So this was cool. I recently posted up on Instagram a picture I took in Hayes of the sun setting in the West lighting up the tracks in a golden glow. Just a quick snap taken on my phone it looked like this.

It reminded me in style of work by the artist Dan Kichener and I said as much on my post. Then something rather wonderful happened – he commented that he’d like to ‘speed paint’ this picture. I sent him the file and sure enough a couple of days later and after only a actual hours work he posted this image on his Facebook and Instagram. Needless to say I love it. That a picture I took to pass the time while waiting for my bus at Hayes station resulted in this is kind of pretty special. Nice one Dan!
