THE TOM DANIEL FINE ART GALLERY IS OPEN!!!

THE FINE ART GALLERY IS OPEN!

Perseverance is (fortunately) one of my better attributes that helps counteract my seemingly ingrained proclivity for procrastination.


And, so, its only been for at least 3 decades that I’ve dreamed of opening a new, stand-alone fine art gallery that is totally different than most of the fine art items as seen at the ‘original’ TD website.

Now, please go to: www.tomdanielfineart.com where you can peruse what amounts to artwork I’ve created over the past half-century in watercolors, oils, acrylics, gouache and other mediums and in a wide variety of subject matter.

Hopefully, you will like what you see, bookmark the new Tom Daniel Fine Art web site; and please tell your friends.

For collectors who like the MOB ROD, look for TWO different paint and graphics versions - for the Indianapolis and Los Angeles Hot/Wheels Conventions coming soon, BOTH designed by #1 son - Kelly Daniel. Hot looking!

As many of you know, MOB ROD was voted "Casting of the Year" by Hot Wheels Collectors. Many thanks to you ALL for that honor! The "special" limited run issue of MOB ROD - with the body color and wheels chosen via "sElections" ballot - will soon be available, with "special" graphics created by my number one son - Kelly Daniel (his graphic design for MOB ROD was better than mine).

BONNEVILLE and the BLUE FLAME: Recently made the trip to Bonneville to attend the 40th anniversary celebration and dinner party honoring the October 23, 1970 running of the rocket powered LSR vehicle "BLUE FLAME" - driven by the late Gary Gabelich - to a World Land Speed record of: 622.407 MPH in the 'flying mile'; and 630.388 for the flying kilometer record. Those record speeds lasted for more than a decade.

A very well-done slide show was presented by Dick Keller, with his (then) partner at Reaction Dynamics - Pete Farnsworth, adding many interesting aspects and details about the building of the BLUE FLAME.

I took along with me, my model of the AMERICAN WAY LSR vehicle - for some pictures of it ON THE SALT! It drew quite a crowd, with many wanting to have their pictures taken with it. Everyone said they'd like to see it FULL SIZE - and making LSR runs. Me too!

As ALWAYS, THANK YOU for all the letters and e mail with your GREAT stories of your childhood modeling escapades! I DO read them all - and I WILL reply - (though sometimes it takes some time to do that).

Kind regards,
