Cox Brook Bridges

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday Dec 2.

Northfield Vermont is famous for its many covered bridges.

I ventured there last week with the intention of painting one.

The way it turned out in this piece, I painted two.

It’s good to have a plan, along with an open mind to adjust when necessary.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Peter, my favorite aspect of your Cox Brook Bridges piece is the glimmer of wet in roadway and bridge.
    Thank you, and keep ’em comin’!

    I have never been to these covered bridges but after viewing your painting, I will visit this scene the next time I visit Vermont. Thanks again Peter for your inspiration!

    I also am a fan of covered bridges; they last a lot longer sometimes than other types. I read some history lately. In the Vt. town of No. Hartland where I grew up there are 2 also; only one was there (over the Ottaquechee River/Dam) during my childhood. And I was very familiar w/ the Cornish bridge…i believe you painted that scene also. Your current painting is wonderful and the details are great! Cindy

    As a middle school teacher in Northfield many of my first years living in Vermont, I would travel over these bridges to take the “back” way home to enjoy the countryside, turning fall leaves, and true
    Vermont ambiance off the main roads. Great capture of that spirit, Peter:-)

    Another one of your wonderful paintings where repetition of lines, colors, and textures prove to be as interesting as the primary subject. In this week’s rendition I find myself captivated by the colorful reflections on that slick and icy roadway.
