I decided to do something other and a page on water color paper, which is what I have done with all the others. In my art group a while back we started creating these altered books. I thought it would be fun to create in it, using this months photo.
Jack might have been a small man, but he had big dreams. Every day he woke early to prepare for his day at work. He took his job very seriously, much more so than the "knuck heads" he worked with. Especially Albert who was his assigned side kick on the street car. In Jacks eyes Albert was a nice enough guy, always smiling and jovial with the passengers, but just lacked structure and discipline to do the job (at least to Jacks standards). Jack may be a street car engineer, but since he was a young boy, he dreamed of riding the rails as a Train Engineer. A big locomotive. Traveling, seeing the country from the engine room of a big black iron beast. As the years passed, he knew this would probably not be in the cards for him, but he still dreamed about it often. He knew Albert and the others thought he was a grouchy old man who took his job way too seriously. Little did they know, that he had dreams too.
This was not the job Jack had dreamt of all this life, but he enjoyed it and he would still be the best at it that he could be at it!
