This piece, an old B&M Railroad Water can was painted for my husband as a special gift. It was begun in a class that I took from Bobbie T, a fun time, and progressed through the next year as time permitted. The design is symbolic of the time that Jerry worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad. The frog is a switchman but he is wearing an engineer's cap. He carries his special railroad watch and switch lantern.
