This is the Windsor Junction Train Station outside Bedford Nova Scotia as it appeared in mid-summer just before it was demolished in late August 1984. George Orwell would not have approved. It was offered for sale for $1.00 as long as the buyers would remove it off the property...unfortunately there were no takers. A lot of people would have traveled those tracks on their way to the Maritimes and two world wars.
This was the second time that I painted this characteristic structure. I painted #0137 "Windsor Junction, Nova Scotia". I was intrigued by the contrast between old and new. We attended the church across the road. I took several pictures and those images plus the feelings of the moment are what the painting is based on.
I would have painted this in the basement guest room of our home at 167 Lockview Road, Fall River, Nova Scotia. I was painting high realism in oils at the time.
