The Cord marque only existed from late 1929 to 1937 but in that short space of time they designed some fabulous vehicles and introduced a host of innovations to motoring. Probably the most famous of the Cords were the 1936 and 1937 models. The model featured in this oil painting is a 1936 Westchester.
I recently read about a young chap who inherited his Grandpa’s 1950’s Chev. He is busy restoring the old car but it’s a race against time. His Gran has a few months to live and he wants to take the old lady for one last drive. Here’s hoping he gets it finished in time.
This sad old Chevrolet is a small oil on canvas panel painting measuring 148 mm x 210 mm (6 in x 8 in). It forms part of a series which includes a 1933 Ford, a 1933 Ford sedan delivery, a 1950 Chevrolet deluxe, a 1936 Cord Westchester and others.
This 1933 Ford is still on active duty in the USA and was recently sold after being with one family from the early 1950’s.
This is an oil on canvas panel measuring 148 mm x 210 mm (6 in x 8 in) and forms part of a series including Just an old Ford, 1937 Chevrolet Coupe, 1950 Chevrolet deluxe , a 1936 Cord Westchester and others.
Most artists I know can knock out a finished work in a few days. Some even in a day. I’m a little slower. In fact, I probably feature towards the end of the field. Start off like the hare and then get side tracked. What with writing for a car show in our suburb, grandchildren and sundry other distractions, I’m likely, most times, to finish behind the hare!
The car show was successful but is now a thing of the past so there is no excuse for not painting. Here’s an update on the Bull Elephant which I wrote about in February. He is slowly coming together and should be done in a week or so. Not the best image as it was taken with a mobile. My own camera fell and the case shattered. There are no spares available so I will have to fork out for a new one in the not too distant future.
Two John Deere tractors left out overnight – Ref OP 458
This is an oil painting on a canvas panel. Its quite small, measuring 250 x 355 mm or 10 x 14 inches. It started life as an English thatch cottage but there was no passion for it, so it was painted over. Then it was supposed to be a man sitting under a street light and that didn’t grab me either. I kind of had the streetlight and I love tractors and snow so that was the next thought that came to me. Streetlight, tractor and snow. There they are, two John Deere tractors left out the afternoon before and overnight snow has covered them in a white blanket.
This tractor painting would be in a very small group of paintings. Tractors and snow are an uncommon combination. If you prefer hotter tractors then you may like Tractor in Norfolk , Old Blue or In for repair. On the other hand you may have a favourite tractor photo that you would like painted.

My humble tribute to the master of thinking outside the box – OP465
If you have never seen the “Shredding Banksy Painting” then perhaps now is the time. It’s about 2 minutes long. So what is Banksy Rewound all about? It’s quite simple really. I think the man is a genius. Off the wall, or should that be “On the wall”? But nevertheless, a genius, and master of thinking outside the box.
Banksy is a mysterious character that paints the most amazing, funny, thought provoking and downright cheeky murals, but with a graffiti air about them. This particular painting, which is small compared to his other works, is big on shock, publicity grabbing, self promotion and dare I say it, making money. Girl with a balloon was auctioned by Sothebys for a staggering $1, 400, 000 . On completion of the auction a shredder built into the picture frame was activated and the painting began to shred. It jammed three quarters of the way through, but that just added to the intrigue and romance of the entire process.
Seconds after the fall of the hammer “Girl with a balloon” began to shred. Right before the very people who had been bidding for the work.
So I imagined how Girl with a Balloon would look like if the painting could have been rewound into it’s frame. Here it is – “Banksy Rewound” – my tribute to the mystery man of thinking out the box.
Banksy Rewound is an Oil Painting on canvas, done with heart and soul and measures 305 x 406 mm or 12 x 16 inches.
If none of the above are your answer to “which one do you love?” then perhaps you have a favourite image or idea that you would like captured on canvas. If so contact me on bruceA684@gmail.com and together we’ll turn the dream into reality.
