Emily's photograph was with a number of photos given to me for a commission of a cottage. After I had painted the commission, I was so intrigued by the photograph, I had to paint "Emily, 1909".

"Union Station, Portland, Maine, Remembered" circa 1936
A glowing night scene with businessmen arriving after a long day's work and shoppers returning from Boston. All are greeted to fresh falling snow at Portland's Union Station. Portlanders still fondly remember this landmark which was dismantled in 1963. Some research went into this scene. I used a 1920's Reo for the bus, an early 1930's Ford for the smaller taxi and I turned my Grandmother's 1936 Pontiac into the far left taxi. First in the Portland Series.

I was traveling along winding country roads one late winter's afternoon. As the sun was setting off to the right, these barns caught the last rays of the sun. I was able to quickly work up a good sketch with color notes there and bring "Winter Fields" to life later in the studio. The ending to a great day of painting.
