Hoosic River Bridge

This painting is a 12x24 oil on canvas, another from my series of North Adams, a view looking west on Route 2 at the Hoosic River bridge.  The metal structures that stand on both sides of the road contrast sharply with the surroundings.  I like the abstract quality of the bridge structures, shadows, and houses lining the road.  On a canvas, the shadow of a rail is equivalent to the line marking out a telephone pole.  The bridge structure seems to push up the mountain far in the background.
