A Bridge For All Seasons

The Tillikum Crossing Bridge featured in my last post was the start of a thread sketch bridge binge.  These 8"x10" thread sketches are derivatives inspired by the photographs of others.  Because they were stitched in a time of healing, I made no pictures or notes documenting their creation.  I hope you will enjoy this simple tour of some of Portland's bridges decorated by the seasons.    

  
Fremont Bridge - Autumn Leaves

St. John's Bridge - A Winter Fog
Broadway Bridge - Spring Cherry Blossoms

Burnside Bridge - A Summer Sail

An additional thread sketch based on a vintage postcard of the Steel Bridge is posted on my Urban Stitcher Facebook page.  


Thank you for visiting.  I hope you return soon.
