Amazing, love it.
My favorite. I love the color and the surface energy. Wonderful work.
Beautiful color, light and atmosphere
I wouldn't watch this painting without having a cup of hot coffee on my hand..it's really enjoy to cheers this momment..the softness of the colors..the spontanous stroke..there's a less word to describe how beautiful my life is while having my favourite drink,i can refress my both eyes in viewing a great and beautiful painting from a true master.Fantastic!!
Your control of subtle shifts in tone and colour is admirable.
The overall shape and mood-fantastic. Your marks applied to the finishing phase are so controlled and methodically placed.
I think this is symbolic of you and your artistry. Strong with direction.(but where's the freights?) I guess that would be us.Merry Christmas to all! Ho-ho-ho!
It definitely has a Russian feel to it... like that train is loading up a new shipment of soviet prisoners for the gulag. This one is a gem!
Powerful image, this one just grabbed a hold of my interest right away. Masterful!
This is a great piece, Bill. Railroads continue to be a source of inspiration for me as well.
Beautiful color palette and strong simple composition to match the subject. Love your work and thanks for the blog comments as you go. Free lessons for the rest of us. Are your oil paintings done in the studio while using acrylic outside? This is Williams, Arizona right?

Hey Jose, I can't get into your blog.
thanks Connie and Marcos!
This is tremendous color! This piece says POWER... in form and application.Nice!
Hi William, havent stopped by in a while...this is great...I like the stong tones and subdued colour!
I always love how even the subtlest hints of sunlight glinting off the metal can enhance the realistic nature of a piece. Way to nail that while keeping the minimalist thing.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Love it!! I Feel like hopping on a train now - even if it's not going anywhere.
Hello William, brave, bravismo, I like color and texture, more acrylic texture.Always it is interesting test with other techniques.Englis sorry,Regards.Concha.
Great color and abstraction/impression of your subject. Your paint marks are fab. as usual. I always visit you for inspiration.
William, you know I visit often (happily) but comment little (lazy?). This old lyric sprang to mind -"He feels the piston scraping --steam breaking on his brow --old Charlie stole the handle andthe train won't stop going --no way to slow down." Locomotive Breath indeed. Just great William, beautiful.
Followed your blog for awhile . I recall as a kid looking at an old Ditko 5 page story '59 '60 , and being facinated by the way he drew a crompled old book of matches- he imbued a simple mundane thing with a sense of mystery and wonder . Since then , that ability of an artist is something I appreciate whether in a Hopper Wyeth or film by David Lynch or your own work . Two favorites would be the two shopping cart oils. I think it's also rare when an artist who is perfectly competent and regarded in one area steps out of a box and tries and excells at something completly different . If you'd care to check out my own site - almcluckie.com , i'd be horored and hope to see your work in a show sometime . Best , Al McLuckie
Fazrul-- A very pleasing little scenario for you to relate. thank you.
Perry:Controlled and methodically placed? And I thought they were loose and spontaneous. Perhaps my methods are ingrained enough to come out quickly and you're feeling the years it took for the skills to become innate...
Bill you have to be as patient as a train going up a mountain in this business.
thanks you Tony a the Russian painters
thanks Michael! Happy to grab you.
