Rogers Bridge in Waxahachie Texas

June 30, 2010

This painting has been selected from 497 paintings entered to be in the 47th SWS Annual Exhibit  for 2010Rogers Street Bridge over Waxahachie Creek, Hwy 77 Located on an early Waxahachie Creek fording site that served pioneer settlers of the area, this truss bridge was built-in 1899. It was manufactured by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio, and was one of thirteen approved by Ellis County Commissioners from 1888 to 1890. The span provided an extension for Rogers Street, a road named for Emory Rogers, donor of the Waxahachie townsite. As part of an important early north-south commercial route, the Rogers Street Bridge was vital to the growth and development of the city.

The bridge is now a link in the hike and bike trail through the green belt.

The early morning shadows and the bikers caught my attention . The tower in the far distant to the right is the Waxahachie County Court House.  I produced this painting in my studio in Dallas. This painting has become a very important part of my exploration with watercolor and art.

Day Four, Friday June 4, 2010

June 11, 2010

Day Four  was a blistering hot day. I started early. While scouting the town square, I ran into Nel and Priscilla from the SWS. I found a scene near the square at an art shop with an old blue car parked out front.
