One Bridge... Many Paintings

Illinois Street Bridge
Copyright 2012 Addie Hirschten

Depicted above is the first painting I created of one of the bridges crossing the Broad Ripple Canal in Indianapolis over a year ago. Since then I have settled on one spot looking east toward the Illinois Street bridge.
Like an old friend or a bad penny I always come back to that spot. It is just a spot like any other but I love it. Just like lovers I can't help but have favorites. Maybe it is hierarchical but this spot...
this is it.

  1. So cool to see them all together. Beautiful.

    1. Thanks- It is odd to have them side by side. It makes me realize exactly how extreme the changes in color are with the seasons.
