Ponte Valentré

Pont Valentré - Cahors, France Thomas W Schaller Watercolor : 30x22 inches 15 July 2012
Pont Valentré is a fortified medieval bridge from the 1300's sometimes called the 'Devil's Bridge' . It took 70 years to complete and because the river Lot's bed was so muddy and difficult to build in, the legend is that the architect made a deal with the devil that if he would help him complete it, the first to cross would be sacrificed to the devil. But when complete - the first over the bridge was a poor mule....

The Gapstow - Central Park




"the gapstow - central park"
30X22 inches
watercolor
14 january 2012

The iconic Gapstow Bridge in New York's Central Park was designed in 1896 by Howard & Caudwell. It replaced the original wood and cast iron bridge designed by Jacob W. Mould in 1874.
With it's bucolic site set against the majestic skyline of Manhattan's Central Park South and Fifth Avenue rising up beyond, it has been a favorite subject for painters and photographers for generations. So I hesitated painting yet another view. But I love this spot so much that I thought I'd give it a go.
