    ------------------------------------- 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."

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

Clouds at South Lake — Hudson River School site

5×7″, Oils on archival linen panel

It is from this exact spot that Thomas Cole painted his famous Lake With Dead Trees, and Jasper Cropsey created his beautiful sunset scene. In fact, it is one of the sites along the “Hudson River School Art Trail”. I love returning to this location at all times of day and under different atmospheric conditions. Today I was drawn here by the strong cloud formations. It’s a very cool-toned landscape in the spring and summer, so I selected a spot with some warm foreground colors, and threw some of that warmth into the sky as well.

This was at least the third time I’ve painted the home of Hudson River School artist, Thomas Cole. There’s something about the golden yellow glow and beautiful garden path that inspire me when I’m there. I did this painting for the “Postcard Show”, which is opening at the Thomas Cole House tomorrow. There was a pre-event today with about 60 of the 250 paintings displayed, and this one sold today!

I have such a wonderful time painting these little miniatures! This one was painted on location at Olana, former home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. It was another beautiful day overlooking the mighty Hudson, which has inspired artists for generations. It was painted in a completely different way than the oil sketch from the same location, which I posted yesterday. There is no one “right way” to do things when it comes to painting!

This painting was done on location overlooking Hudson River School artist Frederic Church’s estate, Olana. It is the famous Hudson River classic view from the property. This started out as a monochromatic oil sketch on location, but as the it progressed, I was unable to avoid the temptation to start putting in color!

This is another of my “Jamie’s Jewels” miniatures fresh off the easel. It is a tiny copy of Monet’s painting titled The Artist’s Garden at Vétheuil. This colorful gem was so much fun to paint!

This painting was done on location last week at Hudson River School Painter Frederic Church’s estate, Olana, in Hudson NY. The field glows in the morning light with oranges, greens and purples as fall approaches. This is one of my favorite spots to paint at Olana. I was able to spend a few days there last week and enjoyed every second!

Last year, I did a series of small watercolor sketches from the same location, which are also still available for $100-$175 each depending on size (or make me an offer for the set of four). They are already archivally matted and with backing boards to pop into standard frames.

Jamie’s Art and Music — the movie version!

Posted by Jamie on September 7th, 2012

Many thanks to Jacob Sound for producing this wonderful video of my paintings, set to music I recorded with my duo partner, Andrew Lafreniere. The piece we play in the video is titled The One by California composer Peter Madlem. The paintings were all selected from my website by Jacob. I love the way he zooms and pans with the camera, leaving me feeling like I’m strolling through the landscapes. Some of these works are for sale and some have already been sold, so some of you collectors out there might see a painting in this short flick that is up on your wall! Feel free to contact me if you see a painting you’d like to purchase.

You can contact Jacob or see more of the videos he has done on his Facebook page or via email at jacoburi306@gmail.com.
