Artist paints Mercedes-Benz in Halifax dealership
Mercedes-Benz Canada of Toronto has begun an initiative in association with Canadian painter Tom Forrestall. During the initiative, Forrestall will paint his own 1980 Mercedes-Benz 300 SD with a nature scene to be called "A Car for All Seasons." The artwork will depict the four seasons blending into each other. The work will be done in the Mercedes-Benz dealership in Halifax where Forrestall has had the car serviced since he bought it 33 years ago, where visitors to the dealership can observe his progress.
"Mercedes-Benz has a long, established tradition of introducing eye-catching, timeless designs, and the 1980 300 SD is certainly a prime example of this considering it still has an unmistakable road presence to this day," said Tim Reuss, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada. "Tom Forrestall is an incredibly talented painter with a unique perspective, inimitable style and celebrated technique. We are thrilled that his Mercedes-Benz and [friend Dr. Mary O'Rega] were such important catalysts for this creative project, and look forward to officially unveiling his greatly anticipated Car for All Seasons and sharing it with Canadians from coast-to-coast when it is complete."
