Bridge Beauty!
I love Stonington and stayed at Boyce's Motel the weekend of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It's so far out there it's like an island. Wonderful!
A friend from Waldoboro told me that the bridge at Bucksport was being replaced. I'm sure I'll like it but the old one was very cool. Like a thrill ride!

Hey Cooper, I wondered if I would see this in your bridge series! I visited the new-and-old Penobscot Narrows bridges last August. It was a unique and beautiful thing to see them side by side like that, and then to ride the elevator up to the observatory and look down at the venerable old from the awesome new. Watching the river traffic and taking in the incredible views from up there is just fantastic!

I like that you painted this with no hint of the new bridge. Beautiful painting, as usual!

Hi Mary,
Thanks for your kind note. The old bridge was the same bridge design as the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington state--the one that shook and twisted itself apart in a slight breeze!

I would like to take that elevator ride. I hear the view up and down the Penobscot is incredible!I was surprised they didn't do something similar with the Zakim Bridge in Boston.

hey mr. dragonette, its awesome to see that ur doing what u love. This bridge painting is wicked sweet. However, if u trully wish to create a masterpiece then i suggest our very own green bridge here in topsham! I Know you could work wonders using the many shades of rust and decay.
p.s. Janeway informed me and my peers of this site.
