Near Jasper Alberta, I shot these trains moving container freight from Asia across Canada to Halifax for shipping to Europe. What a way to go!

About the Optimism of Color Blog

For 365 days, I am posting a photo or piece of art that I have created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.

  1. I agree–it’s certainly colourful, and it’s also a scene that resonates within many who see it. There’s just something about trains that speaks to us.
