The Survivor [pc]*


While driving into the country to Sherenden, Hawke’s Bay New Zealand I spotted this this wreck of a vintage Wolseley parked in the paddock mouldering away exposed to the elements. I shot 2 or 3 images as I thought it was very paintable. Later, back in the studio I completed the work on a 900×600 canvas. A couple of months later a lovely elderly American couple with their daughter, (who was the Regisitrar of an American university in California). They were art collectors staying in our bed and breakfast. They visited my studio and expressed interest in two paintings. Iris suggested that they be placed in one of their rooms to view at their leisure….the next morning before leaving they requested that I pack them for travel as they wished to purchase the two, The Survivor being one of them. The other painting was Bobbing Along in the Bay.
