Old Arizona Bridge

This old bridge is located north of Snowflake, Arizona. It’s way out in the country and farmers may still haul over it and herds of cows might meander over it still. The Little Colorado River flows beneath the bridge. My illustration was inspired from an illustration done by the late Earl Thollander whose art I totally admire. Ink and watercolor.

Creek Bed And Bridge

Imagine a summer day, mid-afternoon, very hot, no breeze, high creek waters are gone and only a trickle of water remains. This is what it is like where I live. It was actually comfortable where I was sitting when I painted this. Since we have had a very welcomed, rainy winter, I look forward to warmer weather ahead. Ink and watercolor.

A Park In The City

In the middle of New York City there is property known as Central Park. This urban park has lots of trees, huge lawn areas, water features and many trusty old stone bridges as shown here. It is a place for people to enjoy and remove themselves from the hustle and bustle of a busy city. This bridge looks solid and the colorful trees surrounding the stream make for a tranquil setting. Enjoy my Ink and watercolor landscape painting. SOLD

Village Bridge

I really like the view and angle of this village with the bridge and the curved slope in the foreground. This is the second painting of this image for me. I learned what I did not want to do from the first attempt. This one is considerably brighter and more striking. I may revisit the painting and soften the colors of everything behind the bridge. Ink and watercolor.

The Hollow Beneath

This old arched bridge provides a quiet hollow with shade beneath it. The stream bed is dry and there is only quiet and shadows for the birds and other little critters. Watercolor pencil, 4" x 6".

Steam Over The River

I re-created this painting from the book Banshee Train which was illustrated in watercolor by Ted Rose. I am a lover of trains and the manner in which Ted painted is an inspiration.

This painting reminds me of days past when I was a boy mesmerized by the beauty, strength and noise of huge trains that rumbled past. I still love all of that. This view is a steam engine with passenger cars somewhere in Colorado. Ink and watercolor, 18" x 22" framed. SOLD

Country Arches

This high arched bridge spans a peaceful country valley. The trains passover on this bridge and break the silence of the country side. The structures, the greenery, the distant hills and the bridge together make this a pleasant view. To artists who think they need to be exact on everything, note how I have made the lines on the bridge very loose but the structure still looks real. So do not worry if all of your lines are not exactly straight or angles perfectly squared off. This painting is 8" x10", ink and watercolor.

No Hands Bridge

The no hands bridge is called that because at one time there were no guard rails for you to use for support. That's my explanation for it anyway.This historic bridge crosses the American River east of Auburn, California. The bridge was completed in 1912 and trains would cross over hauling materials from the quarries. The building of this structure proved that concrete was practical for longer bridges. It's dangerous down by this quiet waterway. The water is deep and the current swift. Jagged rocks lurk beneath the waterline. I know all this because I used to play on and around the bridge when I was young--how smart was that? 11" x 14", ink and watercolor.
