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).

September 17, 2015 ‘Outside-In #3 – Far from the Sea’ Jane Tims

~

I have submitted another painting to Isaac’s Way Restaurant, for their 25th Art Auction and Sale.  This event will run from September 27, 2015 to late January, 2016.  The proceeds from the auction go to sponsor kids-in-need. My latest painting is titled ‘Outside-In #3 – Far from the Sea’.

~

The painting is the third in a series of still life paintings I have done about the many elements of nature we bring into our homes.  This includes items collected on walks, motifs on fabrics and metals, small statuary and so on.  My first painting in the series was ‘Outside-In’, a Chinese dragon hiding behind a glass cloche. The second painting was ‘Outside-In #2’ , a still life of a potpourri jar.
