Description: Part of the CMWCA – Under the Bed Show.
“For this Under the Bed show, I have chosen one work from each of three triptychs of aerial views from the 1990s. Since we lived near Storrs, Connecticut at the time, we would fly over Hartford fairly frequently. Even though I rarely draw architecture and cities, I was inspired by the change of color and light over time. In some of these aerial views, I would combine different views and lighting effects. This view of Hartford is the last in the series and shows night lighting. The earlier works were lighter and more dusk-like in tone.” — Susan Wadsworth
