Obergefell v. Hodges

On the heels of the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage in June of this year, I worked on this small piece called Second Street, Westward. It depicts several box cars along the tracks just east of the Davis train station.  Whether the object of my subconscious or not, I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I saw a very distinct rainbow show up in the sides of the cars. While a bit muted in the final piece, you'll see the colors still if you look close.  So, I raise a toast to everyone working on the Railroad of Love: here's to Coupling, Uncoupling (my unofficial title for this work)!
