|"Monday Morning on H Street" 24x20 oil on panel|
I have been busy getting ready for upcoming small works shows and just finished a seventh small painting which will cover the two shows I am entering. This one is of the George Washington Bridge over the Hudson connecting NYC to New Jersey. It was a pleasure to paint it and I wonder why it is the first time I have done so. I have crossed that bridge easily over a thousand times in my life. First as a child visiting relatives or doing holiday shopping in NY, then as I grew older going to the city with friends and after graduation commuting to work from New Jersey to downtown Manhattan. I vividly remember the views which are beautiful and the bridge itself which is so graceful. I also remember thinking how exciting it was to have the lower level added in 1962. I have the feeling I will be doing more paintings of the GW Bridge!
