Railroad Festival Evening


Another view of the Vinegar Bend portion of downtown Amory, Mississippi looking in the opposite direction of the previous rainy day painting.  Our county does not have a county fair, but does host an annual event celebrating its railroad heritage every April.  This view is at twilight, when the last rays of the setting sun are artificially preserved well into the night by the huge ferris wheel illuminated with flashing fluorescent and neon tubes that anchors the traveling midway show at the festival.  The evening sky was completed here with the assistance of a can of dark blue spray paint.  The light radiating from the street lights was accomplished by temporarily pasting down a small wad of paper towel before the sky was sprayed in.  Technically, that makes this effort a multi-media painting.  The Coca-Cola ghost mural I painted is visible in this work.
