beautiful textures in these acrylic on wood paintings from los angeles-based artist adam normandin. adam is attracted to the beauty and subtle details in things people pass by on a daily basis, and is inspired by old and worn industrial objects. these freight trains are a perfect example. the cars, weathered by non-stop travel for years, possess just the right amounts of unique individuality, rich history and grace that adam seeks to expand on and show us.

    wow! i love that he sees beauty in the freight yards. these have a special resonance with me… my dad was a railroad man. i doubt that he ever perceived anything beautiful in what he saw on the job everyday. luckily someone did. nice work adam!
