Artist's Description

The steam shovel is a large steam-powered excavating machine designed for lifting and moving material such as rock and soil. It is the earliest type of power shovel or excavator. They played a major role in public works in the 19th and early 20th century, being key to the construction of railroads. (Wikipedia) I found this piece sitting in the Orange Empire Railroad Museum. It's a massive conglomeration, and would never be thought of as sporty! I worked the photograph into a Pen and Ink style finish. The decay and rust broke down (pun intended) real well as textures and patterns. Almost romantically....

About Glenn McCarthy Art and Photography

Glenn McCarthy Art and Photography

Welcome to Glenn McCarthy Art and Photography. I stepped into the business of art in 1989 as an owner and operator of three art galleries. Today I focus my efforts as a visual recorder and instigator of the imagination. I strive to create a lasting impression to the observer! It cannot be found in one style, theme, or stereotype ... but in a variety of scenes and venues. Perhaps we need to pause a bit longer and enjoy a hot beverage and a bit of conversation along the way. That seems to be a lost art in a day where everything is moving far too fast.
