Confessions of a Florentine Pet Sitter

Bridge construction fascinates me. And Oregon has some wonderful old bridges, fodder for a multitude of bridge paintings, realistic and abstract.

This is one of a series of paintings I am working on of our local Bridge over the Siuslaw River in Florence, Oregon. Even though we are seeing the painting upside down, it feels uplifting. Balanced. The massive arch that moves from left to right upholds the morning sky. Intricate geometric shapes support the long thin posts standing on their heads.

Lovely painting! Looks good upside down or right side up, ☺️

Thank you Cdog5. I’m going to include a hanging wire to hang it upside down and one to hang it right-side up.
I’ll sign the backside or on the edge.
Depending on one’s aesthetic values, one can hang this painting anyway one wants! Or not!
Though, I do like it upside down.
