Each painting in this work includes a poem about the sound of a childhood train as the underpainting. I call the series Echoes because of the ghost-like top layers that allude to history and celebrate the child that was free to explore.

I use healing symbology throughout. Examples are Circles for wholeness, Bear for courage, Rabbit for vulnerability, Tree for stability, Owl for wisdom and Birds for freedom and spirituality.
Ah, the sound of a distant train!
Whistles blow their warning!
Blaring near or fading far; all decided by the wind!
