Hi, as most of you, if not all actually won't know but I'm a fine art painter, a Masters Degree in Fine Art. Some of those skills I use in playfield & cabinet touch-up's but oil on canvas is what I do.
I've just completed a 5' x 5' oil on canvas over wooden stretcher painting, which I'll keep for decor or will sell. This piece is up for sale on Saatchi art at a price but that price is double what it'll be for sale for here.
This represents 65 - 70 hours of work. My pieces are frequently oil motorsport or oil portraiture.

I will trade the painting & cash towards a Scared Stiff or Addams Family as those are the only 2 machines I really want.

Here's a few pics of it in progress ....

And one of it finished taken yesterday evening in the sunshine.

As it's 5 foot square needless to say it will need a van to move it, I can wrap it in bubblewrap to help but it is something fragile. I've shipped paintings in crate to the USA before, a crate for transport in the UK is probably over-doing it a bit. Any questions or if you do want to view it, do PM me.

Price online at S@tchi is about £4K, but here £1,900.

That looks amazing, the return lane guide looks like it’s bolted to the canvas😎
Ha! Yeah, it's always tough knowing when to stop, I considered adding more shadows but thought it looked fine as is.

I quite liked it looking flat but the guide had to have some shadow or it would have looked like it was directly onto of the playfield so I had to add a "bit" of cast shadow and depth on some stuff like the screws
too.

A New Yearly bump.

One of you must have had a Lottery win / robbed a bank / embezzled millions / sold a Ski Challet / cashed in some life insurance / sold a pin at pinflation prices by now! :p

If it was Paragon, I'd be all over it !!! GLWS
I'm always open for commissions you know! I went with an EM as a first painting, something simple enough and tweaked the colours a touch.

I have been considering a WPC 89/95 playfield piece. If anyone fancies anything, do PM me. :)
Regulars are welcome to have a look at the above one in person so they can see the standard I paint to.
