Painting by Carol Skinger of the rooftops of Aspinwall, PA as seen from Route 28, painted recently to be part of my solo art show of 40 paintings at our local library Cooper Siegel Library in Fox Chapel, a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. I am thrilled to say it’s up now and ready for your eyeballs. Artworks can be purchased. There are a number of other paintings in the exhibit of nearby places too. This original 30 x 22 watercolor and gouache painting is for sale and because I got instant requests for prints I will have prints of it available next week. The show will be up for 6 months and purchases can be made at the library. 25% of each purchase benefits the library.

Aspinwall, PA How many people travel on Route 28 every day? 58,000 vehicles it says here. We have all gotten stuck on it, sometimes in a place that’s pretty great to look at. Most often not.
What catches your eye?
For me in all seasons it’s the rooftops of Aspinwall and both bridges spanning the Allegheny River: the muscular black & rust truss bridge, Brilliant Railroad Bridge and the lacy structure of the Highland Park Bridge painted baby blue. I’d rather see HP Bridge painted red/orange like the Golden Gate Bridge or simply red. Then it would look like a Lego set which I think is a great look. In another post I will show you what catches my eye in Sharpsburg from Route 28.
The beautiful new Aspinwall Riverfront Park where Brilliant Railroad Bridge meets Aspinwall is a work of art. For one thing it has an amazing slide, the work of NY sculptor Tom Otterness whose work is in public installations and museums around the world. Most recently, Otterness has installed The Tables from the collection of the Whitney and 50 new sculptures in niches at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in NY, as part of the group exhibition, The Value of Food.
This is a detail of my painting of the children’s slide/sculpture by Tom Otterness at Aspinwall Riverfront Park. It is in my art show and for sale at Cooper Siegel Library.
