We took the train to LA and back last week, and I brought some small art supplies, and tried doing a few tiny paintings on the train.

Nothing much great happened, painting-wise.  Ostensibly, one could say I painted 5 little paintings on the lurching train, but I wasn’t happy with anything I did there.

So, I am reworking them, one by one.  This is the first one I completed since returning home.

    how fun is that? i love the idea. i did some pencil sketches in germany on the train — it was difficult to draw, let alone paint – but i love that you did!susan

The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.
