"Whistle Stop", 16x20 oil painting by Stevie Denny

This was a painting I entered in last week's Centennial Exhibition "One Hundred Years Together"at the Gilbert Music and Arts Fest.  I painted this from a photo I took in Gilbert on November 12, 2011, when the Union Pacific Steam Locomotive 844 stopped in Gilbert as part of the Centennial Celebration.  Just as I was about to snap the photo, a man walked into the picture with his son on his shoulders, waving the American Flag.  I couldn't have planned it any better!
