XH558 Painting..........
« on: June 27, 2015, 08:45:45 AM »
I am now the proud owner of the original painting (24" x 18") by Mathew Lock(Matlock Art) a well known artist from Bristol of XH558. The painting shows XH558 with Concord in the background(two iconic aircraft)
Mat unfortunately lost his battle with cancer in May of this year he was a massive fan of the Vulcan and was hoping to see her at Yeovilton but it wasn't to be.
I knew Mat from of all things a Status Quo forum and we became good friends and he was just one of the crowd but with a fantastic talent.
His close friends from Bristol were told about me and all things Vulcan and they very kindly sent the picture on canvas to me which I received yesterday. To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement.

Here is some of Mats other work and also the picture I received.....
