En Plein Air: LIRR at Kew Gardens Station (Oil, 16 x 12)
I painted this sketch this morning standing at the end of the platform of Kew Gardens Station of Long Island Railroad. It was a fine day and very comfortable to be outside. The only disadvantage was when the train passed by on the line closest to the platform. Whenever it came, I had to hold my hat with one hand and the painting board with the other because the wind was so strong that it would blow them away if I didn't.
