Grant Station


Oil.    This is a painting of a the historical Grant railroad station to where it has been relocated at Fisherman's Landing Park along the Indian River Lagoon.  I was there early, got some fabulous photos from the pier of the skies and also of fog on the river.  Then as the sun rose and fog lifted the station was lit up and it was a matter of waiting for the shadows to move to the right place.  I actually even waited for the bird to be in the right place, while teaching some fishermen about manual camera settings. 

Obviously the station took some tight lines to finish while everything else was pretty much fly away with the brush.
