Sea Jet

Sea Jet, 18 x 12cm, oil on canvas, framed

Made in the mid 50’s with classic New York design and typography. A real challenge to paint the text and achieve the flourish of handwritten text.

The original toy came complete with a mini motor built in the UK.

All Aboard

The Zig Zag Railway in the Blue Mountains finally came to the end of the line, closing indefinitely last year due to a lack of skilled workers and funds. Enthusiasts from around the world gathered to board and ride the train one last time, “dismayed at the thought of the Zig Zag closing”, yet ready to enjoy the experience of passing through the stunning scenery by steam one last time.

It was the hi-vis jackets that really helped me bring this piece to life. Illuminating the figures in the foreground against the subtle colours of the locomotive and rusting rolling stock. Old vs new technology and clearly time for a drink!

Although the building at first appears abandoned, it is unmistakably used and maintained. Plastic chairs, buckets and occasionally even clothing are hung out to dry. The occupant; an old lady, still tends her vegetable garden.
