Olaf meets Michael Andretti

This was a day I will not forget anytime soon..... July 17th,1998

The painting is the first attempt on painting in oils. It took what seemed a long time to paint.

My long time friend Horst Kroll suggested we take the painting down to the Molson Indy Toronto, and leave the painting there with the team.We gave our phone numbers to Carl, he was a friend of Horst. (that was on a Wednesday.) On Saturday I received a call on my cell phone, it was the promotions manager of Newman/Haas Kamart Racing.

After chatting a while, this photo was taken, and we were off to watch the qualifying.

Michael bought the painting, this was the first of many motorsports pieces to come. See more racer paintings here.
