            9×12 oill on panel – private collection

I have been fascinated with the aerial lift bridge since seeing it for the first time over seven years ago. Now that we have been spending our summers on Park Point, I have finally gotten around to approaching this marvel as subject matter. I am so taken by it that I intend to keep painting the bridge in all available light. This little jewel turned out to my liking. I hope you enjoy it too!

It’s true. Last year (2014) while in Duluth MN. we tailed Bob Dylan riding in the back of an old Bentley with some of his friends. He was playing that night in Duluth and stayed at the Fitgers Hotel where we saw him go in. We could see and hear the concert from our house. It poured like hell.

I’ve painted self portraits before. This was a quick attempt at using the paint on the palette at the end of the days work. And my first attempt at utilizing an ink brayer in background.

This represents a return to wood as support. I noticed providers have moved away from 1/4 inch material so all panels you see for the time being are 3/16 in. They are all sanded and primed three times before use.
