'Stari Most' - Mostar Bridge, Bosnia-Herzegovina by 


Oil on 12 × 9 in canvas board
by F.A. Moore
Begun February 27, 2013; set aside; finished April 30, 2014.

Abstract-impressionist painting depicts ‘Stari Most’, the beautiful ‘Old Bridge’ in Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina, on the Neretva River.

The Old Bridge, built by 16th century Ottomans, was among the many casualties of the bombings, in the late 20th century’s Bosnian War. With international funding, it has since been rebuilt, dedicated in July 2004. The original design was by Hajrudin, a student of Mimar Sinan, the most esteemed architect of the Ottoman empire.

    What a wonderful tribute to an amazing place with such an enormous history and dynamic Frannie !
    So much going on in your frame… I’m drawn in through the bridge and into the populated hills, so much to discover along the way.
    Fantastic work !!

  • Awesome, Billy! Yes, I think it must be a busy place, once again, today. Mostar has an incredible history. Great to see you; and I love that you are first to arrive! Thank you!

    Frannie, you are on a great creative mood!
    This is another gorgeous painting. I really love the mixture of abstract background with the bridge.
    It is gorgeous I also love the history of the place.

  • I am so happy with your appraisal of this painting. I have to admit that I am getting a charge from the coffee brown, naive drawing against such brilliant color. Thank you so much, Beatrice!

    OH WOW! I love the Depth you added, it’s quite beautiful and full of neat abstract qualties… now that I see it up close I m so happy it will be part of our group!

  • Hey, Lina! I’m happy too. Thanks for accepting it into your new All Abstract Art group. The abstract underlying the work was created with this ultimate painting in mind. That’s why it works so well, I believe. There was a long time between start and finish, but all is well that ends well. Thank you again.
