Another fun adventure during the Midway Art Association’s Plein Air contest 2007. It was a hot afternoon as I sat in the shade of the Heber Valley Railroad Station Depot’s trees. One of the conductors came to see which of his engines & trains I had decided to paint. We had a lovely chat. Wish I could remember his name J. I even called later to see if I could take it down for him to see. He was very interested in seeing the final product. I had no idea how many conductors the Railroad has. Maybe we’ll meet again one of these days.
The builder enjoyed this painting in his room for quite a while. He was the inspiration for painting trains. His fascination about them was infectious and I knew I had to find out more about them through painting. Now we’re honored to have in hanging in Steve & Lesa’s home.
