He worked for the Illinois Central Railroad for almost 50 years and knows just about everything there is to know about trains. He is a country boy at heart... he loves the man in black (Johnny Cash), baseball, and most of all his family. Now that he is retired he likes to do a little crafting himself - he paints! I know he will like this colored train image. I like how the neutral/dark background makes those colors really pop. The soft Copic coloring make this look like a watercolor painting.
I wanted to keep this one more masculine with the colors, twine, and buttons. I kept the doily frame - since it isn't too intricate and gives a vintage look to my card. Thanks for having a look - I hope you like it and that you have a beautiful day!
