“WAMX 3535″, 30″x40″x1.5”, acrylic on canvas.
I’ve had folks ask me in the past about painting other vehicles. One that I’ve wanted to paint for a long time is a train. So many of us have fond memories of these powerful machines crossing over our roads or alongside the highway. My own son adored trains as a small boy. So much so that we made a day of booking a steam train ride, making him a cardboard train costume for Halloween, and filling his toy box with Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends. Trains are a part of whom we are. They bring joy whenever we hear the whistle.
This fabulous yellow lady was parked in a train yard in Austin. She was a challenge to paint as there were no reflective surfaces, but rust and worn metal. I enjoyed bringing her to life and plan on painting more trains in the near future. I especially want to create a steam train.
