I have posted a photo below.....due to only having one operational leg at present, I am yet to sort out lighting etc. which I think will significantly enhance the colour of Florence...in real life he has got the colour pretty spot on.
However, curious at to opinions. I think this is the first Morgan that Stephano has ever painted-he normally deals mainly with Fiat/Alfa.
I realise it won’t be to everyone’s taste but we here at Headless Manor love it.
If anyone wants details feel free to pm me or look up “thatsmotoringart” on the interweb netlink thingy. No ties/links just v satisfied customer.

Yeah, I can see why you would get that vibe.
At our original meeting with the artist it was actually Lady HB who convinced me that the background worked. And with curtains and fireplace here it does work quite nicely tbh.
Incidentally the headlights and indicators are emphasised with silver foil which seems to help make them stand out a bit imo.

That is a beauty he has the lines perfectly replicated, I always wonder how they manage the wire wheels they must be a nightmare to paint.

A good job, anyone who has ever tried to paint wire wheels will know how hard it is to get the right look.

I like it, it's definitely different from what I would call "photo like artwork"

I had a look at the artists website and the pictures reminded me of a photo I took in a car park in Orta San Giulio.
We had been visiting Isola San Giulio and were walking back through the town when I spotted this cute car and had to take a photo.
Looks like it could be connected to the artist.

That is brilliant. What a fabulous artwork to treasure and to remind you of better days to come once your soundness is recovered and you once more trot up with an even gait.

Hi Gordon - was the 500 in a car park near where the “mini train” ends up near the outskirts of the main shopping part of the town? If so, the studio/shop was just down from there so seems quite possible...and he certainly has a love of the marque based on the website.
Paul - ta muchly (did I detect horsey references there 🤪😳?).
