Rocky Bank

The park just below Shepaug Dam on the Housatonic River in Southbury Connecticut has a wide grassy field for picnics. Here the river bank is rocky and currents are strong, not suitable for swimming, though there are very good places to launch your kayak or canoe. Creating a painting of reflections on the water was a challenge. The longer I looked at the image, the more abstract it became, until I could no longer see the thing it represented, like repeating a word over and over and over until it becomes gibberish.
