Malone Covered Bridge – new painting

with 2 comments

Just before Christmas, my painting of the Ellis Bridge over the North Becaguimec River sold. Since I want to keep a painting in the space, I have been working on a new covered bridge painting.  For subject matter, I chose the Malone Covered Bridge near Goshen, the same covered bridge in the painting on the front cover of my book.


The Malone Bridge is in an isolated area and was one of the favorite bridges we visited in 2015.  One of the sketches in my book ‘in the shelter of the covered bridge’ is of the Malone Bridge and I used this sketch as the basis for my new painting.



The painting ‘thistles at Malone Bridge’ is 24 inches wide by 20 inches high, done in acrylics, gallery edges.

Malone Bridge, on the isolated Goshen Road near Upper Goshen in Kings County, was built in 1911. The remnants of the Malone homestead, established 1820, are located near the bridge. At this point the Kennebecasis is a narrow, clear stream. The two brooks that seem to come together at the bridge are actually two braids of the same river.

… (from ‘in the shelter of the covered bridge’, Chapel Street Editions, 2017).


‘thistles at Malone Bridge’, 24″ x 20″, acrylic, December 27, 2017, by Jane Tims


The painting will be at Isaac’s Way Restaurant in Fredericton, New Brunswick until January 28, as part of their 31st Art Auction. Silent-auction-type bids are taken until January 28, 2018, or you can purchase the painting for its full price of $320.  The art is viewed by everyone enjoying a meal at the restaurant and 50% of the proceeds from my sale are donated to ART lessons for kids-in-need. If you love covered bridges and would like some original art for your home, drop by and have a look at my work.

  1. I love ‘thistles at Malone Bridge” for the way my eyes were pulled around the scene They were drawn to the distinct leaves against the sky, then down to the golden flowers that pulled me around the base of the solid tree and up to the prominent thistles and finally to linger on the bridge. Well done, Jane.
