Mail, Coming and Going

watercolor 
10" x 14"
landscape

I saw these mail boxes this summer and I thought...with everyone using e-mail, there are less people taking the time to send a card or write a letter.  So I added a few letters that I wrote and I suggest that you take the time and write someone a REAL letter.  You will be glad you did and they will love it even more.

My dad worked at Inland Steel here in Indiana like ...forever.  He worked in the transportation department.  He frequently talked about these train cars.  I thought they were unique and fascinating. 

My dad has long passed away, but the thought of these train cars stayed with me.  I have been on a quest to find one to photograph and paint for years....finally I have found one.  Here is a shared memory.  This car is heading into Illinois to make steel.  Industry lives on.

When I just posted the last post I realized I already posted that photo of my journal page.  But I liked the copy so I kept it on my blog.  I am adding this next painting...this is a local scene that I see daily...  love this area here in Indiana.  There is so much subject matter everywhere.  I call it my artist paradise.
