30 Day Painting Challenge - Day 20 - "Gillis Bridge" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas SOLD

"Gillis Bridge" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas
Day 20!!!  Two-thirds of the way through the challenge and the countdown for the last 10 paintings begins!

There is a bridge over the Merrimack River that connects Newburyport, MA to Salisbury, MA.  The bridge opens up when a boat with a tall mast wants to pass underneath.  It's a pretty well traveled bridge so the traffic really backs up when this happens. 

I chose a rather unusual composition as I really wanted to paint those puffy clouds.  I stood on the boardwalk and painted while people came by and said hello.  Everyone was in such a good mood as the day was sunny and bright.
