My Submission represents both the Geographical Location of Miami itself as well at the Persistent Artistic Presence that exudes from this wonderful city.

Inside of a FIATŪ 500L rockin' out at Art Basel, Miami, you can expect there to be
Loads of Laughter, Loud Vibrant Music, Positive Vibes, Artistic Eyes, and a tons of Miami Swag!
I really wanted capture the "Essence" and "Vibe" of the city and present it in an Art Basel way!

I also wrote a lil Poem inspired by the competition's theme...

Crazy Crews and Rockin'Tunes
Peaceful Vibes... Artistic Eyes...
Kick out Hate,
Just keep the Laughs
Join celebrate this day we have
Lets Taste the Waves...
Let's Drink the Sun...
F for Fiat...
For Endless Fun!

Hopefully when people look at this piece they instantly fall into a good mood, appreciate the little details, and just smile for no good reason.... :)

Thank you for all your wonderful Comments XD

I share your frustration.  If it's any consolation to you, I expected you to make the semifinals.  Who knows?  You might even get to replace one of them if they can't come up with the full-res art or get disqualified for some other reason.

I have to admit that sometimes I don't understand the criteria used here on DA for picking semi-finalists or winners. Now, my entry for this contest was put together using elements from one of my paintings,  which I did because I was pressed for time, so it wasn't a wholly new creation - so I didn't have high expectations, but I felt I had to try. But yours was undoubtedly one of the best - and I"m truly stumped why it wasn't picked. I have a Nissan Cube, and I'd be proud to use your window wrap design on it, FWIW.

I really think yours should have been a semi-finalist at least. I love it!
