About The Artwork

"In 1998 we were having a conversation, between me and another friend, about World War 2. We had landed in the Philippines, so we hitchhiked a ride trying to get to Manila. So, we got to an intersection, and suddenly it was getting dark and there were no more cars, no more trucks. So we were isolated and lost in this forest, and there was a deep jungle, not a lot thicker than the painting. So, we huddled together, and all these weird noises through the night, finally dawn came and a truck picked us up and took us into Manila. But the memories of that night in the forest was very strong and I remember it today, so I painted the painting. I left out a lot of the trees because they’d be nothing but leaves otherwise. I did it oil on canvas, its 24 x 18." - Vernon E. Finney Watch the video in which Vernon explains his artwork, on our website: This painting comes with the frame shown in the 2nd photograph for this artwork, here on Saatchi.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
