New Painting – “Meeting of the Minds”

“Meeting of the Minds” 2019; 8” x 10” Watercolor and ink on paper, $120.

This painting was inspired by an old photograph from my father’s collection.  It was always one of my favorites.  Like several of my recent works, it tells a story, yet leaves much to the imagination.  With the faded oxide red hopper car providing the backdrop to their one act play, what is their play’s tale?  Is there a derailment?  hot bearing?  Who are these men?  Obviously, at least some of them are the train crew, but the gentleman on the left, in the suspenders, yard master?
