I'm working on some large pieces for my Crested Butte gallery, in preparation for the coming winter season. This is day two on this piece...my biggest canvas yet. Look for the completed piece on http://zthurmondfineart.com in a few days.
Trains and tracks fascinate me. They remind me of my grandfather. He loved trains, and when I was little he had the raddest train set in his basement. He died in 1995, when I was at the perfect adolescent age to completely miss the gravity of death. This is just before dawn on a dead spur next to our house. This one came out blurry no matter how many times i shot it so i gave up and posted it like this.

I am using this blog as a catalyst, to inspire me to paint every day. There are forms, compositions and color juxtapositions everywhere i look, provided that i take the time to do so. So if you see that i haven't posted a painting in several days, leave me a comment deriding me for my laziness and lack of artistic conviction. I have no excuse not to put brush to canvas, regardless of the subject matter around me. I hope you enjoy the results.
