Watercolor… Perkasie, Bucks County. Not only is this the second time I’ve painted this bridge… not counting an even earlier pen & ink drawing… it’s also the second Mood’s Bridge. The original 1874 Mood’s Bridge was burned to the deck by arsonists in 2004. This bridge is a fairly faithful, pegged reproduction, erected in 2007. Mood’s Covered Bridge has been photographed and painted often, usually viewed from what is now a more accessible, downstream, park like setting. This is the upstream view, looking west in 2020, from the north bank of the Perkiomen Branch Creek. Few people, other than a few determined fishers, meander back here due to the dense undergrowth and irregular terrain… which, of course… is why I’m here.
