Vancouver ABFM artist in residence Michael Stockdale at work putting the final touches on this year commissioned official awards painting, “Saturday Lunch at The Old Crow”.

After a few years absence, Vancouver ABFM official artist in residence Michael Stockdale brings his considerable creative talent to the creation of the 2016 official event artwork.

The 12” x 16” framed acrylic painting presented on stretched canvas reflects Stockdale’s intimate knowledge and love of vintage and classic cars.

Titled Saturday Lunch at the Old Crow and featuring Daimler SP250, Daimler 4-seater convertible, Land Rover Series 1 & 2, plus a Matchless Silverhawk motorcycle, the setting is typical of Stockdale’s style to tell a warm human story within the main feature of the painting.

Stockdale’s work has been called a celebration of life. A very personal vision of his surroundings, as well as a primary importance given to colour and composition, which produces dreamlike, whimsical scenes that engage the viewer’s imagination.
