Fascinating Mid-Nineteenth Century Painter

Thomas Chambers (1808-1869) was a rather naive English born American  painter who seems to have painted many marine scenes and eastcoast landscapes. I love the color and the primitive realism. Below is a picture of the Connecticut river valley very near where I live. The foreground bush like shape has me perplexed. In the background you can see the Oxbow feature of the river right near Mt Tom. See more of his work at the 19th-Century American Women blog.
