“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?
