Digital Collage - The Last Train


Since I have been spending so much time downtown lately I thought I would swing by the railroad museum. It is located in the old train depot building. As this is a port city they bring in lots of supplies and take out a lot of things. Before we had the big trucks that we now have, trains were how a lot of things were transported across country.

This is a window looking out along the train side of the building. I added some texture by using a young friend's scribbles and a few layers. You can see the different colors the brick has been painted, red green, yellow...

It sure leaves me with thoughts of what must have happened long ago. Fantastic Ms. Elizabeth. Your journal class looks inviting. I have such a hard time "loosning" up when it comes to journals. So I am very envious.

I love this piece. And funny, great minds work alike, I've been chewing on taking a Dina Wakley class. Lori from Sketchbook
