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.

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.

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!
