About a year ago I took this image just east of Perth during one of those very hot summer weather patterns. Those afternoon storms brewing to the east. I love the smell of approaching rain after a really hot day. Hoping we get a few in the coming weeks.
A few months ago I received an email from a artist Matt McVeigh asking if he could use an image of mine for reference to a painting he would be painting. I said yes as I thought that would be very cool to see an interpretation of a scene I shot on camera taken and painted by a brush.
Earlier today I had a chance to see what the outcome would be. I was pleasantly surprised by the results and quite taken back that someone would actually use an image of mine to paint in the first place. I like the painting a lot and the added depth by way of the artists brush is very nice.
The Artist is Matt McVeigh. Matt McVeigh does creative art for stage / film and events. Matt is hoping to have an exhibition at the end of the year that will feature his paintings and sculptures, the below image will be featured in the exhibit, so I am quite excited to see this painting in the exhibition. I will post dates and the location of the exhibit when I have more details and wish Matt all the best with his plans this year for his planned exhibition. I would love to see this painting up close and personal …
Cheers Matt …
Below I have included the original photo and the Artists Painting.
