Paper Mill Bridge

I took a drive south to Bennington last week and found more than a few painting possibilities.

Some of those are now in the hopper “incubating”… a good way to describe a germinating artistic idea.

The Paper Mill Bridge didn’t need a lot of consideration.

She was love at first sight.

    So “VERMONT”! Unique… recalling the Ole” swimming hole in North Hartland, Vt….@ the base of the dam of the Ottaquechee River and the wonderful (still standing) covered bridge. Thank you for memories.

    What a fine bridge! The red colored timber of the bridge in contrast to the light grey of the roof is jumping out of the gloomy wood around the water falls and the flat river reflecting the day light. Small parts of red surround the water on the left side. So delicate! I know your whites are so colored as the rest of the painting. Greetings from Duisburg. Doris

    An outstanding representation of the beauty and solidity of one of Vermont’s many covered bridges. But, what really catches my attention is the exquisite light and color in tumbling falls and quiet pool. As Doris says, “So delicate!” There’s a lot of meaning in those words.

    There are so many beautiful places in Bennington and all throughout Vermont. Although I am particularly fond of Southwestern Vermont It’s hard to pick a favorite . Beautiful job, Peter

    This is one of the three covered bridges that my grandson and I can pass over to come to my house. I ‘ll ask “Are we going Silk, Henry or Paper Mill Bridge way to go to my house today? ” Peter, you’ve captured the timeless beauty that is a Vermont covered bridge. And yes, this part of the state has so many treasured spots waiting for your brush to bring them alive for others.
