4 Rails


A 9x12 oil on linen board. A favorite spot just north west from the old Monrovia train station. It was a bit overcast so the light was a little dull.

Hey and check out the new issue of the online art mag Bohème:

I think, so long as you keep visiting a trainyard, I'll keep looking at your stuff. Those, and night scenes. I applaud your success in "trespass" art.

I am consitently impressed with the form and light you are able to produce using such a loose technique.

My online copy of the Boheme Magazine just arrived and I see they have published five of your art pieces. They are lovely. I admire your style very much and only wish I could emulate it, but alas, my art skills will never reach that level. Congratulations!

Awesome, Bill. I'm amazed at your output! I can't wait to see your paintings in the flesh later this week ~ I'm thrilled that you're getting the response you want from the public, too.

I usually hate overcast days, but after seeing this I think I love them. This is a beautiful painting, I love the lighting on the train.
