Excellent! I've taken lots of pictures of green bridges (mostly in Oregon I think) with the intention to paint them. But when I think about drawing out the structure I lose my enthusiasm.
I think it's beautiful. I like the dominant dark values.

No, sorry. I looked again. The light values dominate.
Still love it.

You did a great job on this ... very industrial, but with a warm feel - rather inviting feel to it!

Such beautiful sense of depth and movement. You're pulled right into the painting, and yet your eyes wander to the bright light on the side. My god that's fantastic!

Thank you Silvina. I think it's part of my newfound/renewed interest in straight lines!

Thank you Helen. These urban scenes, especially the industrial ones are a funny lot. I'm glad it doesn't come off as cold and mechanical.

Thank you Ambera! I was hoping to capture some of that bright sky feel.

Great job - gotta love those bridges - It is a theme
I've seen it before in your style. Not quite the marshes and scarboro - but large and expansive.

Love this one. Love it, love it! I recognized it immediately, as I travel down to Boston a lot. Your work is SO amazing!

Laurie in Augusta (I met you at the Portland sidewalk art show this summer and babbled about how big a fan I was. Yeah, that was me, the gushy lady who was so excited to meet you!)

Don Thanks. They seem like a funny thing to paint, but I like the dynamics of the structure.
