poetry and prose about place

in the shelter of the covered bridge – Malone Bridge

with 7 comments

As I prepare for my fall book and art sale, I have tried to bring some of my pencil drawings into acrylic-world.


One of my favorite covered bridge drawings depicts a tree of green apples against the backdrop of the Malone Covered Bridge near Goshen in Kings County, New Brunswick. The Malone Bridge crosses the Kennebecasis River where it is hardly more than a stream.




From this drawing, I have done ‘apple tree, Malone Bridge’. I think this is my personal favorite of all the paintings I have done. The painting is acrylic, 18″ X 18″, gallery edges, using Paynes Grey, Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow, Titanium White and Burnt Sienna.

      • But that’s the whole point: consciously or unconsciously they sink down and the whole painting “moves” as a result. One of the abilities of “great art” is to create a third dimension (depth) in a two dimensional painting. Another is to create “motion”. Chance or skill, you’ve done it. It’s wonderful. Congratulations! No wonder you like it.

  3. It’s beautiful. I responded to it at an emotional level; a feeling of thrilling warmth. Not kidding.
