Choo-Choo 02


One of the carriages has been added, and two more will follow. The original train carriages were horse-drawn carriages that were refitted with railroad wheels.

This is the DeWitt Clinton locomotive, circa 1830.

Trying to work with an accordion-folded sketchbook in a scanner and getting a flat scan is beyond my capabilities. Skewed, distorted, poorly lighted photos will be taken in the future.

I love your choo-choo series, Jenny! Now I only want to read a little story along with it...so how about it? Who knows, you might then even publish it after, it will be great!

Trains are one of my favorite things. I love your thoughtful style. Beautiful with a good sense of whimsy.

Jenny!!! I love the additional carriage ... this is (so far) my favorite from your work.

*the bunnies in the foreground -> they are excellent details. They enrich the picture with additional character.
