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.

Struggling to Find It

Before and After the Struggle sm

Here is a quick look at what happens when I am not happy with the progress of a painting. I start scrubbing out areas and mashing others together looking for something that unifies the separate pieces that are not working well together. And the version on the right is the result. What for me is a resolved image and one that is a keeper. This sunsplashed scene is inspired by a snapshot of a building on the grounds of Strawbery Banke in Portsmouth, NH.
