Blue Bridge, Toledo, Ohio, 6 x 7 in. oil on linen on board
Idid this painting of Toledo’s Maumee River with the blue bridge on the same cold winter afternoon that I did the “Toledo Granary” painting. I just turned around and started another sketch! I couldn’t ascertain the name of this bridge, not on google maps at least, but someone said they thought it was the East-Gate bridge. You can see some snow on the far shore.

St. Patrick’s Church, Toledo, 6 x 6 in., oil on linen mounted on board
I did this painting of Toledo’s St. Patrick Church on a Sunday afternoon with a viewpoint in the local arts district. I believe the hill is called Links hill and the area was originally home to Irish Catholic immigrants. Father Edward Hannin was 36 years old when he was assigned to organize a parish in Toledo’s Irish Catholic population. It was a challenge, for in 1862 the city was busy constructing the Miami and Erie Canal and its laborers were more interested in saloons than churches.
I’ve started using new panels with a hanging slot on the back, so this painting is ready to hang without a frame!

- “Monkey With a Holiday Check”, 6 x 6 in., oil on linen mounted on board
