From the Collection of Jim and Geralda Keith. Hill City, Kansas

During the end times of Union Pacific's Plainville Branch, I shot a fall scene just east of Hill City, Kansas.

Originally I painted the scene in soft greens. Jim asked if I would consider repainting the sky in morning colors.

I am glad he did, as it turned out to be much better!
