Description of Misty morning on the Narrow Gauge
This is a painting that I did following a Jerry Yarnell study session. Monochromatic paintings are always a bit more challenging for me, but I love the eery atmosphere they can create. My grandsons all like “trains” so I always have an audience and demand!
I used a local treasure, the “Juniper”, as a model. This locomotive, also known and CP #60, was originally built in 1868 and was used to represent the Central Pacific Railroad at Promentory Summit in Northern Utah for the Golden Spike Celebration wherein east met west with the First Transcontinental Railroad. The replica we have today was built in 1979.
