Housatonic River at Shepaug Dam

This is a painting of the Housatonic River, standing on the shore in Southbury Connecticut, just below the Shepaug Dam, looking south towards Sandy Hook. Come here any sunny day in the summer and you may find a day laborer and his wife enjoying a quiet hour or fishing together. On the weekends, people launch kayaks and canoes while families picnic on under the pines in the grassy fields that border the river. In the winter, Bald Eagles fish, and the power company mans an eagle observation station which is open to the public. - Nancy Boudreau

The painting is 5.5" x 7.5" acrylic painting on gessoed matboard. The title and prose that appear above are handwritten on the back of the painting. The painting is also signed and dated on the back .
