This is the painting created today. Yesterday’s painting of the depot reminded me of the old logo of the Great Northern Railway, and how appealing “Rocky” the goat was. I looked through a box of old buttons and found this button pin from 1965. The Great Northern very strongly promoted the message of work safety, and I remember many posters and printed pieces with the message of safety on the job. This is an oil on canvas, 3 inches by 2.5 inches, mounted on wood.
Printed on the button is “Be Safety Wise Stay Alive In ’65″.
