Bibb Graves Bridge Wetumpka, AL


Commissioned by a client in Ashland, AL, he'd taken a photo of the bridge years ago that he said wasn’t very good so he threw it away. He asked me if I would draw it in pen and ink for him in a very horizontal shape including the Presbyterian Church at the end of the bridge. The bridge crosses the Coosa River, is 83 years old and is a favorite landmark in the area. It was filmed in the circus scene in Tim Burton's movie "Big Fish". The original is 11” x 25 5/8” and is available as a print through my etsy shop.
