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."

    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 is such a magnificent waterfall and a beautiful place to paint. Lots of folks come to swim and take in the dramatic falls on hot days. It involves a bit of a trek through overgrown brush, a steep slope, and a train track crossing, but is well worth the effort!

Here’s another of my postage-stamp-size miniature Monet Impressionist paintings. They are so much fun to paint, and I always learn something new about the chosen “master” when I do one of these. I wish you could all see it in person. So much is lost in these digital representations of artwork!

These miniatures are done on a commission basis only, so if you’re interested in one, just email me at JamieWG@aol.com.

Below is another image of the painting. This picture is about twice the size of the actual painting:

I had so much fun at this waterfall on a hot afternoon! There are several swimming spots within this waterfall, and several people were taking advantage of that way to beat the heat.

Distant Farms from Olana

Usually when I’m at Olana, I’m painting the famous vista of the Hudson River. But this time I walked along a side trail and was captivated by the view of distant farms, and the bands of cool and warm colors in the landscape. Frederic Church was one lucky painter to be able to walk these hills every day!

After the Rain at Pomeroy Falls

The day after a big rainfall, my friend Gretchen and I decided to venture to Pomeroy Falls to experience the waterfall at its most dramatic. It did not disappoint! We planned for a full day of painting, so I had enough time to pull out a large panel. I love painting with Golden Fluid Acrylics and Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid. When I get immersed in this medium, I often wonder why I ever paint with anything else!

Here is a larger image; just click it to enlarge:

The Hudson River from Plum Point

We had a really moody day on Plum Point last week, with the sun peeking in and out of clouds and an occasional threatening-looking cloud passing overhead. This is the view looking south through the Hudson Highlands, with Storm King Mountain on the right side. You can see the cut in the mountain where Route 9W winds around it. Fortunately the rain held off and I got to not only finish my painting, but complete a sketch for The Sketchbook Project 2012 too!

Colors of the Hudson from Hyde Park

It seems to me that whenever our painting group goes to the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, New York, most of the artists prefer to paint the high view from up behind the mansion, or to spend the day painting in the beautiful Italian Gardens there. (You can check out my gouache sketch from up behind the mansion here.) But I’m always drawn to the Bard Rock section of the property down along the shoreline of the Hudson River. There are dramatic rock outcroppings there and beautiful trees along the river’s edge. Sometimes the color of the water is just too beautiful to believe. This was one of those magical days when the warm and cool colors mingled. I found a shady spot to paint that was surrounded by strong contrasts. I hadn’t been here for a long time, and I don’t think I ever painted from this exact spot before. The tide went out quickly, revealing more and more of the rocks that were nearly all underwater when I first arrived. It was another dreamy day painting along the Hudson.
