Oil painting of two men working in a locomotive furnace at night. One is shoveling fuel into the oven, and the other is leaning out of the far side of the car. Very dark scene with strong light coming from the furnace. The number "1966," the year the painting was created, is dimly visible painted on the side of the car.
Oil painting landscape with a dirt road leading through grassy, hilly fields, with the Rocky Mountains in the distance and a sky full of dramatic clouds. The foreground also features a magpie in flight. "The Road West" is set at some point along the road from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta.
