Waiting on 33

Today’s blog entry offers a behind-the-scenes look at my 1993 painting of the Louisville & Nashville depot at Englewood, Tennessee.  The title of this painting is “Waiting on 33.”  In this nostalgic scene L1 Class No. 417 is coming off of a redboard on its way to Atlanta as J3 Class No. 1510 looks on.

  1. Al, Thanks for the compliment on my art. As you see it takes quite a few hours to complete. This is how I learned years ago from the illustrators that gave me lessons. Of course I was still working at the time and had to work my art in with family matters.
