This is a commission that I just finished for a local couple. They wanted a painting of a former train station in town, but with a train added. The photo they gave me had no train, so I did some searching online and found an old postcard of a neighboring Town’s station that had a train. So I painted that train pulling into the station. I added a couple waiting, imagining maybe it is them. Waiting to get on the train to visit friends in a neighboring town, or maybe going off on a wonderful trip. That’s the exciting part of art…. you can make up your own story. I just provide the initial idea, and your imagination can take over. Thanks to the Mortimer’s for entrusting me with their vision.
