Kabutoni and the group,
I'm thrilled to meet a fellow artist and enthusiast from Japan. Funny you mention the Enoden Line as it reminds me of the South Shore. If there's anything you would like to know about the South Shore Line from its founding in 1908 onward to today please feel free to ask me. I have personal experience since childhood (1950) and working experience as first art and advertising director in 1984, then after the company's bankruptcy (an entire comedy story in itself) until my return to train service in 1988, promotion to engineman (motorman) in 1991, until my departure for fine art in 1999, and continued association until now and I probably have an answer. It may have humor associated with it, and some sadness as I was in the head-on wreck of 1993. Also personal as I met my wife when she was a regular commuter. That will teach me to say "Thank you" when I collect tickets.
At one time I was friends with the South Shore Line equipment engineer who helped with the new (1981) cars from Nippon Sharyo and further developed my interest in Japan.
I worked in commuter service on the Chicago and North Western from 1970-1971, then Milwaukee Road commuter service from 1972-1982, and I designed the original Metra train service uniform.
As for pointing and calling just this evening the "Lovely Renee'" threatened to have me hospitalized if I keep doing it.
Jeff; In which section should I start a thread with my artwork?
And now back to my easel.
