En Plein Air: A Crisscross of Railroad Overheads (Oil, 9 x 12)

I was lucky today. The rain didn't start to pour till I was back home. Before i left home I knew it was going to be overcast and felt it might fit better the scene I was about to paint. It was an impoverished area which I noticed on my way to the headquarters of the River Fund organization which I was invited to paint the other day. I was told that one of the two railroad was to Long Island Railroad and the other was A Train.

I set up with my back to the fence of Richmond Hill Library. There are actually three streets intersect each other under the overheads. They are Lefferts Blvd., Baggage St. (funny name, isn't it?), and Jamaica Ave.
