This is an interesting painting. So far ahead of its time. Take note of the pointed skyscrapers. No such structures existed in the world at that time. Also seen is the concept of a double decker suspension bridge, this did not exist in that time either .You will also notice what appears to be a good size commercial airplane (Jet) not yet available at the time of this painting. The truck is heading into the future.

This painting hung in our family home on the living room wall for years. Many were the times that I would lay on the floor and stair up at it imagining hiking deep into the woods, stopping for a drink of water from the creek. The perspective would draw me in and the adventures would begin. To view this properly you must be eight to ten feet away from it.
Simon really appreciated the style and technique of Franz Ritter Van Stuck, Born in Germany 1863, died 1928 His painting below, of “Sounds of Spring” from 1910 was a strong influence on Dad, as he matured, he painted this Homage to him. Simon decided to do the painting in all pallet-knife, produced approximately 1924.
