Oil Painting On Canvas - Bridge Rehabilitation Project

A great bridge is a great monument which should serve to make known the splendor and genius of a nation; one should not occupy oneself with efforts to perfect it architecturally, for taste is always susceptible to change, but to conserve always in its form and decoration the character of solidity which is proper - Jean Peronnet (1790)

This Bridge painting utilized monochromatic oil painting technique. The painting is for Willow River Bridge during pouring the concrete as part of the rehabilitation of this bridge project. The bridge is located in the north of Alberta, Canada.

Zichao Wu, Robert (Bob) Henderson, and Mekdam Nima worked on the design and construction support for this interesting bridge project as part of the 2005 bridge rehabilitation program of Wabasca and Willow River Bridges.
