And back to the tracks –

Yes, been busy painting, not blogging or photographing. I saw the light on the railroad sign while working on the painting of the railroad tracks with the Tobin Bridge in the background, and I should have just moved on to it then. Me in my little, quiet spot – an area frequented at night by many teens, has been attracting the attention of the security guards for whatever company is behind the barbed wire fence, Boston’s finest and some guy in a city facilities van. Then there were the prisoners from Suffolk County cleaning up what the teens have left behind. Oh, and not to forget the Jamaican landscaping crew who like my painting too. I thought I found a nice out of the way spot! but here’s the sketch and the beginning of the painting.
