“The Housatonic River, which was home to the Mohican family of the Algonquin Indians, begins its 149- mile journey in southwestern Massachusetts. It flows by my house; I am witness to distant memories, past events, birth, death and rebirth. In autumn, I hear the voice of a thousand Canada geese. In summer, a blue heron lies hidden in the dappled light. In winter, translucent ice floes ride downstream. Birth…death…light and shadow. With spring: rebirth, new beginnings. My “River Songs” paintings probe life beneath the surface. Each painting is a translucent, watery color surface, creating depth, reflection and possibility. Always moving downstream with the flow.” – Harriette Joffe
