    I'll be teaching a three day landscape painting class at Olana (in Hudson, NY) from September 8-10, 2015. It will run daily from 10am-4pm. I am only taking 12 participants, so be sure to save the dates and sign up early. It's now up on the Olana website. You can read more about it and register by clicking this link.

    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 wonderful old maple tree sits beside the creek in my yard, just downstream from the waterfall. That’s why I haven’t painted it until now! I always mean to paint this downstream view, but end up giving into the temptation to face in the opposite direction to paint the waterfall. In fact, there is so much painting potential from this one spot that I could probably do an entire show of paintings by just rotating a few degrees every couple of days and painting what lies in front of me.

Now that I’ve done this one, I’d like to do three more facing this way. One would be a larger version of this scene. A second would be this scene, but with a high horizon, so it could focus on the water reflections in the foreground and the transparency of the crystal clear pool there. A third would be a painting of a closer view of the tree trunk, in a vertical orientation. I’d best get busy!

Here is an image of the painting that you can click on for a slightly larger, clearer view:
