Describe your painting:
The Garner Historic Caboose is a depiction of the relocated caboose in Garner, NC that resides along side the historic depot. It is an illustration of life around the depot as the community re-opens post the Covid Pandemic. This piece is painted in acrylic on a 3’ x 4’ board panel, and should inspire people to tour the out doors to enjoy the great sights of the town of Garner. There are also many churches in the areas, as well. Therefore, my artwork includes people touring the historic caboose, perhaps after having left a Sunday worship service and while taking a walk down the street.
What inspired you?
I was inspired to paint this piece in hopes to encourage people to come back into the community, to enjoy some, if not all, of what Garner has to offer.
What is your background as an artist?
My background as an artist is that I have been painting and illustrating from childhood or for well over forty years. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums, such as; acrylics, watercolors, pastels, colored pencils, and pen and inks. I love capturing special moments in time to bring about a pleasant visual experience for viewers of my work.
Do you have a connection to Garner or did you learn anything new about Garner as a result of your painting?
I learned new things about Garner as a result of my painting.
