Today's painting is a detail of CSX Locomotive No. 9 at the Ford River Rouge Plant. I got some great shots yesterday before the clouds rolled in. I will be starting a large painting of the drive wheels of this locomotive today.

Powerful image, reminds me of constructivist or futurist images. Its kind of alluding to a nostalgia for a 50s version of a heroic future that kind of never happened. Our trains, cars and spacecraft dont look as sexy as they should.
