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.
