I began this blog in September of 2009. It was inspired by the Painting a Day movement. Although most of the earlier work posted here is less direct and involved more than one sitting to complete, the idea was similar to the daily painters in that I intended to regularly offer small, affordable oil paintings, mostly of the human figure, that were consistent with and derived from my larger, more thematic work. My intention was to post a new painting every other day, and the project was quite successful. However, I have now turned my attention to commissioned portraiture. I will continue to post both new and older work to the blog. Please come back often, or subscribe to follow this blog at the link below. I look forward to your comments, and please email any questions to email@example.com.
When I was younger, much younger, we all had or wanted a train set.ReplyDelete
I remember those wooden tracks! I then got a train that blew smoke.
The neighbor had a real fancy set up in the basement.
A family friend that was a tool & dye tradesman made a scaled version, track and all.
It ran around his front & backyard and stoped for water and coal!
It would give rides to us.
Trains used to whistle at night and hum us to sleep.
I hear one now as I type this comment!(usually
wed. & fri.)
Charles, your painting reminds me of the fun
and enjoyment trains bring. Thanks for this post!
