ABOUT THIS ART

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

Note: Each piece in this edition is uniquely hand-embellished by the artist and will vary slightly from piece to piece with different graffiti and markings.

"This piece is part of my ongoing Blank Canvas series. Using spray paint as the medium, the paintings are scale studies combining typography, abstraction and trompe l’oeil. Each painting is different, but most paintings in the series include a railroad logo, elements of graffiti and the natural rust and weathering of steel. This is the 69th painting in that collection.

This painting replicates a section of a Great Northern Railway (GN) boxcar. The now defunct railway company traveled across the northern United States from St. Paul, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington. They used a Rocky Mountain goat as the mascot because their passenger and freight trains traversed through Glacier National Park where these mountain goats are common. In the 1950s, the Great Northern Railway marketing department came up with “Rocky” for the animated goat used in television advertising which ultimately was painted on their rail cars." - Tim Conlon
