Double retroactive inspiration

A series of blogs about my favourite subject ‘retroactive inspiration’, needs an update!
In an newspaper I saw a beautiful picture of a 60 years old cable cabin, located in Chiatura in Georgia. I looked it up on the internet and there were even more pictures of this amazing 6 kilometre long cable transport, what is still used intensively by the locals.
When I painted my cable cabins in 2003, internet already was a good source to find all kinds of stuff, but this kind of treasures weren’t discovered yet. So, those days I painted the cabins like I thought an old fashioned cabin would look like.
Now I’ve seen these pictures of the cabins in Chiatura I can add a new case to my tag list of retroactive inspirations.
