Behold the Big Boy Train! This massive train was built in 1941 and weighs 1.2 million pounds and is a 133 foot steam engine. Union Pacific still has it running and it does tours. I was able to see it go by when it came to Texas. It was a lot of fun to see just how big it really is and to hear it chugging down the track with massive amounts of steam coming out. It was a fun challenge to paint and a good memory of that time I took a day to chase a train.

All about the Big Boy


"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
