Bridge work has been ongoing for many years as needed repairs and replacements are done over the fast moving waters that join New Hampshire and Maine. We all depend on these critical crossings to get where we want to go. Some inconveniences and longer routes are simply part of living in a seacoast community as residents and tourists depend on the success of these impressive construction projects completed via cooperative arrangements between our two states.

As an artist I am also impressed by the design of the bridges and how they visually create connections from wide expanses of sky and water toward the grounded village communities at the bases. In this painting I have used the arched curve to tower over the village below as work and worship and play continues on daily in the cool shadows. Here’s hoping for a successful bridge-opening this summer as the new Sarah Long Bridge welcomes travelers again.

Lesson learned: Patience in building a strong bridge is paramount.
