Railroad Town – Mercantile

Many years ago I created a 3d train in Tinkercad. My goal was to create all the buildings I needed for a Railroad town. (Yes, I am slow featuring the buildings here.) My Railroad Town, which I named Sunrise, has a Train Station, Saloon, Bank and other buildings. The citizens of this town would need a place to buy and sell goods; the Railroad Town Mercantile was created. Yes, I could have name in General Store, but I wanted a more sophisticated name.

This building was created in Tinkercad, which is a easy to use 3D modeling program which it free to use. It is own by Autodesk and it is their apparent their goal it to teach students how to design. This is the link to view the 3d Railroad Town Mercantile building in Tinkercad.

There is no inside of the building. I created items for placement on the porch; barrels, flour bags, crates of apples and oranges, and fabric rolls.

Note the hinge and lock on the back door. If these items were normal size and 3d printed, they would actually function.

Its finally here! 18 months later and I have added a new drawing to my Coloring Page . It is available for anyone to download and color. It was so much fun to create and color this drawing. I think I will need to create more drawings. I already have an idea for the next one. This drawing was created and colored using Corel Draw.

Here are a few examples how I colored the drawing. Be creative, color them to you desires. Mostly, have fun.

Wichita Art Museum

The Wichita Art Museum exhibits work honoring women artists, pre-Columbian artifacts, glass works, and other sculptures and paintings. I found Kay Sekimachi’s Leaf Bowl a fascinating work of art.

The artist of the glass painting did a remarkable job capturing the light reflections.

The museum had some beautiful glass works.

One of the most interesting items in the museum was the history of the Corning Glass Works. Most of us have use Corning dishes. They made the first light bulb for Thomas Edison.

The blown glass exhibit featuring Richard Marquis was entertaining. His glass work was unique, humorous and creative.

Finally, the sculpture titled “Bed” by Lloyd Glasson was amazing.
