A steady drumbeat echoes through the mountains, louder than the roar of
the waterfall that rushes down the ravine through which the pounding sound
bounces. A train is passing in the river’s gorge. On it are travelers filled with
excitement and a sense of adventure that only a ride on the rails can provide.
Creatures of the forest stop to listen and watch while two fishermen cast a line
at the water’s edge. It is a scene melding the majesty of indomitable nature and
the efforts of humankind to tame it. It is also a visualized moment that speaks
to my own sense of wanderlust and is reminiscent of sojourns taken long ago in
Thunder in the Mountains is the first painting in the Stories from the Rails
collection, a series of oils paying homage to the railroading tradition and what
the steam whistle’s call does to the listener’s heart. I hope you will all join me
on this journey as I explore the steel ribbon that connects cities and towns to
each other and the world’s wild spaces to both. “All aboard!” And thank you for
sharing my adventure in art.
