Sue Cook, Corporate Relations Manager Speaking on Carol Acquilano’s North River, Marshfield, Massachusetts
I’m Sue Cook, corporate relations manager at the Gallery.
Carol Acquilano’s painting, North River, Marshfield, Massachusetts, takes me to a very similar view on my family’s farm. Our farm is just 45 miles southwest of Marshfield, and yes, the farm’s primary crop is butternut squash!
In this painting I’m immediately drawn to the water and reflections. I can’t imagine this view without either. Do you notice that even though we don’t see the sky above, we do see its reflection?
In addition, I love the stillness that exudes from this scene. I can hear the quietness. In today’s busy world, stepping into this scene slows me down and renews my spirit.
I encourage you to stand tall, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy!
