When we first moved to Connecticut, I became fascinated by the multitude of charming covered bridges scattered across the state. I understand the covered bridge craze abounds throughout all of New England. A few years ago, I painted this bridge in the spring before the flowers had a chance to bloom. I always thought the painting lacked “life.” So in this painting I “planted” my own flowers.
The original 10”x15” is an acrylic on 140 pound Arches watercolor paper.
