On a recent trip up the McKenzie River east of Eugene we crossed the Good Pasture covered bridge. When we looked back we could see the fall colors framing the bridge.

I like the composition and the light and dark values of the shadows on the bridge rails and the interior of the bridge. I also like the tree trunks on the right and the reddish-brown color of the road. The branches arching over the bridge seem to have gotten lost in the background, however.

The painting is 24" x 18" and 30" x 24" framed.
