TONY SMITH "THE FOX BOA" ORIGINAL OIL ON CANVAS. This stunning oil painting is the artist's original work. The ORIGINAL OIL ON BOARD. Smith is well knw for his F1 and motor car paintings and prints, but here is a very rare original oil painting in his pre-publication days. From when he was unknown. He became passionate about motor racing in the mid forties at a time when there was no racing, so all his research was developed from books about the pre-war period of motor sport. His first major journey took him from Birmingham to Silverstone for the 1948 Grand Prix ! His subjects have ranged from portrait painting & drawing planes, Trains and military scenes, but it is the challenge of capturing speed in motor racing that occupies most of his time. His collaboration with Washington Green and the Halcyon Gallery began in 1987 and since then he has produced many limited edition prints. The painting on offer here was a private commission for a long time friend of Smith's, the singer songwriter Shirley Kent. Shirley Kent has also signed the reverse of the painting (see images) This is a very rare original signature by hand from one of the most collectible artists of the late 60s. As founder member of THE GHOST, THE GHOST was formed by singer/guitarist Paul Eastment (formerly of Velvett Fogg) in Birmingham during 1969. Drummer Charlie Grima was formerly with the Wellington Kitch Jump Band. The original name for the band was "Holy Ghost" but was soon shortened in order to avoid negative publicity. Singer/songwriter Shirley Kent joined the line up and they started recording an album in 1969 with a single being released from it entitled When You're Dead. The single and the resulting album that came out in early 1970 on the Gemini Records label. The Ghost have an amazing sound that blows similar acts like The Doors away. Quality progressive rock, with a very strong folk influence that was probably due to Shirley Kent's involvement. A second Ghost single was released later in 1970 but Shirley Kent left the group soon after to start a solo career. The remaining members continued after changing the band's name to Resurrection but later split up with no further recordings being released. Charlie Grima went on to join Roy Wood's chart-topping group Wizzard (see The Move) and later embarked on an acting career. Former Ghost members Paul Eastment and Terry Guy also appeared on Shirley Kent's solo album that was released in 1975. Danny MacGuire died in 1998.
