Train maintenance

Tried not to spend the morning driving around and not painting. This train was just pullin out of the repair shop. So, I took a few pictures and made an attempt to memorize some of the colors before security showed up. If you're a train lover this location has it all. 8x10 oil on linen panel SOLD

This started out as a really interesting subject. But I think what was interesting to me was the area it self. Wish I had backed up a bit from the subject to show more of the mood, but still fun to paint and as always a learning experience. Along the back of the buildings is a seawall with a 15 foot drop to the water. Part of an old barge docking area for the papermill that use to be in Port ST. Joe Florida. Lots of old huge tractor tires used for bumpers. Old railroad tracks. Very cool place. I'm still pleased at how it turned out, perhaps we will go back there again and ill paint the view 180 from this one.

Ok back to being as serious as i can. I haven't posted anything lately due to the fact I havent painted much. Its been a weird month. But I plan on gettin back at it this week or next , for sure by the week after that. Forgotten Coast Plein Air Paint-out is coming up. I hope to attend some of that. My friend Marty pays me to walk around and talk about how great he is, steal paint tubes from other artists' easels when their not looking and kick their tripods. Just kidding!!! geeze! Martin Figlinski will be participating again this year. Great Artist check him out. Along with many other great artists. Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Scott Powers,(incredible artist) Theodore Tihansky, just a few of the great artists participating in the paint out. Usually when posting I forward the post to my (hopefully still) Girlfriend Carrie and she corrects all my mistakes,,but for some reason shes not talking to me,,so decipher it yaself!
Opened my email this morning and found this, after moppin my bowl of cherrios off the desk and wall, I realised this was a pic of my Girlfriend Carrie. Taken at the Miss Poultry contest in which finalists had to do their impersonation of a rooster,,GOOOoooo Carrie!! I have the feelin I might be hospitalised soon..sigh
