Sometimes a bridge takes us to another world, a surreal abstraction of our thoughts, or to a dear friend's front door.. or a perilous cross road. Sometimes a bridge crumbles with abuse and sometimes the bridge just wavers with the wind of your exhale. In dreams or in life, we all have bridges and sometimes we just burn them to generate new ones. (bridge and building charcoal on paper with distortion and a transparent overlay of an oil on canvas and oil pastels on paper)

This is a mind bender B16. The thoughts are rushing in and out underneath the bridge on the water, over the bridge on the wind and across the bridge with an old friend. I like it very much.

Cameras are like people--sometimes they lose focus.

Magnificent work in your painting. An imaginative creation very nicely presented. I like the colours in the back painting and the shapes and forms that can be glimpsed in the picture. Good work!

Painting is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is not what you see. - Philip Guston

Looks like the building has a face and is alarmed by all that is going on around it. For the contest? Good luck.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Left side upper section, I see the lady who must be the one dreaming with her eyes open. I know I have seen those buildings but I just cannot put my finger on where. Nevertheless, her daydream is of a place she has been to or a place she wishes to go to.

Very nice! This leaves a lot for the imagination. Great narrative too!

Emily - Bridges are to be crossed - sometimes back and forth - especially in our minds. I like this piece. Thad
