Additional Information

THE PAINTING:

Dimensions: 65” x 29” - including the custom black satin wood frame that Tom Kearns built specifically for this piece.

Location & Shipping: This piece is located in Mission Viejo, California and is sold where-is. Any required shipping is the buyer's responsibility.

This painting features a Polo Red 1967 Porsche 911S.

Like most of Kearns’ pieces, this painting began with Kearns doing a line drawing on his computer. From there, he moved back into the physical world, bringing together acrylic paints, India inks, gouache, pencils, and markers to give his subject a sense of motion and visual density. The choice of subject matter, incidentally, came naturally for the Porschephile in Kearns, whose own garage contains a 1994 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 wide-body and a 1986 Porsche 911 Targa (original owner: Thomas C. Mapother, aka Tom Cruise, who purchased the car in Chicago while shooting The Color of Money with Paul Newman and Martin Scorcese).

"Those early 911s are so pure and almost delicate," says Kearns. "In this painting I tried to capture the iconic rear side window, the rear glass, and that shape around it, where you always get these beautiful reflections, as well as a little bit of the bumper and the chrome trim and the rocker, which has a single little beautiful piece of bright work."

THE CHARITY:

All sales proceeds from this NO RESERVE auction will benefit the Purist Group’s annual Winter Toy Drive, which aims to distribute toys and school supplies to disadvantaged Los Angeles-area children during the holiday season.

This painting will be displayed at Purist Group's Winter Drive event on December 10th - we encourage all to come see it and meet Tom and the Marqued team in person!

*Marqued will collect a standard Buyer's Fee from the winning bidder at the close of this auction. Upon successful completion of the transaction, we'll refund the winner's Buyer's Fee directly onto their credit card. Good luck to all!
