Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 20x30
(click image to enlarge)

The Brooklyn Bridge, ranks as one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th Century.The impressive bridge spans the East river between Brooklyn and Manhattan. The bridge officially became a national monument in 1964.

The cruciform shape is a popular abstract design element. This view of the Brooklyn Bridge embodies strong horizontal and vertical lines to create dynamic tension and hopefully, a strong composition.
