    I keep coming back to this piece. It’s whimsical and yet serious. There is so much about it I would not have thought to do and yet it works exceedingly well. Car wheels in the air, told of the ridge line dark, not light with the sun. The train leaving the canvas on the right, and yet it doesn’t lead the eye off.

    In short I love it!
