Big Dam Bridge in Purple, Pulaski County

Big Dam Bridge in Purple
6X8, Oil on Panel

The Big Dam Bridge crosses the Arkansas River between Little Rock and North Little Rock just east of I-430.  It was said at the time it was constructed to be the longest pedestrian bridge in the world.  I believe it has been surpassed now by some bridge in China but it is still very impressive for a city the size of Little Rock.  It is the lynchpin of the Arkansas River Trail which is a multiuse paved trail system 14 miles long that is very popular with runners, walkers, and cyclists.

This was a plein air nocturne from a few weeks ago that needed just a few finishing touches in the studio.
