Artist Notes: On The Bridge was commissioned along with Bird's Eye View. The collector asked for "a view of Manhattan from the Brooklyn Bridge --- but being clear that the viewer is on the Brooklyn Bridge." This involved a trip to the iconic bridge, which was strewn with construction materials; but the towers soared, and the cables sang, and this composition was the result. The painting is acrylic and ink on canvas, on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides. It is framed with a shadow frame that matches the frame for Bird's Eye View. The diagonal cables are done with silver ink, and gleam when the light touches them. The painting was sold from my site on Zibbet.
