Trains have always fascinated me. There is just something magical and captivating about tons and tons of steel, cargo, and motor, chugging along two iron rails all across the country. The familiar whine of the horn as it plows through crossings, the hisses, clacks, and thumps as it moves on down the line. There is also something special to think that there is typically only 2-3 people on board, responsible for moving, and more importantly stopping, all of that cargo across the country.
I’m sure that technology has changed a lot about the how, why, and when trains move their cargo from place to place, but little can be done to decrease the fascination and grandeur factor that come with seeing trains go by…
This painting is a print of an original that Chris made. I love that artists are able to create prints of beautiful works that they are sure many people would love and appreciate, rather than limiting us to single copies of their creations. This painting is sure to appeal to lovers of trains, landscape paintings, and fine art alike. I really like it.
