Keast most likely painted this watercolor outdoors and onsite. She depicts the Stockton Avenue Bridge over the Aquetong Creek in New Hope, PA. The bridge was built in 1910. The bridge is reflected in the river in the foreground, leading the eye to a quaint town with pink homes and a church steeple. With expert control over the difficult medium of watercolor, the artist renders the architectural details of the bridge and houses, while using a range of blues and greens to create a counterpoint between a foreground tree and an organic flow of the trees on the opposite bank.
