Dalton Covered Bridge
This watercolor by Conrad Young features the Dalton Covered Bridge which spans the Warner River in Warner, New Hampshire. It gets its name from a nearby resident when it was first opened in 1853 to allow Joppa Road to cross the river. Vehicular traffic still uses the bridge, one way at a time.
Conrad Young considers himself fortunate to have grown up on farms all over Maine and New Hampshire. His father, a logger and blacksmith, also raised horses, so many of his childhood memories were of time spent in the woods and hayfields. His passion of the mountains, lakes, and woodlands is evident in the landscapes he enjoys capturing in watercolors. Each scene is a childhood memory with unique lighting, composition, and unusual arrangement of elements and colors. To learn more about Conrad, please visit his website www.watercolorbyconradyoung.com
