My sister and I were out at Indian Creek. The new bridge is in place. I'm on the gravel bar looking toward it. Oil on panel 12"x 16". The new bridge does seem out of place but as a consolation seems to be providing an excellent habitat for swallows to build their nests under the roadway. This is a great development in mosquito control.
I forgot to bring my smaller pochade box. I had only brought along my large Yarka French easel. It was just too heavy to carry down the creek so I took the pastels in a canvas laptop bag. This drawing is approximately 10" by 14". It was a beautiful bright morning.
