Last Year's Snow

We've had a lack of snow to paint, so far, this year. This painting, Turtle Creek Trestle– Winter, 16x20, oil on canvas, is based on photos taken in December of 2010.

A 1920's vintage trestle that is still in use on the Indiana & Ohio Railway line between Mason and Lebanon, Ohio. Originally built by the Cincinnati, Lebanon & Northern Railroad during the 1880's, this route was controlled, then acquired by the Pennsylvania RR, until selling it to I&ORY in the 1980's. The Turtle Creek Scenic Railway out of Lebanon currently operates day trips over this line.
