Oh the joys of fast cars and dabbling with a friend! I thoroughly enjoyed painting this piece as it took me back to the days of being pit crew, with my brothers, for our father and watching him race. I met the owner and racer, Jamie Buckland, of the Caterham shown, in February 2012 while he was visiting Sun Peaks with his partner Julia. After a good day of skiing we met up in the bar and enjoyed a great chat about cars and racing. It was then that Jamie asked about being able to produce a canvas of one of his favourite racing pictures, only with a few modifications and additions. As I see anything as a possibility, we discussed all that he was looking for.
A few months later I was contacted by Julia, who had been with Jamie, myself and my own partner Izzy. She wished to surprise Jamie with the canvas we had discussed, as a birthday gift and was completed in June 2012. As Jamie’s birthday was not until the 7th August, the piece was kept under wraps until after the gift giving. I must say, I was very excited to get it onto the site and two months seemed like a very long time!
