Cold Water Crossing
March 8, 2011

Acrylic on textured 11 by 14 canvas board. This is a painting of a stream and of an abandoned bridge built by the CCC during the Depression years. The mineral-laden water issues from a very cold spring at the Sulphur park in south central Oklahoma. In reality, much of the underbrush around the forgotten stone bridge is very healthy-looking poison ivy. The park service workers probably don’t have much trouble keeping hikers from straying from the established paths in the park as a result. I first saw this bridge¬†100_2650when I was about 5 and have never gotten any closer than this to it.
