New Oil Paintings by Artist Chris Jenkins
The Brick Canyon An oil painting of a New Haven Railroad switch Engine.
The afternoon shadows are growing long and this Alco switch engine has finished its work among the warehouses. Oil on Canvas 18 x 24 inches.
Just after sunset, the sky above the Canadian Prairie is full of color. The red glow of the searchlight signal reflects off the corrugated stainless steel tops of the passenger cars. Oil on canvas 11 x 16 inches. Prints are available on Fineartamerica.com.
Never Here Again Oil painting of a railroad boxcar on archival canvas panel.
On a quiet Sunday afternoon, a Rock Island outside braced wood boxcar basks in the late afternoon sun. The car is a free runner, and nearing the end of its service life. The odds that this car will return to this industry track are very small.
Here is a recent photograph of the top of my drawing table, showing some of the projects underway for fall 2017 completion, including a couple of watercolor tests for upcoming oil paintings.
Coming soon........I have several new original railroad oil paintings ready for the fall of 2017. Included will be double headed PRR M-1 Mountains, a set of fast moving Alco FA units leading a GN freight though a super elevated curve, a Burlington E-8 in gleaming stainless and chrome, a New Haven Alco switch engine, and more. I will post them on this page of over the course of the next few months. Check back on this page for the latest!
