Blank Canvas #78 – Boston & Maine - Paintings

Creator not accepting inquiries

Originally a continuous inland route between Boston and Portland, Maine, the Boston and Maine Railroad (B&M) eventually linked hundreds of cities and towns in more than six states to carry paper, coal, and grain-mill products. This depiction of a vintage Boston and Maine 55-ton hopper was fabricated with hardwood and the rusted effects were created with aerosol and acrylic paint.

I work largely in spray paint. My current series, Blank Canvas is a collection of paintings that brings the logos, weathering and abstract art of graffiti on freight trains into close focus.
