Bridge to Brookline

2120704 Summer Idyll, Bridge to Brookline
Bridge to Brookline

This old iron bridge was built after the floods in 1937. It was recently renovated and will be with us for a while longer. This painting is one of a series of paintings that I did “en plein air” during the summer of 2012. I called this series idylls. An idyll is a short description in verse or prose of a picturesque scene or incident, especially in rustic life. Later it became used more expansively as an extremely happy, peaceful, or picturesque period or situation, typically an idealized or unsustainable one.

These scenes are idyllic in the pastoral sense but not idealized. This is the landscape here.
