I am initiating a new project melding my love of painting with my interest in classic cars, particularly the MG. Every artist explores different and new ideas on the back of a particular subject. Call it muse, motive or even armature the subject provides a framework or matrix to build on or contain the work. So as I base my series on the features of this old British car I will use it to explore process, technique and awen.
Each piece will begin as a large oil painting and then will be reproduced in limited editions on archival quality materials. I will also have to teach myself to properly photograph the works so lighting equipment will be needed. Once its been professionally reproduced the edition will be offered with a certificate of authenticity at a reasonable price point. Initially I will market these reproductions to MG aficionados but I think they may appeal to other collectors as I explore the subject further. My first in the series is called "Two Enthusiasts (discussing Mk1 suspension)." I'm having fun already.
This is a poor photo. Once I get my new gear together I will post an update. I hope you enjoy.
