The fabulous Ford Thunderbird, 1959 in Vegas Turquoise with chrome trim and whitewall tyres is a subject I had long wanted to paint. The perfect backdrop for this work had presented itself during a visit to Key West, Florida in 2017. From the many elegant Key West villas I chose that of the La Mer Hotel. A fabulous building dating back to 1906 with magnificent sea-views, surrounded by tropical palm trees. A perfect setting for this classic American jewel - The Thunderbird - Don Packwood
