publish both, but while it does happen, it's not often, and the image I do release is not arbitrary, but the one I think best suits the subject and composition. Thanks for understanding this.
