Golden Spike Triptych

Posting some older items, to catch up with what I’m working on now!

Item Data:
– Type: Acrylic painting on canvas
– Date made: August 2011
– Pattern: used photos of each engine for accuracy
– Fabric: canvas
– Trim: n/a
– Time to finish: several days
– Notes: The engines are painted using photographs of the original engines that participated in the golden spike ceremony (completing the Transcontinental Railroad using the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads) on May 10, 1869 – I edited out the people to focus on the beautiful locomotives (that were painted colorfully originally!).

Most sincerely yours,
~ Sarah
