Once upon a time the railroads had utility shacks along the rails. You may still see them. This one is unique and I have never seen one like this. It looks very sturdy, sports an aging color of blue and may have been a base for workers who were instrumental in keeping the rails intact and the trains moving during the days of steam. Who knows, maybe this was a temporary “overnight home” for some lucky railroad employees also. Ink and watercolor.

While on the internet, I came across an image of a quiet neighborhood with a huge church at the end of the street. It is somewhere in Europe. I liked the neat look of the row of homes and was struck by the huge church in the background so I painted the scene. Seemed odd for the church to be so close to the homes but close it is. Even though it is a sunny day, the bare trees behind the structures let us know its winter time. Watercolor.

Once in a while, I play with drawing faces. Doing portraits where your drawing actually looks like the person you are drawing is difficult. Caricatures are a little different—they should be humorous which allows for a lot of freedom. If a couple of features of a person’s face are there, a funny face is easier to do. People shown here are: Jay Leno, Willie Nelson, Jim Carrey, and David Letterman.
