    ------------------------------------- CUSTOMER REVIEWS

    "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!

This tree in my yard is next to the bright yellow one that I posted a couple of days ago. I set up on my patio to grab the morning backlighting. The dark background and light filtering through the tree made for a bright, fall spectacle. It’s a fall version of a Christmas tree!

The trees here have been unbelievable this week! This bright yellow maple laid down a carpet of golden leaves, and the purple mountain behind it made it all the more striking. The weather has been warm and beautiful. I wish fall would hang on for a couple more months.

This is another painting from one of my favorite locations in the Catskills. The chasm to the right, “Hell’s Hole”, goes down over 100 feet. My friend Tarryl was standing to my right as I painted this, and I wanted to tether her to a boulder to be sure she wouldn’t take a tumble!

I loved the way the strong light illuminated the foreground rock ledge, and drew the eye through the tunnel to the waterfall beyond. I feel like I could paint this scene a hundred times and not get tired of it.

This was painted last week, the day after the larger Boscobel painting posted previously. I was actually planning to do a large painting at Cold Spring, but when I arrived there, it was so freezing cold on that open area of the river, that I went back to Boscobel instead. Even up on the bluff overlooking Constitution Marsh and the Hudson River, it was warmer than the other location. The marsh was even more beautiful than the day before, and due to the chilly weather, I painted small and went home earlier. I’m not ready for winter!

Through the Meadow

I wanted to paint this scene backlit, but by the time I got myself out there this morning, it was a bit sidelit, and not as heavily silhouetted as my vision. Still, it wasn’t hard to motivate myself to make the most of the beautiful scene looking out through the treeline to the meadow and beyond. Pathways are always so inviting, and the fall foliage in the Hudson River Valley is nearly at peak.

I’m continuing on my journey to thicker paint application, which results in brushwork changes as well. I’m liking the three dimensional paint surface and mixing up huge piles of color!

What a gorgeous fall day it turned out to be today, following a few days of dismal, rainy weather. Our waterfalls are gushing and the foliage is nearly at peak. My dog sat beside me, impatient as usual when I’m painting instead of paying attention to him.

I’m trying to constantly remind myself to put down more paint, more paint, more paint. I’m reminded of quotes I’ve heard here and there, such as, “Put out twice as much paint as you think you need and use it all!” A quote I’ve heard attributed to Robert Gamblin (of Gamblin Oil Paints) is, “Paint like you own a paint company!” I’m eager to add more of that third dimension to my work in oils. My paintings will be taking a little longer to dry, but it will be worth it!

Peach Sunrise in Cold Spring

Today was the annual Artists on Location paintout for Garrison Art Center. I drove down from upstate at 5:50am with two artist friends and we decided to spend the morning painting in the beautiful waterfront park in Cold Spring on Hudson. There was a pinky glow on the horizon suring the sunrise, and when I was about half way finished with the painting, some beautiful, wispy pink clouds moved into the scene just at the right time to pop them in. This photo was taken about a half hour before finishing it, so it’s pretty close to done here. We had to deliver the completed paintings to the Art Center by 2pm, and they were all auctioned off in a live auction at 5pm.
