Envision your car…

…as the focus of a Dana Forrester watercolor created just for you and incorporating your own ideas! Dana can use photographs of your car to place it in a significant location, such as the original sales dealership, an authentic drive-in or diner, your home or business, or in front of one of his famous brick wall signs.

As an accomplished and highly acclaimed automotive artist, Dana has painted custom watercolors for numerous car enthusiasts across the country. His first step is to provide a preliminary drawing for your approval. Although his creativity and expertise make him especially adept at selecting a background to match the color and era of your car, his ultimate goal is for you to feel a special connection with the final product.

Prices are based on one car per painting. Please add $700 for each additional car. Extremely difficult background subjects may also require additional fees. Prices for larger sizes and murals are available upon request. A deposit of 50% is due prior to adding your name to the waiting list calendar. Dana will then provide a rough preliminary drawing of your car, complete with background, and will schedule the painting after your approval of that sketch. Completion time averages six months, and final payment is due upon your receipt of the finished watercolor.
