Artist's Description

“To the person who does not know where he wants to go there is no favorable wind.” ~Seneca

The old Millbrook Covered Bridge, also known as Grant Mills Bridge, in Hardenburgh, New York, USA, circa 1902. I stumbled upon this bridge last winter in the midst of a terrifying and gusting snowstorm upon Cold Mountain. This year I returned on a beautiful day to explore this bridge and three others in the area, when the winds were quite favorable.
This bridge is a Town Lattice Truss bridge, spanning a mere 66 feet, and at some time it had been moved from over the stream to next to the stream to preserve it in event of flooding! This year as the floods came, the only damage incurred was that of the historical marker blown down that once stood in front of the lofty old Covered Bridge.

Painted rendition created in DAP and Photoshop. Original image was layered in Photoshop, blending modes and Topaz filters used. Then flattened and brought into DAP, using three styles of painting and adjustments at various points of each effect. Image was then brought back into Photoshop, color corrected, and two texture by InTheName applied and adjusted. This was a first try in DAP, an experiment with this image.
