John Henry Close-Up Right side
On the left is a close-up (Click to enlarge) of my painting of John Henry. It shows John Henry with his shaker racing the steam drill (the steam drill is on the other side of the canvas).
Behind him a crowd has gathered. Several people in the background hold steels- the steel rod that John Henry is pounding into the solid rock.
The shaker turns the steel after every blow with the sledgehammer.
A family is gathered on the left side to watch.
More on John Henry to come,
