I'm rather excited about this painting. For those of you who can't tell, it's a painting of a railroad car wheel and shock absorber. I've been intrigued by some paintings I saw in an art mag some years ago where the subject matter was industrial "stuff." So finally, last summer, I had the time and the inclination to follow my muse, and the result is what you see here. The REALLY exciting part is that I entered it into a local art gallery for entry into a juried show they'll have in May and it made it! This is a first for me, so I'm happy and excited and don't really care if I win anything, just being "in the show" is good enough.
