Thank you, Dave. I appreciate that... This mural is just under 100 feet long an 3 ft high It was done about 4 feet off the floor to support a wonderfully designed, complex train platform.

Every minute of the project was a thrill. I probably repainted twice over with all the changes I wanted to make.. It was a pleasure to work with the Chief Designer and his Bride who came up with such wonderful ideas for incorporating details that brought it to life.

Thank you Joe. It was a commissioned mural and I am in awe of his vision.. all along the 90 feet of wall space, he would have notes on the infrastructure ( that doubled as scaffolding while I worked) The indicators would show where a canyon would be or in this case a road to "Lost Wages," (Las Vegas) and where tunnels would be going.. all in his head and I only had to make up landscape where villages would be or such.

To Correct the comment below: the car's lights are painted to look like they are on.. There is no switch to turn them on and off. I thought they were controlled like the trains.. Oops. - My bad! *.~

I am going to load more of the pictures on Facebook. This is amazing work.. the car's lights can be turned on and off with a switch. I think I need to get in and paint the tubing that forms the tunnel. He actually strained the granite to get the right color gravel along the train tracks, then covered it with watered down glue to make it stay put. The road to Las Vegas comes out of the tunnel in the back and narrows as it gets farther away. The tiny oasis is for real.. it is where the San Andreas Fault runs through the desert.
