February 15 - The Red Cars, Los Angeles Streetcars

"The Red Cars" On location at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, I painted this Red Line street car today. The Red Cars have an interesting history in Los Angeles, the streetcars from Pacific Electric that serviced the city until bought out and retired by... yes, the oil companies. That's why Los Angeles has auto freeway gridlock today instead of an efficient electric streetcar system! Orginal oil on rigid canvas, 9 x 12 inches. $300
