Abandoned Shed with Wooden Railroad Reefers in the Rear

While cleaning my studio, I came across a 35mm slide of a watercolor I had created back in the year 2000.  I managed to scan it into my hard drive and post it here.  The abandoned shed, covered with faux-brick tar paper, belonged to my deceased Uncle George in rural Jackson, Missouri.  I added the 7-up sign to give it some pop.  The wooden reefer parked in rear I also added–there were no railroad tracks running across his farm.

The sun is up late this afternoon, so I think I’m going to go out and begin another train composition.  I have one already in progress, but believe I’ll wait until after dark and work on it in the studio.  The sunlight is too good to waste (I wasted plenty of it this morning, cleaning my studio!)

Perhaps I’ll have some good news to post this evening.  Thank you for reading.
