Legend has it that the Golden Gate Bridge is continuously being repainted and it takes a year to fully cover it with its famous "international orange." Truth is, it doesn't get a new coat of paint every year, but daily its rusty parts are being spiffed up. Whatever, it takes a long while to paint a bridge. I did these 20 gladly, in my Mother's sunroom in Springdale, Arkansas. I'd forgotten how refreshing it is to paint in natural light.
Here below are the works of art I used, selected as much for their maker's nationality as their composition, with an eye to the collection from which they come. You'll have to look at the four second vimeo (links above) to see where they landed, and to try to follow the connection from one bridge to another.
