Lilies That Float
17 x 23 Unframed
To capture the essence of the flower petals, I try to convey the fresh, soft and bright qualities of most flowers. The newspaper had a story with photos stating that a family had donated their collection of water lilies to the park department, and it was only a few blocks from where we were painting. It was my first chance to see them in living form – a new challenge.
Engine and Engineer
Framed 20 x 27
In my youth riding trains was the best choice for travel. Going by car on dirt roads, usually muddy, was not great. However, there were many hours spent waiting for trains to arrive, affording many hours to watch the handling of the engines as they maneuvered equipment about the train yards. In this same cab space with the engineer pictured here, there would be a fireman who fed the flames by shoveling coal from the coal car which was part of the engine, essential to produce the steam to propel the engine and the train.
