Ferrari Portrait for Paradise Valley Couple

What do you give to the man who has everything, including two Ferraris? For Julie B of Paradise Valley the perfect Birthday present for her husband Michael was a custom Automotive Portrait of his 2012 Ferrari 458 Spider.

"What makes Classic Automotive Portraits unique is we combine features and details that capture the personality of our client's cars," said Owner-Artist Robert Diepenbrock, "During the photo shoot we consulted with Julie and Michael and determined we wanted to include three views of the car and several unique features, including the Ferrari 'Cavalino' Shield and chrome trunk badge, the chrome 458 Spider dash badge and the chrome 'pininfarina' designers script."

Michael was particularly enamored of the custom red stitching on the upholstery and the embroidered 'Cavalino' on the seat head rests. "We decided to do something we'd never done before," added Diepenbrock, "We used the stitching and embroidered Cavalino to form the custom matte, which created a unique and stunning 'frame' for the Portrait." The completed portrait now hangs in Michael's "Uomo delle caverne" (Man Cave) overlooking his Ferraris.
