Railroad Crossing Look Out for the Cars, 24x24, oil
Just so you know.... I can paint things other than rabbits!
I have always been fascinated with trains. I don't know why. Maybe because my grandfather worked for the railroad, Southern Pacific. I was in Lake Oswego photographing for the Art Council of Lake Oswego Invitational show when this train came right through the center of town. I thought it quite unusual that an upscale community like LO still has a train running across main street.
This painting brings to mind the little ditty we use to recite when we were kids.... "Railroad crossing look out for the cars, can you spell it without any Rs?"..... IT.
