Latest train paintings






Whew! just finished more train paintings for my gallery. they were all painted on hardboard because i ran out of canvas. the good thing about painting on board is that if you are not satisfied with your composition, you can always chop off the sides until it looks right. in one of these three paintings, that was the case. i started on three panels, all sized at 48" x 12". well, it ended up that the last painting didn't feel right, so i cut off the top part on my table saw to get rid of some of the sky.

These are nice. They seem simpler in shapes and strokes then your previous paintings. I had no idea they were 48". I wish I could see them in full-scale.

thanks, LOC! simple shapes, is what you've always taught me to strive for!
