My father loved trains and this is from a postcard he sent my mother when he was on his way to the front lines in WWII. All Aboard! 15" x 22" Prismacolor, Verithin, Inktense, White Gel and an acrylic wash sky with Verithin Pencil overlay. This is loosely modeled after the Grogan postcard that my dad sent my mother at the beginning of WWII. This is The Mercury leaving the Chicago Terminal. New York Central pieced this train together with

I drew this in 1987, almost 30 years ago. This is one of my favorite pieces of work. This is my mother when she was 17. She and some friends where out enjoying a ride to the big city of Lexington, Kentucky. Mom was born in 1911 and started driving before a license was required to drive. she was an artist in her own right. She could sew and make any type of clothing and her chocolate pie was perfect!
