Momento Mori

 I first thought of the idea for my new painting seventeen years ago when we were on a visit to the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver.

There was a canoe displayed with one persons lifetime treasures inside and apparently it stands as a kind of memorial for a their life. At the time I resolved that I would try and do something similar only I would swop the canoe for my 1931 Morris Minor!

Over the years that followed I've had several ideas how I could represent my life through objects which remind me of  family and feel I'm getting closer to what I want.

It's not that I think I'm going to die anytime soon, it's just that the Morris will be 90 years old this year and I want to mark that in some way.
