The mighty EMD SD40-2 Diesel locomotive. of all the EMD dash series the SD40-2 was my favorite with its well proportioned body style and well proportioned design. I did this painting for a series of paintings that I did trying to emulate the POP ART STYLE POLARIZED PAINTINGS from the 1960'S and 1970's. I will post some of results in a later post. The whole essence of what I was trying to do was to create some stunning artworks using an item that would not be usually associated with that style of painting. also using a limited palette of colors made the paint very cohesive and tight. pushing the boundaries of normal painting. the resulting pictures were a view into the future of were I wanted to go with paintings always trying something new in a well established genre. it did not go as well has I had hoped with most people finding it a bit bewildering......?
