"TH&B DIESELS" - original acrylic painting by Lance Russwurm

thbdieselsoriginalacrylicpaintingbylancerusswurm.jpg

It was inevitable. In the mid fifties, these two GP-9 locomotives replaced the big Hudson steamers. They were called "Torpedo Geeps" because of the tanks on the roof.

In the background is the TH&B Head Office and station in downtown Hamilton. It still exists today as a GO commuter train station. It is a wonderful example of "Streamline Moderne" a sub-type of Art Deco architecture.

I have been an artist/illustrator working out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario for many years. I tend to specialize in historical and mechanical subject  matter, but I also enjoy doing portraits, murals, airbrush jobs or anything else that comes up. I work mostly in acrylics, oils, watercolours, graphite and ink. I can  take a photo if I have to, and can also do a bit of photo-retouching...but, mostly, I do things the traditional way.
