Thanks for the bump... This time I have a good, solid excuse!! I am slowly recovering after a dramatic infection nearly cost me my already troublesome leg. I have been horizontaL most of the last month and a half, with eleven days in isolation in hospital...
Much better now, so I have begun painting half time again, and the first painting finished was actually railroad related!! "The Fireman's Bucket"

Alright, Troels, great to see you are back.

Sorry to hear about your leg. Sounds like it was very serious. Good to hear you are getting better.

That painting is very, very good. Lots of detail. You did a great job. I like it.

Have a great day.

Rich

Troels, It's really good to see you back. A good painting, and if you don't mind a really awful pun, glad you have your "troublesome leg" but didn't use it to kick that bucket!

Nice work Troels.

I almost lost an arm 10 months ago due to what was a 'simple' infection. Don't fool with your health.

Question - Are your train paintings commission work or 'just for fun' stuff?

Thank you guys!

Bruce, these days I very rarely accept commissions, but rather paint what I love, long for, am in the mood for... hoping of course that they will sell eventually, since this is my full time profession. But the luxury of painting only what I really want to, is invaluable! And I love the mood and athmosphere of steam trains, so once in a while I paint steam stuff :)

Troels,

It's good to see you back at things again with yet another masterpiece.

May you heal quickly and completely!

Bumpsville.

Troels...How is the leg? Well, I hope.

Painting ought to be back in full gear now.

Keep up the great work.

Have a great day.

Thank you for the heartwarming concern guys!

I'm almost fully recovered after an unbelievably speedy healing... both doctor and my trusty nurse have called it miraculous :) So I'm painting at full speed again, and have just stretched a fresh, large (120x190cm/48x76in) canvas, after finishing a handful of smaller works. Great fun as always.

There has been quite a few visitors to the layout recently, mostly Swedish, but also from Germany, UK, Norway and Hungary. The test treatment I used on tracks and wheels in the paper mill area in 2010 is still magically keeping the little shay running slowly and evenly over insulfrog turnouts, while all other engines stutter and die, or remain dead since years already.

I moved a small modeling table and some paint stuff and tools to the train shed a few days ago. Don't expect much though, but at least it is a sign that all is not abandoned :)

Hi Troles, have you ever thought about doing a Troles painting of the layout for sale and also making copies for sale . It seams it's right in you wheel-house. Tom
