A scene from my favourite book created as a personal painting ‘The Day of the Triffids’. I call this ‘Finding Father’. It depicts the two protagonists finding Josselyn’s father dead upon the floor having been killed by the Triffid laying in wait to devour the body. Note the background detail which shows many hidden details from the story such as the portrait of author John Wyndham, Original 1951 cover artwork, a Penguin Classic cover of H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds which was a large inspiration for this book. There is also a painting on the Triffid wallpaper of the Isle of Wight which is a clue to the story’s ending.
