Oil Based paint on masonite panel 48″ x 72″ -September 2015

THE ATTACK
?
Oil based paint on canvas. 48″ x 48″

This was for the black and white show last April. After the “flag issue” began in South Carolina, added the red color to the 2nd National “stainless banner.” There were some other minor changes also from the original post of this painting. The painting depicts a company of the 3rd Confederate Infantry in Cleburne’s Division in an attack during the later weeks of Atlanta Campaign, July and August 1864. This was after Hood took over the Army of Tennessee.

There are other lanscapes that were lost in past times. Some may turn up and if so, will show here.

Here is one that turned up after being buried in a stored portfolio.

Art - Elevator at Daulton - 16 March 1981 -Cropped - Copy
The Frank G. Desmond and Sons Grain Elevator at Daulton – 1981.
It is on the Southern Pacific spur line to Raymond. Painted from memory in 1981, it is no longer there as it was torn down around 1968. The telephone located next to the scales bench was listed as Daulton Station. The tall structure in the back was the original six tanks of wood, built in 1938. Similar elevators are still visible in Madera County. One is the Albonico ranch near Road 30 and Avenue 10, and another is the Valley Feed and Fuel on Gateway between Yosemite and 4th Street in Madera. The six large round tanks, built in the late 1940s, were corrugated steel twenty feet in Diameter.

The second and newer is Reed Tire’s at Ripperdan corner on CA 145, Madera Avenue.

This was painted this year and I passed this location daily on Avenue 7 at Ripperdan for twenty-six years commuting to Firebaugh. I always thought it would disappear before I could paint it.

  1. Wow! Great works of TD, most of which I’d never seen. I think St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Firebaugh was my favorite!

    • Richard, thank you. There was also another of that church I did. Both were for fund raisers for the FHS graduating class, but probably for their junior PROM year that they host and I was advisor for- at that time and year. See you soon as this is now February 2017.

    Tim these painting are wonderful. I remember all the place’s in Pismo. I have eaten at the Splash and have seen all the buildings. Also thanks for the painting of the ranch and old cooks cabin on the ranch. Thanks for capturing the places that mean so much to anyone who lived in Madera or has history in Madera.

    • Richard, thank you. This was painting was raffled for a fundraiser for one of the graduating classes. I did another one, painting, of the St. Joseph’s church. I have not located my photo of it, as the original was done as a gift for Father Craig, who is now in Bakersfield.

    • Susan, Thank you. My apologies for not replying sooner. There are more paintings that I have not put up here. Will change or add some of those soon. Happy New Year.

    My favorites are Kearney Mansion and St. Joseph’s Church.

    • Barbara, …. Thank you for the comment. One of my first watercolors was a house like in TV show Ozzie & Harriett. Yes, in 8th grade 1958 – 1959. I guess I am still doing buildings. I’ll bet you like Pat Hunter too.
