Last of Long Line
As a kid I always watched the train go by and waited for the caboose. It was the end and looked so cool. Most trains today have engines at both ends. This caboose is in Old Town in Sacramento and kids have birthday parties there. I was painting in Old Town and quickly sketched and painted the scene as the caboose was being decorated with crepe streamers and signs for a party. A truck parked right in front so I really worked from my sketch. It was a beautiful spring morning.
