A while back, I had asked if anyone knew of any coaster posters available. I recently stumbled upon this website of paintings and prints depicting Kennywood and the Pittsburgh area: http://www.lindabarnicott.com/
Most of the really cool paintings/prints are gone, but it's still worth checking out.

I really like her last painting of the Steel Phantom and Lost Kennywood (and the Phantom Phlyers!). After seeing it up close at Kennywood (in the Lost Kennywood gift shop), I considered buying it sometime in the future.
As for other Kennywood posters, there aren't many sadly, but I was able to pick a Steel Phantom poster up for $1 at CoasterBash back in March. I wish more parks would sell more posters, because I really love putting coaster related things on my walls.

Ha! I was just there and visited her gallery at the mall there. I really wanted the Steel Phantom one, but she had no prints left, just the one on display and you had to buy the $165 frame with it:(.
Life is a roller coaster...enjoy the ride!

Linda's work has become very much in demand. Belmont Babe obtained the print "Come Ride With Me On The Carousel" for me as a gift for me last year.(This is very special to me, as I knew Tony Sacramento,or "Saccy" as we called him.) It turned out to be just about the last one available in the country. She won't tell me what she paid for it, but I imagine it came dearly.
If you see any of Linda's work that you like,scrape up the money and get it. It's already appreciating in value.

There is a local artist here in Pittsburgh that has done some fantastic stenciling of many Pittsburgh scenes and landmarks. There are a few that he has done on Kennywood as well. I think only the Kennywood carousel is featured on his website. I've purchased one depicting Noah's Ark back when you entered through the big blue whale. www.nevinrobinson.com/ne10000.html

Every time I'm at Station Square I browse through Nevin Robinson's works. I've come real close to buying several of them, and once I buy my house (current projected timetable is next summer, pushed back from this summer when my portfolio tanked) probably will...

I am having coaster art created currently. The first piece that is being created is the first drop of the Raven at Holiday World. These will be original oil paintings. The price with a frame should be approximately $ 140.00. You will be able to choose your frame. We also are looking at doing a couple of subscription series of 5 different coasters each. One would be a series on wooden, and the other of steel. If you are interested, e-mail me and I'll send you pictures when I have the first proof. I should have the first proof in 3 weeks or so.
