"2 MINUTES TO POST TIME"

"2 MINUTES TO POST TIME" was my 2015 Artprize entry. It was created after I painted over a portrait of Steven Hawking which I wasn't quite happy with. This painting, although fun, garnered very little interest, and quite frankly, I didn't have my heart in it although it was one of the most time consuming works I've done. I based it on an imaginary horse race which took place in County Down Ireland in 1928 entitled the "Mixed Breed Cup" from an article in the Belfast times.
