ARTIST'S DESCRIPTION: While visiting some friends of very long standing in Scotland last summer, I was commissioned to paint this picture, which was the first car my friend had owned, and it had been used as a henhouse. I had to do some reseach to find images of the old style Morris Minor with a split windscreen, trafficators, and "British racing green" colour. I found the colour the most difficult thing to paint, and although normally when I paint Citroen 2CVs I make them very rustic (and rusty), this was not allowed! It was fun to do, and took some considerable time, with three attempts. I think if I was to do it again, I would make it more "cartoon-like", take the odd door off to show the insides, and paint loads of rust - just for the sheer fun of it.
CARDS: Handmade cards are available.
