"One of my favorite subjects is the North River, which borders Scituate on the north and Marshfield (where I live) on the south. A historically significant river, it is the site of numerous pre-Revolutionary shipbuilding locations. The title refers to some of the important transitions the river has seen; from supporting livelihoods to being a recreational haven; the re-location of its mouth to the ocean due to the Hurricane of 1879; and as depicted in these paintings, the passage of night to day."
