Artist Paints the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Arch as it Rises
Most days, people stop along Continental Avenue Bridge or the levees and take a snap shot of the new bridge being built in town. However, on Thursday, June 24, Dallas resident Olivette Hubler, wearing a broad-brimmed hat to protect her from the sun’s rays, braved the north Texas heat to paint the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. With only the arch’s 150-ton centerpiece left to raise, Ms. Hubler, perched atop the levee, painted a breathtaking and colorful impressionist cityscape - including the bridge and its growing arch.
Ms. Hubler, who lives in Dallas, enjoys painting on location and has traveled across Texas, much of the United States and even the world to capture beautiful cityscapes and landscapes. Voila! Here is yet another view of the future of Dallas.
