The Railroad Play House

The Railroad Play House
Oil on linen panel

2nd painting of the day Saturday.  Painting up in Naples with my friend Carolyn Counnas and members of the organization SCAPE (whose goals are to have exhibitions to help raise money to protect open spaces, to increase public awareness of environmental and conservation issues, to promote camaraderie and provide education for artists).   
Sometimes getting the first painting done opens me up to be more free with the second...especially if I have a limited time:-)
This building, I learned, used to be a playhouse belonging to the girls who lived on this property in Naples on the Gaviota Coast before it burned down.   I don't know if it was right by the railroad back when it was built...would have made me a little nervous Nelly as a mom for sure...


  1. Delightful painting.
    My son loves railroads so much hopes to soon be working for one. This after going to Bennington College where the arts are tops. This was a nice image for me to see tom day. Thank you.
