    "OMGGGGG, Jamie!!!! It's absolutely amazinggggggg!!!!!! I loveeeeee it!!!!!! This is sooo much more than I could have imagined!!! Thank you!!!!"

    "It's spectacular, Jamie!!! How talented you are! We absolutely love it! And you are right-the frame is just perfect for it! "

    "Happy" with it is an understatement! My sister's husband said, "Wow, it's beautiful!" That's a lot of emotion coming from him! haha. And my adult daughter said, "OMG MOM, ITS GORGEOUS!". You have added to your fan club!

    "Jamie, your painting arrived in perfect condition! And, as I expected, it looks even better ‘in person’ than on the computer screen. Thank you so much for your careful packing and wonderful painting."

    "...Today I finally surprised [my wife] with the actual painting! It is her birthday! And I just wanted to let you know the we both absolutely love it!! She was so so surprised, and just speechless.... Thank you again for being so flexible and good to work with! It was such a joy preparing for today and I appreciated your professionalism throughout the process!"

    "I love the new painting! It's actually a little more golden and fluid than it looks in the pic and I love the movement; everything in my house is a little on the warm and yellow and gold side so it could hang pretty much anywhere. It's going to the framer shortly and I look forward to having it up :-)"

    "Jamie, it's lovely!!! Thank you so much for all the time and love you've put into it! You have no idea how much joy your work is bringing to me. I'm very grateful!"

    "I just wanted to share that my father-in-law absolutely LOVES your painting. He loves the frame and said that he's never owned a real oil painting. 😊 But most importantly, he loves the subject matter and he and my husband spent a lot of time reminiscing this morning about hikes they took there years ago. This part of the Hudson is, by far, their favorite! Thank you SO much for making this Christmas gift PERFECT."

    "Your paintings of my beloved Hudson Valley are stunning! I've always loved Hudson River paintings, and can't believe that I've found someone who is following in the great tradition of Cropsey and company! "

    ------------------------------------------ If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!


    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

Today was the big day when they finally came to install the new wood laminate floor in my studio! I spent yesterday moving out all my art supplies and furniture. This morning, my parrots Lulu, Lucy, and Cookie were brought upstairs. They were not happy about the move! Fortunately, nearly everything in there is on wheels. There’s one huge cabinet that is not on wheels, but my dear husband is going to put them on tonight, so it’ll be easy to move it back in.

I love having everything in the studio so mobile. If I’m working on a larger painting, or have a model in, or just want a change of scene, I can have a new studio setup in minutes. Now that I’ll have the wood floor instead of carpeting, it will be even easier to rearrange at the slightest whim.

Needless to say, my computer in there is disconnected (I’m on hubby’s now), my camera software is inaccessible, and most of my art supplies are packed away in cabinets and drawers up against one another…. But the floor is done, and it looks fabulous!



I guess I’ll be moving furniture most of tomorrow and reorganizing.

Jamie, this is fabulous. Congratulations, I bet you will really enjoy this.


It looks super, but so empty! Hehehe, wow, look at all that space, too bad it isn’t down here, I could help you fill it up!

Jo, I’m enjoying it already! Thanks so much for stopping in to see it.

Lori, it’s not as empty as it used to be! LOL… However, I am determined not to put as much back here. This is the second time in the past few months that I’ve had to completely empty out the studio. I’m hoping to keep some of that “sparse” look and store canvases, frames, and paintings elsewhere from now on. Rondo’s favorite chair is back in here, three of my parrots are back, and my computer. Now, I just have to find a place for that easel! hahaha….


Jamie – It is gorgeous!
Maybe when I grow up I can have my own studio.
(grump grump)… my floors will need to be replaced or refinished if I am not careful.

Robin, I’ve had a white carpet in there for years and never got paint on it. But I think I’m going to get an inexpensive area rug for my painting area now, just in case! One thing is for sure; my parrots sound a lot louder with the wood floor than they did with the carpeting here!

Wow, Jamie – looks fab! If I were you I’d be rolling around all over that floor in excitement right now.

Is that really the same studio room I saw when I visited you last year? Hard to believe! The new floor looks great, but I bet not too much of it will be visible once you get done “refurnishing” it (I’d insert an evil grin here if I had one).

Happy painting, I’d love to have that much room to work in…

Jamie, I’m green with envy!

The new floor looks wonderful!!!! Having something new in the studio is always an inspiration. I look forward to seeing the new work it helps to launch.

Something to say?
