Description A collage of all things CSX. This is a very masculine piece of artwork for rail-fans. It truly shows the colors of the CSX railroad that I see every day here south of Atlanta, Georgia. The massive machinery, that is the railroad, must be seen and felt first hand to appreciate all that it is and does. The ground rumbles when these beauties roll by hauling that which keeps America going. I just love it.This piece of art is a preliminary to what will be my first attempt at abstract art. It will be a four foot square canvas or possibly a series of matrixed one foot canvases; I haven't decided yet. Once worked out the piece can be made much larger but that is to be decided at a later time.I may produce more digital versions, each more abstract than the last, until I finalize the art.
Paul Simone, Fayetteville Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. My so called 'right brain' has been active from the start. However, life got in the way and my 'left brain' won out. I got steered in the direction of electronics first via the US Air Force and later via the American Telephone & Telegraph company. But the GI Bill paid off and I got as much education as I could. One of my degrees is in art. Now that I'm retired I can once again return to my 'right brain' and, through the wonders of computers, allow my 'left brain' to participate in expressing my artistic feelings by using pixels as well as oils, acrylics, watercolors, pen and pencils. I have also taught drawing, oil and acrylic painting among other things. In addition I have studied and practiced photo restoration for over 25 years now. Photoshop has been my program of choice in case you are wondering. I do have a program called 'Painter' but I generally live in Photoshop. Adobe's new sales policies annoy me so I'm looking at a program called GIMP. My other website is at www.glazemaps.com and is designed as a tool for artists; check it out. As of 1-1-2014 I am reviving and converting my cartoon strip 'Hobo Robo' into an adventure series. It will be completely overhauled and illustrated by me. The New Hobo Robo is already far beyond my initial expectations; I create it and I'm amazed each day. Stay tuned. Thanks, Pauljs
