    Artist Statement

    I happened upon the Daylight 4449 steaming in the predawn light, in Whitefish Montana. The raw power of this steam engine against the moody skies couldn't be passed up.

    I only discovered the significance of seeing this engine in the days following. The Southern Pacific's historic steam locomotive was on a rare cross country excursion from Owosso, Michigan to Portland Oregon following the 2009 train festival, and is billed as The Worlds Most Famous Steam Locomotive.
