After ten long days and 60 hours of work, I’ve finished this painting for a very special occasion. @thesunsetempire and I will be heading out on July 3rd to see this locomotive, Southern Pacific No. 18, steam up for the first time in over 60 years. I will be presenting this painting to the team of Carson & Colorado Railway volunteers who restored this relic at the Eastern California Museum in Independence, CA, right in the heart of the Owens Valley where these little giants toiled in the scorching sun for half a century.
If you would like to order a painting in this style, I am currently
open for commissions of portraiture, landscapes, critters, and
industrial tech! Inquiries can be sent to WingsAndStringsCommissions@gmail.com
