Main Street:  Bridgeport, WV- Original Watercolor Painting: This small-town life you see here in this classic depiction of a street scene in Rural America is an original watercolor painting by Lotus MacDowell, Artworks WV. Titled "Main Street, Bridgeport" it's where old architecture gives an area character, with sunlight spilling across the road and a small local coffee shop...all the ingredients for a nice, lazy day.

The image shows us a bend in the road, where several businesses converge: a warm stone building with deep shadows and a tower partially hiding an old red brick structure. They cast shadows across the road as if pointing to the coffee shop and gift store across the street, which are bathed in sunshine. The road curves into the background, where we see a gray, rundown store to finish up the gap between both sides. Bluebird skies with soft clouds make it seem warm and inviting. The entire area is framed in lush green foliage.

This classic rendering of small town America is an original watercolor by Lotus MacDowell, painted on D'Arches cold press paper. The triple matting begins with a beautiful linen mat in a khaki color, over a soft charcoal middle mat and finished with a neutral tan bottom mat. The solid wood frame is a mixture of deep brown with a lighter brown finish rubbed into the edges. This conservation framing includes Museum glass, which protects against harmful UV rays and eliminates distracting reflections.
