Union Pacific at Dexter 


A reference photo of mine from last summer. This scene is located in Dexter, Missouri. I may paint this scene in the future.

Sparta

Captured this photo on my drive home from picking apples.  This is one of my favorite scenes in Southern Illinois.  The depot once served the Gulf Mobile & Ohio Railroad (GM&O) at Sparta, Illinois. It was also used in the movie, “In The Heat of the Night” with Rod Steiger and Sidney Poitier. It is now an art museum. Not sure about the caboose’s history, but I do like the GM&O logo painted on it. One of these days I am going to paint this scene en plein air!

Farber Depot

This is a photo I had taken in 2004 of the Chicago & Alton Railroad station in Farber, Missouri. The depot has been moved several feet from its original location, but is still close to the tracks. I have also painted a couple of watercolors of this depot and will post those photos at a later date.

Bismarck Station (12 x 16 inches; watercolor)

This watercolor was painted on location back in 2012.  This scene is of the old Missouri Pacific depot at Bismarck, Missouri.  It is no longer used by the railroad (Union Pacific), but is owned by the city.
