Series-Locomotive-UP 4343

"UP 4343"
oil on panel, 2013
5" x 7" (12.7cm x 17.78cm)

This painting marks the beginning of my new Locomotive Series available on DAILY PAINTWORKS.

Here are a couple of UP's in the light-filled late afternoon chugging through the Alameda Corridor.
The 4343 displays the earlier graphics before Union Pacific changed to the flag.
The characteristic cad red lightening bolt still remains.
So cool.(1)234

*Has anyone else noticed problems with the way images are now showing up on Blogger?
I drafted this post a couple weeks ago and noticed a decidedly poor image that uploaded to Blogger.
It used to be I had no problem with the image I photographed, adjusted when needed, and uploaded.
In fact it became routine.
I have adjusted this one three times, uploading different versions, and it still looks washed out and the colors are off, I still can't get a good QUALITY image!
I have some other posts drafted and they all look the same.

**I have updated this post with a 'fixed' photo. This is how it should have looked in the first place.


  1. Ola Amigo!
    David, I went to Daily Paintworks to see this work and I did notice the difference. Daily Paintworks much better light?
    Love your work buddy! I wouldn't have noticed anything unless you mentioned the difference.
    Paint on and on and on and on !
    Oh, I am on Face Book. Not a clue what I am doing there. But so far it is interesting experience.
    Take care!

  2. Hey Michael,
    I don't know what's going on, but it is a bigger problem than just light. Just to get the image to appear this way on Google blogger I had to adjust it waaaaay dark, and the resolution too is really bad. Is it Google problem? Don't know. I do know uploading to this blog is the only place I am having this trouble.

    I take it you are not having the same issues on your blog.

    Anyway, thanks for your visit as always.

    Facebook huh? I'm still reluctant...

    Keep painting...
