Art: The Bridge by Artist Carol Thompson
Between Northwestern Oregon and Southwestern Washington, the four mile long Astoria Megler bridge spans the mighty Columbia River.

Artist comment:  Known affectionately locally as 'the bridge', this impressive structure was a fun challenge to paint using pastel on smooth Mi-Teintes paper.  I started with a sketch, focusing my attention on the compositional elements.  Then, starting with the sky, I painted the background carefully, leaving the inticate architecture of the structure for later.  Then I meticulously rendered the bridge.  I finished the painting with a loose, carefree treatment of the foliage in the foreground.
