Train Trestle On The Cumberland
clear

Continuing to paint scenes related to my love of trains brought me to the Cumberland River in Nashville, Tennessee.  The L&N train trestle across the Cumberland River is a drawbridge and was build in 1850. It is still being used today.  You are most likely to see a CSX coal train coming from the coal mines in Kentucky on it's way to Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Do you remember the old country song, "Chattanooga Choo Choo"?

Union Pacific Railroad Art
clear

The great Union Pacific engine was parked in the Radnor Bowl beside a CSX engine. On the third track was a coal car awaiting transport.  These engines and many others may be observed on the many tracks that run through Nashville.  Great grandson, Charlie, is always ready to go "train scouting" just like any other 5 year old boy. Truthfully, I like them too.  I especially enjoy his excitement when he hears the horn of a great diesel and waits for the rumble and roar as the giant machine slowly rolls by.

Still Life Impressionism

While recovering from recent surgery I was gifted with lovely floral arrangements.  While unable to pursue my love of pleinair painting outside during this time, I determined to immortalize the beautiful flowers.
