This beautiful bridge is just north of Isleton along the Sacramento River. I started the painting on location last Fall, blocking it in with acrylic. Once I got it home I decided to build the top layers in oil, and worked on it off-and-on, never feeling quite satisfied. I was finally able to finish it over the Christmas holiday, and now I'm happy with it. I'd like to paint this bridge again -- I love its balance of delicate laciness and massive strength.
