Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
Somewhere between Lamy, New Mexico and Chicago, I caught a glimpse of this Conrail diesel in front of a grain silo. The morning light triggered an automatic response in me. My old camcorder came quickly to my eye and I captured just enough information, an electronic sketch, if you will, just enough to provide the basis for today's painting, some sixteen years later.
Interesting shapes, interesting light, and a train to boot. All this in a passing, fleeting second. What more could I want on a sleepy morning on a train bound for adventure.
NOTE! I have a special new WORKSHOP coming up in July. Click HERE for details. I hope you can join us.
