Ohio's Covered Bridges in Art

For many years, Ohio's covered bridges have been a part of the area's history and charm. Their distinctive individuality and construction have been a thing of beauty. There is a tour map that you can get that takes you to each of these bridges in Ashtabula County. This county is known for it's abundance of covered bridges.
It's not a surprise that you can find art done by area artists depicting these historical treasures.
Covered bridges do make an interesting subject.
This picture was taken by me about 2 years ago while taking a ride outside of Jefferson. I am using this picture as a guide in my newest mixed media painting.
I have a lot of work to do considering that there are several exhibits that are coming up in the next few months. This piece will probably be one that will be exhibited.
