      It's a "well known" "poster problem".

      Time for another up date on the basement wall paintings..

       

      One aspect of my indoor layout was including ome sort of military

      base..  The one I designed has 2 separate sidings..  One siding

      is for boxcar loads to be delivered to a warehouse..  The second

      siding is to be for rolling stock loading and unloading..  The warehouse

      siding (left side) and buildings are kind of straight forward.    The rolling

      stock siding (right side) is a bit different, as it goes back into the base to

      an area around the motor pool, where the actual loading area is...

       

       

      As we look over the rolling stock siding, we see another area of the base

      where some barracks are located, along with the headquarters building..

      To the right of the Headquarters building is the parade grounds..

      Behind the HQ building is the gym, with the base pool, tennis courts

      and a ball field..

       

       

      Just past the fence for the base was a nice stream that meandered close

      to the base..  It also provided a nice separation from the Industry you

      can see a corner of to the right..

       

       

      The picture below is just closer shot of the stream..

       

       

      And, that takes care of the latest update of the  basement wall..

      Hopefully, more to come later...

      Very nice, Andy.   Love the old "temporary" WWII barracks buildings pictured. (I came LONG after that war, but did get to spend more than a few nights in that type of building. I guess they're all gone now, so they really were temporary!)

      That looks good and I think making the door a stream is a great idea.

      Thanks, Bruce...   I spent a few months in those style barracks myself...   Mostly thru Basic training and tech school.. 

      Basic training was at Lackland AFB, TX...  When my son graduated basic there in May 2009, we went down for his graduation.. 

      There were still some barrack buildings like that around..

      WOW. Every new scene you post is just amazing. I love how the track continues into the painting.

      I had to do a double take on that track!  The base looks real enough to elicit a smile about memories as a Naval reservist mobilizing through various Army bases.

      Looks like some more was added since the OPs Session.  Certainly nice work!

      Temporary seems to be a "flexible" term.

      Beautiful work Andy.

      I sure did a double take when I saw the barracks buildings, spent some time in them myself, Basic and Tech school in 64.

      Some of them were still there in late 2010 when we were there for a reunion.

         At least she didn't make the river rocks look like potatoes. I mean that as a compliment; I've had to break several students of that habit!

       

         Potato rocks might be good for museums (http://www.potatorock.com/html/museum.html) but not so much in paintings.

      Didn't think much of it when I posted about being at Lackland AFB, TX, then mentioning

      that I was back there in 2009 for my sons graduation from Basic Training..  I just realize that

      he graduated exactly 40 years from my graduation..  Only difference is, he graduated in May 2009,

      I graduated in December, 1969..

       

      Appreciate all the comments, folks...  I do pass them on to my painter...

       

      Derailed, if you look back further, you will see the other door that was painted with a river..

       

      John, Yes, I understand the compliment...  Web site is cool...
