Dix Ave Bridge

Dix Ave Bridge
Oil on linen/panel, 2013, 7x5"
This industrial landscape painting is a view of the Dix Ave bridge over the Rouge river near the Rouge plant. I got some shots of a freighter going through the bridge and when they tried to lower the drawbridge it was so hot the metal bridge had expanded so much it could not be closed. I left after watching them try to close the bridge for a good half hour. With the Jefferson Ave and Fort St bridges closed for repair the traffic was really backed up. The Fort St bridge is sitting on a barge, maybe a future painting.
