I am a native San Diegan, so when it came time to paint a painting of my beautiful city, I just knew I had to paint the bridge over Coronado Bay. I have always been fascinated by bridges…I think it’s the idea of the two land masses being connected by a structure that man has built. To think that someone comes up with an idea in their head, applies it to paper (or now, computer), creates a model, and then actually builds it… to withstand earthquakes, cars, all sorts of pressures. The ingenuity is incredible. Imagine something that you created being used by thousands of people a day.
When I was kid, I called it the “blue bridge and I remember crossing it to play soccer tournaments on Coronado. The water is a beautiful blue with the cerulean colored bridge above cutting through a typical San Diego sunset…warm and golden.
