“Artists who take a measure of their inspiration from the
Housatonic River strive to capture the lingering atmospheric light that
mirrors the shoreline’s vegetation, the kind of thing we might see
from a passing car window, or while hiking, or from the bow of a canoe
moving quietly. We reach for our camera to preserve the shimmering reflection
of trees in water, knowing that the fleeting Edenic moment soon passes
when light and the things it hits
