Donald Duck - Last Train to Long Jump



I bought the page with the title Christmas for Shacktown. I contacted Patrick to check if this is correct, because I was missing any sign of Christmas and this is what Patrick wrote to me:

I also did a really big, very nice vertical watercolor maybe in the mid-1990s that features an old fashioned train with Donald stuck on the cowcatcher. That was based on a cover idea for an as-yet unpublished long story Shelly and I would like to do called "Last Train to Long Jump". I remember it as one of my very favorite early watercolor pieces....lots of yellows in it. (Patrick Block 9.10.2014)
