Shimanek Covered Bridge, from original pen & ink by Wayne Bricco, Acrewood Art

Shimanek Bridge
Linn County, Oregon

May you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13b NLT

My covered bridge series needed another colored bridge. So many of the bridges are white and I wanted some variety in our calendar. I decided to do this one for several reasons. I really liked the red siding outside with the white interior on Shimanek Bridge; I especially liked the white trim and louvered windows. It was also requested by a visitor to our booth at the Corvallis Fall Festival. I like to draw what my fans ask for whenever it fits into my scheme.

When I was planning for our Oregon Covered Bridges calendar I had to think about the seasons when the pictures will be showing. I thought this would be a good one for the end of the harvest in November. Looks like the old manure spreader has served its time! (This one is a bit older than the one in Lavender Joy.)

The Covered Bridge Society of Oregon recognizes 51 bridges. You can read more about each of them by going to their website.
