Fog Train



This painting is "Fog Train", it is 12 x 16 inches, oil on canvas. I usually don't choose frames like this, but I fell in love with this one. I felt that the frame echos the train tracks, and the black against the grey/tonal palette of the piece makes for a striking presentation.

Last week, I went landscape painting around town with William Wray ( http://williamwray.blogspot.com/ ). We got alot of work done, I'll have to post my recent stuff soon.

Thanks Bill. It goes against my "frame everything in the show the same way" theory. But I really liked it.

Nice work, and the frame is perfect for it.

I agree about the frame, it reminds me of a train track which is perfect for the subject.
