The Art of William Gardoski

B&O Autumn - This powerful new piece by William Gardoski captures the glory days of  Baltimore & Ohio steam in West Virginia. With a string of hopper cars in tow, a massive B&O EM-1 Yellowstone uses all its might on an early autumn day in 1953 to get its load of coal to market. Winter will be here before you know it, and coal is still the fuel of choice for many.

Painting is framed in a nice warm wood frame.

Painting size: 18" x 36"
Framed size: 25" x 43"
Medium: Oil on archival canvas
Price: $1,200

  B&O Autumn

Rock in the Field - This enthralling piece by talented aviation and railroad artist William Gardoski captures the waning days of Rock Island passenger service in Iowa. Depicted is a short passenger consist powered by a pair of aging and decrepit E8s traveling through some Iowa corn and wheat fields near Grinnell. It's a hot, dry, mid-July afternoon during the late 1970s, and the clouds are just beginning to look like they might bring some much needed rain for the parched crops. Regrettably they won't provide similar relief for the Rock's dwindling passenger business, which will soon dry up completely and disappear forever. The engines will soon be put out to pasture too, but on this day that spot between a rock and a hard place has turned out to be an idyllic field.

Painting is framed in a modest frame, primarily to protect it during shipping.

Painting size: 15" x 30"
Framed size: 20" x 35"
Medium: Oil on archival canvas
