Pulaski Bridge View

Bridge between Brooklyn and Queens

View from the Pulaski Bridge
Oil on canvas
15 x 30 inches

I was walking over the Pulaski Bridge between Greenpoint and LIC last summer after visiting the studio of an artist friend and took this photo. It captured many of the aspects of the neighborhood such as St. Mary's Church steeple and the 59th Street Bridge. One of the buildings in the painting, Cangro, has since been torn down and a new structure is being built. So, the view on canvas is now, in a sense, an historical record. I enjoyed painting on this long horizontal format as it provided a way to stretch a bit.
