Miniature watercolor - old train - Great Smokey Mountains


This watercolor is 3.25 x 1.35". I photo'd it with USA 1 cent coin, for size comparison.
"Fading Past 0702" - From what I understand, this train no longer runs through Dillsboro, NC. So it's a glimpse of our fading past.
This painting is on it's way to a miniature exhibition in Pennsylvania.
Seems so funny at times how art traverses the world. From conception in NC, to birth in OR, now to PA, and who knows from there. Probably back to OR, unless sold - which would delight me no end. I never know what is better - win an award, or sell your work. Both are an awesome acknowledgement to an artist.
