When I was a kid, I remember singing, “I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad…all the live long day.” I hadn’t thought about that song in years! Until recently, when I really was working on a railroad for days on end, as I painted Train Murals for my church’s Kid’s Ministry. After years of worshiping in a school gym, we’ve moved into our own building, and I was asked if I could paint a mural or two to make the children feel as if they’re going on a journey aboard “The Grace Express.” Well, fire up the locomotive and say no more! I spent six and a half weeks getting completely carried away with trains, a train station, railroad tracks on the floors, props, etc. There’s so much, I decided to take you on a video tour before breaking it down into individual blog entries. All aboard!
After seeing this video, be sure to see how these train murals came together, beginning with the Train Station.
