THIS PAINTING IS SOLD BUT YOU TOO CAN COMMISSION MIKE TO PAINT YOUR VERY OWN ORIGINAL OF YOUR FAVOURITE VEHICLE, A SOUND INVESTMENT FROM WHOM MANY REGARD AS BRITAIN’S LEADING TRANSPORT ARTIST. JUST E-MAIL mika@transportartist.co.uk

Every young blood’s dream in post-war austerity England was to own a two-seater sports car preferably a red MG with wire wheels, fold-flat screen, noisy exhaust note and a young lady in the passenger seat!

Sadly not many of us could afford such luxury but here a lucky devil races along a typical winding country road at a heady 60mph in a pre-war MG TA and passes an ancient steam roller and road menders crew trailer, the chances of him meeting another vehicle are slim for in those halcyon days the roads in England were practically deserted.

The original of this painting was in oils on a 20″×30″ board.

A painting like this of your favourite vehicle, British or American, in oils on canvas or board would cost about £1500.

E-mail mike@transportartist .co.uk to commission your own unique work of art by one of Britain’s leading transport artists.

    Your work is full of wonderful nostalgic charm Mike.
    Although I’ve never driven an MG TA, I did have the privilege of steering my Brother-in-Law’s Aveling and Porter roller like the one in your painting along the road for twelve miles. The journey only took two and a half hours! ;-)

    My friend had an early TA years ago but he never let me drive it but given the choice nowadays I’d take the roller, it’s more suited to my reaction times!!
