My father loved this! Having his beloved 1966 Mustang and his two daughters in the painting was a highlight for him. Tim did a fantastic job of capturing the personalities of my sister and I from the pictures we sent. And obviously, he captured the spirit of the car. It was a wonderful and fabulous present that my father will always cherish. I don't think it could be any better than it is.

When I stumbled across this opportunity I couldn't believe it - my friend has an old Ford Truck that means the world to him, and I can think of no better way to honor the sentiments attached to it, than through an original painting. This is the truck he learned to drive on and inherited from his father. It took him through high school, college, jobs, adventures and everywhere he both needed and wanted to go. He makes whatever repairs are necessary (the thing is basically entirely rebuilt) and has a local garage on the lookout for parts. He continues to drive it despite having other options because this truck is the one that matters. He washes it every weekend. Obviously, it is more than a vehicle, it's a connection to parts of his life that are incredibly significant. He still carries a football behind the driver's seat. What Mr. Wirth created went above and beyond our expectations. He included so many thoughtful elements that when we opened the box we literally gasped. The piece is incredible. Beyond words. The colors and the content, the title and frame - every part of it just fit exactly with our intention. Something that somehow resulted from the stories of my friend, told to me and relayed to the artist along with snapshots I was able to sneak. I couldn't believe the outcome. Mr. Wirth is not only talented, but he understands - and that makes his work exceptional. Absolutely, it was an investment and a leap of faith, but on all accounts WORTH IT. I have never enjoyed so much the act of giving a gift - I'm pretty sure it ended up meaning as much to me as it does to my friend. Wherever he ends up - and however he ultimately gets there - he will always have this unique portrait of this very special part of his life. His truck and his memories will survive generations. We are so grateful.

The artist captured the photograph of my husband's beloved first car perfectly! Can't wait to surprise him with it for his 60th birthday! I was told when to expect it and it arrived as promised!

I was super nervous that it would not turn out the way I wanted it, but I couldn't be happier with it. I hoped it would look great, but it far exceeded my expectations. I supplied the artist with 2 photos of the car and a separate photo of the type of background I wanted. It was incorporated beautifully. The artist's associates emailed me and spoke to me personally over the phone to ensure it was what I wanted. Also, they helped me be realistic about the time it would take to create the piece, so that I could plan for which occasion to use it as a gift.
Tim painted a 1989 Toyota Landcruiser as a gift for my father. I sent photos of the car and the background I would like and was AMAZED at how well both were recreated in the piece. Not only that, but Tim took the time to personalize the framing (a message from my sister, mom, and myself). Such an awesomely unique gift...that will sadly last longer than my dad's Landcruiser.
Tim not only captured my dad's car perfectly, he actually captured the car's personality too. It is a one of a kind work of art. My dad is going to love it!
What a wonderful gift for a car enthusiast! We collect contemporary art (we like pieces that tell our story) and this piece fits right in. Thoughtfully and expertly executed with a wonderful whimsical style. Thank you!
This was a wonderful gift for my husband who still talks about his car from high school. I sent in a picture with a description of the building I wanted in the background. He loved it and was so surprised! A great gift for the person who has everything!!

This was a gift for my husband, who loves Corvettes, and the background is of the ski slopes in Colorado, where we have a second home. Incorporated the best of both to create a unique piece of art.

Gift for my father now that he has finished restoration of his antique car. He absolutely loved it.
