Polar Express Train – Watercolor

PolarTrainClick image to zoom in

This is my watercolor of the French Lick Train that they use for a Polar Express train ride and dinner in French Lick, Indiana. French Lick has a magnificent Inn and the West Baden Hotel that was considered on of the wonders of the world at one time and is absolutely beautiful. I will be at an art show there this weekend.  West Baden was once a hotel for the rich and hollywood famous, and after a complete remodel, should still be considered one of the best. I hope to do more private showings soon, and possibly some travels in the near future. Have a great Christmas and Holidays!

    Happy new Year and best wishes to you and your family. I’ve ridden this little train and visited French Lick many times and West Baden right after the reopening. I love them both and have memories of several New Years vacations spent in the pool at French Lick. Ken and I loved it! Wonderful work of art! Thank you for the reminder.
