"BNSF 6631 Rain" SOLD
oil on panel, 2011
6" x 6" (15.24cm x 15.24cm)
My fourth painting juried into the 6" Squared Show at the Randy Higbee Gallery. The 3 others here and here and here. If you are in the area it's worth checking out. The show promises to have lots of great art on display and for sale.
The BNSF 6631 near the top of the El Cajon Pass headed to the high desert in Southern California pulling a short string of passenger cars instead of the usual freight cars and cargo containers. Seen here punching out of the mist and into a clearing.
With it's lighter than usual load this train was moving pretty fast and despite it's climb up the steep long grade it rolled around the corner and was gone in a flash, traveling with a sense of urgency.112
