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."

    ------------------------------------------ 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!

Clearing Skies Over Boscobel

Posted by Jamie on November 29th, 2011

101012-Clearing-Skies-Over-Boscobel-12x16-4501

12×16″, Oils on sealed, primed hardboard
$525.00 plus $20 shipping and insurance within the Continental United States. For local sales, shipping charge will be allocated to NYS Sales Tax. Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com for International purchases or with any questions.

This was painted on location at Boscobel Restoration, on a fall day that was heavily overcast and chilly, following a night of rain. By early afternoon, the sky had brightened and skies were clearing. The heavy cloud cover continued to lift and reveal wispy clouds and unseasonably warm temperatures. Of course I couldn’t keep chasing the light all day, so I tried to freeze the moment when the sun was breaking through the clouds and casting yellow streaks on the Hudson River off in the distance.

It’s hard to convey texture in a digital image, but here’s a closeup of a section of the painting:

What I really enjoy about the texture in the painting is that it is not visible from afar. It’s only when you get close to the painting that you suddenly see a whole new landscape of texture on the surface!

I spent a very chilly morning along the Hudson River last week. I did a lot of sketches and took a ton of photos. It was worth braving the cold! This tug was part of the river traffic that entertained me that morning, with the Palisades looming in the background, and the glistening fall foliage.

I was painting by a pond one day and these adorable ducks were following me around everywhere! They posed for a number of fabulous photos, which begged to be painted. I thought this one would make a great holiday gift, so I painted it as a long format miniature. It can be set on its easel on a tabletop or mantle, or hung on a wall. Since it’s on gallery wrapped canvas and painted on all sides, it doesn’t need a frame.

Water Lilies after Monet — Miniature Painting

Posted by Jamie on November 19th, 2011

111117-Lily-Pond-mini-450

1.25×3.75″, excluding white border
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This is another Mini Monet from my “Jamie’s Jewels” line of miniature paintings. Since these tiny gems are so challenging to paint, they are done on a commission basis only. Be sure to make your requests soon (Like, yesterday!) if you want them for the holidays. They can be done based on any painting in my available or sold inventories, or of any painting in the public domain, or a scene of your choosing if you can provide a photo.

This one is being shown without a frame, since my handy client is making his own miniature frame! Most I frame myself. The paintings are sent in gold gift boxes, and I provide a miniature easel with each purchase.

It’s been so gorgeous out these past few days! I drove down to Hastings-on-Hudson to paint along the waterfront. I thought I’d be there painting alone, but three friends decided to join me and we all had a wonderful time enjoying one of these last amazing, warm fall days.

Afternoon Sail Past Rockwood on the Hudson River

(Please note that the frame is not included with this painting, although it can be framed as shown for an additional charge.)

Rockwood is such a beautiful place to paint in fall. I don’t get down here often, so I try to make the most of it when I can! Often the boats that go by are too far out to show a reflection, or the water is too rough to see it. But this one cast a shimmering image on the water. I was telling some visitors to the park that I’d been waiting for a sailboat to go by so I could pop it into the painting. We all looked up and there it was!
