Henry Covered Bridge

Henry Covered Bridge

Watercolor “Henry Covered Bridge” over Mingo Creek in Pennsylvania. This painting is 16” x 22” on Arches rough paper. This bridge is 12’ x 36’ built in 1881 and was used by militia as a meeting place in the 1890’s. As I studied this scene, the trees seemed to have arms covered in white bark that were illuminated by the sun. They appear as if moving and entangled amongst the deep shadows of the foliage.
