"ENGINE 6300"











(SOLD)

Hopefully the next series of both my daily posts and canvases will be on trains. The dynamics of what they are and what they mean to us I want to see if I can capture these giants that crisscross our lands regardless of the country. This is a 6"x6" oil painting on gessoed archival clay board mounted on a 2" deep finished wooden box with no framing needed. schwartzart@earthlink.net

I'm going to enjoy watching you paint this series Gerald; there's a romance to trains that makes them a very appealing subject for paintngs. Very nice work on this one.
