West Bound

This was painted for the Valona Invitational Paint Out sponsored by the Epperson Gallery.  I started this painting a couple days before. The light faded before I could wrap it up so I came back out to Port Costa near Crocket to finish it. There was something about the afternoon light on this hill that drew me to paint it. I was maybe 10 feet away from the tracks but when the trains came you could really feel there mass and power. Sergio Lopez and Philippe Gandiol were painting street scenes 100 feet from me. Good times!
