This is a scene on  the corner of Haskell and McKinney Ave in Uptown Dallas and is my second painting on this corner. The trolley is “Rosie” the smallest of the trolley fleet. Rosie is an electric vehicle and holds about 15 riders. In this scene “Rosie doesn’t wait for the traffic behind her and cuts them off, The pick up on the left darted on through the intersection while “Rosie” was honking her horn.

This scene continues my fascination with the trolleys in uptown near my office. The maintainance facility is right across the street and each morning the workers stage up the trolleys for the days departure. Each morning there is a mini traffic jam creating tension. I tried to reflect that tension in this scene. I entered this painting along with “Vanilla Ice Cream and “Loading Up” in the 2011 Texas and Neighbors Regional Exhibition competition.

In this scene the trolley is being over taken by foreign tourist for a ride up the famous Powell street. Almost everyone is carrying a full back pack and no one is talking. The city is bustling with pedestrians moving quickly and quietly down the sidewalks in every direction going who knows where. The majority of the pedestrians have ear phones in their ears listening to music. I find the energy exciting and refreshing. Most of all I am impressed with the friendliness and kindness of the locals and the tourist.  There were artist everywhere, making art. It was a nice trip.

This young San Francisco shopper was desperately trying to cross the street to catch the trolley without loosing her vanilla ice cream or her sweet roll. She actually made it to my surprise.

Day Four, Friday June 4, 2010

June 11, 2010

Day Four  was a blistering hot day. I started early. While scouting the town square, I ran into Nel and Priscilla from the SWS. I found a scene near the square at an art shop with an old blue car parked out front.
