Bridge Over the Des Moines River

This view was taken while on the old bridge that connects Bonaparte, Iowa to Vernon, Iowa. I walked the old bridge to see the old schoolhouse that once housed the studio of the late watercolor artist, Wendell Mohr. 
6" x 6" oil on Ampersand panel

Looking at this brought back memories. He was open by appointment or luck. The bottom floor was his studio and the top his apartment. It seems like the perfect artist studio. Wendell used an image of the bell tower in his business card.
