Man, that is super cool. This makes me think you should drop everything and just paint trains!

I get the feeling that the trainyard is a favorite spot of yours.
I love that the painting is both detailed and abstract at the same time. The combination of subtle cool and warm colors works very well.
You have mentioned that people think that your paintings look old.
I think this one has that quality, which is a good thing.
This makes me long for the days when rail travel was king.

Great train, Bill. I like the thin treatment with your washes and the limited color.

I don't like to pick favorites..
I feel it's limiting.
But this painting has a strong pull on me.
When I click on the image to see more detail, I'm fasinated with your creative expression of this.
You know how to make color work for you, do you use a whip!?

A very strong piece! I love the visual texture, the subtle complementary palette, play of warm and cool gray, line detail and quality of darks that reminds me of an intaglio print.

thanks everyone, I suddenly went thru a little spat of train paintings lately so some here will get their wish, for a time anyway.
