Steam Train Churning Through the Archway.
About two weeks ago while driving through a neighbouring town, I noticed this life-size, 3-D looking painting on the side of a century old red-brick building that now is home to a cleaning business although at some point, it housed a grocery store (as you can see at the top of the photo).
I love such wall paintings! Artists who envision their pieces and bring them to life in actual or larger size…and sometimes 3-D so that it has you giving it a second glance, when you first think it’s something else….something real and not a painting.
And then I try to imagine what tools they used – scaffolding? – to accomplish their painting vision. Dealing with the weather for one thing. Different requirements compared to working in a studio.
It never ceases to amaze me!
