Art: Challenge At The Bridge by Artist Carol Thompson

Challenge At The Bridge

"The Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Chieftain meet in the bay near Astoria, Oregon to face a challenge at the bridge".

Artist comment:  "The year 2011 is the bi-centennial of the founding of Astoria, Oregon. Part of the celebration was a sailing of two tall ships; the Lady Washington, and her sister ship, Hawaiian Chieftain. As they drew alongside each other, volleys of mock shell fire echoed across the water, accompanied by great clouds of smoke. The battle was declared a draw as delighted onlookers cheered! In this pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes paper, I chose to depict the scene as these two beautiful tall ships maneuvered with the Astoria-Megler bridge as a backdrop. I love the lines and sleek hull of the boats, contrasted by the straight angles of the masts. The scene is indicative of a pleasant summer day on the bay".
