All Aboard!

12x12 stretched canvas - acrylic
This painting was created for my friend's son, so she could give it to him as a birthday gift. Matthew was turning 4 and absoutley in love with trains. When I began this painting, I found it a little challenging...not sure exactly how I wanted to go about it, I prayed for the vision and skill to move forward. With each brush stroke, it formed and came to life before my eyes. I enjoyed the "track" this project took and when I reached the final destination, I was so happy with the end result. In fact, I think this has become one of my favorite paintings and I have learned a little more about trains along the way! What next???...I have a few things lined up...
