Hand Painted Pinstriping On A 2019 Ford F-250 Pickup Truck
Here is a full pinstriping job on a Ford F-250 pickup that some might feel is a little too much striping, but I believe it is still a very classy looking truck. Some people like even more pinstriping, and some people prefer less. I like to work with the customer to create a complete looking well balanced pinstriping job on a vehicle that fits their taste. To see more pictires of this truck please click on the "Pinstriping" tab above. You can also see more of my work by searching the web. Just type in "pinstriping Dennis Day" or "Pinstriping D.Day Designs."

Flames On A 1979 Chevy Pickup
I painted the flames on this 1979 Chevy pickup when it was brand new shortly after the owner chopped the roof.
As you can see in the photo above the roof is flamed as well. And the two hundred or so louvers on the hood were fun to paint over!

Windows That Aren't Really There In a Private Residence, Central Ma
 My customer commissioned me to paint Trompe-l'œil copies on the wall facing you in the photo below, of the window on the right in the photo below. My mission was to realistically create the optical illusion that they exist on what was actually a plain, blank gray wall. This wall is 17' feet high. One of the most challenging parts of the project was to paint the crown moldings at the top of the windows to look like they were actually there, but they aren't. There is only a painting of them going up the wall and out onto the ceiling. To see more pictures of this mural go to ddaydesigns.blogspot.com

A Painting On Canvas Of A Romantic And Sentimental Place For A Newlywed Couple.
On a cold winter's day, in a small town in upstate New York, the husband in a recently married couple had proposed to his bride on the walking bridge in the painting below. He had a professional photograph taken that I was able to use as a reference to create the painting. The photograph was taken at a time that showed the same conditions as when the proposal was made, on a cloudy evening near sunset, after a snowfall. The painting is done with acrylics on canvas and measures 18" by 24". It was given as a gift to his wife for their wedding anniversary. To see a couple more photos of the painting click on the "Other Things I Paint" tab above.

1940 Ford Flames!
To fill my customer's request I painted these 1950's classic hot rod style flames on this 1940 Ford. The flames are masked off and sprayed on the car. I then hand painted the white outline around the flames. After that my brother Richie, who paints for Wilson and Steely Kustom Koachworks in Athol, MA, where the flame job was done, clearcoated over the flames. Many people consider the '40 Ford Coupe to be one of the quintessential American Hot Rods. 
The finished car, out on the road.

The Park Diner was built in 1933 and was operated in Worcester MA. It was completely restored inside and out by master craftsmen.

Wall Mural Of An Italian Garden
This mural is painted on a wall in a home in central MA. The house is a split level ranch, and the wall in the entryway between the upper and lower floors was very plain. The home owners wanted me to create the look of a window overlooking an Italian garden using a photo they provided. The mural is approximately six feet tall. Everything in this photo is hand painted except for the shutters. Those are real, and were cleverly attached to the wall by the customer after I finished the painting.
