Jimmie Lee Sudduth was born in 1910 in Fayette County, Alabama. The first painting he recalled painting was the top of tree stump at three years old, while hunting herbs with his mother an Indian "medicine lady". He painted with paint made with earth-ochres, mud and also made color with wild berries, paint rocks, and grasses. He kept his day job in Fayette by working at rural farms, he was a gardener, and a handyman. His first show was in 1972 at the Fayette Art Museum. He was also one of two artists to represent Alabama for the Smithsonian Institution for the Bicentennial Festival of American Folk Art. In 1976, Jimmie Lee appeared on the Today Show which was national TV. Sudduth lived near the railroad tracks in Fayette until his death in 2007.

This painting is a oil on board, signed on the train.
