The Longfellow Bridge

Boston Bridge 2

32″ Wide x 34″ Tall Watercolor on Paper

Longfellow (originally, the Cambridge) Bridge is one of the most architecturally distinguished bridges in Massachusetts. Located on the site of the 1793 West Boston Bridge, this graceful steel and granite structure was completed in 1908, and renamed to honor Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1927. The bridge joins Cambridge Street in Boston with Main Street in Cambridge and carries the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Red Line and two-way vehicular traffic across the Charles River. The bridge presently carries 28,000 motor vehicles, 90,000 transit users, and significant numbers of pedestrians and bicyclists each day.

In this scene the trolley is being over taken by foreign tourist for a ride up the famous Powell street. Almost everyone is carrying a full back pack and no one is talking. The city is bustling with pedestrians moving quickly and quietly down the sidewalks in every direction going who knows where. The majority of the pedestrians have ear phones in their ears listening to music. I find the energy exciting and refreshing. Most of all I am impressed with the friendliness and kindness of the locals and the tourist.  There were artist everywhere, making art. It was a nice trip.

Town Square Walk

Christmas is in 20 days and the Southwestern Watercolor Society is having a Christmas party today. I produced this painting to swap off in the painting exchange. This is smaller than I normally paint, 11″x14″. This is a scene from Granbury in front of Rinky Dinks, on the west side of the town square.

June 6, 2010

Day Two of the ECAA paint out and  I returned to Waxahachie alone at day break to find a peaceful town on Memorial day. After a short walk around the square I decided on the rear of the Rogers Hotel. I loved the composition. The sun was rising over my shoulder creating  fire exit stair shadows on the building. I strived to show the courthouse beyond – washed out with purple-gray. I finished the painting after about 3 hours. The sun was higher in the sky and the temperature is rising fast, 99 degrees expected today. I headed back to Dallas and arrived home by noon.
