Pecos Street, Denver

I seem to be drawn (no pun inteneded) to railroad crossing scenes without trains. I'm sure a good psychoanalyst could tell me why. I think it's the starkness. The general dirtiness. Who knows... :)

You like painting places but you don't want the train in it because you won't be on it and you like to travel and see places. This is a 5 x 7 nice little size.

Your work is one of my favorite surprises on the internet. What's the largest canvas you've painted? I'm surprised by how small some of them are -- for some reason I imagine them to be much larger. This one, for instance, seems life-sized in my mind's eye.

Hi Rene. Thanks. I'll stay off the tracks. ;)

Thanks TechnoBabe. I think you are probably correct.

Hi Mrs. L. Nice to meet you. Thanks for the kind words. I think 30" x 40" is probably my largest yet. I do love doing these small knife paintings though. They're so much fun.
