Hot Air Balloons

When these balloons go up on a beautiful sunny morning they are beautiful to watch. They are so low you can hear the pilots yelling to you. Would I like to fly in one? Probably not. I am content to sip on a hot cup of coffee in a chair on solid ground. Ink and watercolor.

When Steam Was King

My painting goes back in time to the days of the steam engine. Here, a passenger train makes a crew change while riders leave and board the train.  Painting was made viewing an old black and white photo. Scene probably was typical of the 1950s. Ink and watercolor.

Amtrak Depot In Davis

The beautiful old railroad depot in Davis, California, is a treat to visit. Updated and well-kept, this depot is very busy and is a stopping point for Amtrak passenger and Capitol Corridor commuter trains. The city of Davis is the home of an acclaimed University and students use bicycles as their choice to get around. Bicycle racks are common at this depot. The area is quiet one minute, then busy with passengers the next, then a freight train will rumble past. I have spent hours sitting around watching people and trains. Ink and watercolor.

Old Santa Fe Station

An old passenger train leaves a small Santa Fe station in the late afternoon. This image was during a time when railroad travel was big. The train is just departing the old station in a quiet town somewhere in the southwest USA. A few people remain as they watch their friends scoot away to their destinations. The guy in the sombrero is sitting there just because he likes to see trains come and go. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
