From Albion River Inn

I have painted Albion River Bridge, “263. Albion River at Sunset” in 2008. The view was from the harbor.

Now I was curious about the view of the bridge from the Albion River Inn restaurant yard.

I copied about the bridge from Wikipedia below.

The Albion River Bridge is a wooden deck truss bridge crossing the Albion River in Mendocino. It is the only remaining wooden bridge on California State Route 1

In 1944, the present span was opened.[6] It was built during World War II, and because concrete and steel were in short supply during the war, it was built of salvaged wood,[2] treated with a copper azole Preservative.

It was sunny and clouds are so exiting. It was in December, but it feels like spring weather and flowers were blooming.

I heard that some people have wedding ceremony on the green on the Albion River Inn restaurant yard.


Today it’s a gloomy day in Santa Rosa. It’s nice to see a sunny day painting, isn’t it?


Though we are waiting for rain.
