After school chores put on hold. A boy pretends to be “Rocket” Richard. A train breaks the winter silence and rumbles through the valley. Warm aromas from a farmhouse kitchen await.
One of a series of paintings based on the steam locomotive. The train is the focal point of the composition, but there is still a subtle sports undertone. The background landscape is from the hills and valleys of Southeastern Minnesota. The locomotive was based on the 4-6-2 “Pacific” type steam engine that is still operational at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum.
