Two Tracks

Two Tracks

Oil on birch panel, 2010, 4"x 5"


Todays painting is a 3-D construction from an image taken by O. Winston Link who shot the last years of steam powered trains especially those used in the eastern part of the U.S. This is from 1955 in North Carolina, the Abington line. This was a black and white photo that I re-imagined in color.

Kinda profound. I like the two paths converging on that sharp corner. And I have always liked that type of sparing use of color that is almost black&white, with pops of color like you have in the sky. Makes it not just another remote country landscape. Like it!

Thanks Colleen, I was looking for something that would work on my construction and this image seemed to fit really nice. The two panels with the two tracks taking different paths I thought might work on a couple different levels
