Spirit of the Train
Images of trains weave in and out of my body of work. I find the whole genre of railroad art very compelling. I was gratified when this painting from 2014, sold recently in Framingham, MA. I did a large series of train and railroad related paintings in 2013-2014. The painting is called Spirit of the Train, oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches.
- Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world. How the wind can create a ripple in a pond, a flock of birds descending on a field, or how sunlight can illuminate the side of a building are small miracles that happen all around us. Instead of seeking out subject matter to paint, I simply pay attention to the nuances in my surroundings. My goal is to turn what may be considered mundane or ordinary into the sublime.
