"Desert Snakes"

“I have spent many weekends at carshows in both Canada and the United States, admiring the incredible amount of work enthusiasts put into restoring these Mustangs. It was on one of these expeditions that I saw the rare Cobra Jet which inspired the painting Desert Snakes."- MICHAEL IRVINE

The Details

"Desert Snakes" — Stunning Mustang Cobra Jet

"Desert Snakes" is appropriately set against the scorching desert. This striking watercolor painting captures the aggressive lines of two of Ford’s most powerful Mustangs, the 428 Cobra Jet equipped 1968 fastback and its convertible counterpart. 

Michael uses, not only the depths of the fastback’s body panels, but also the mirror-like chrome trim to reflect the red convertible again and again. The dry, cracked earth and dramatic sky stunningly contrast with the crisp, clean lines of these incredible muscle machines.
