    "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! "

    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!

There is a park along the Hudson River in Irvington, New York, which has nice views of the New York City skyline. A client suggested I check it out, so I went with my camera one extremely windy, cold autumn day. It certainly wasn’t the kind of day I’d want to be out painting along the river! However, there were wonderfully dramatic skies and choppy water reflecting light from the breaks in the clouds. The spray flew up in all directions, and I nearly got soaked out there just taking pictures! This painting was done from references obtained during that expedition.

Sunrise Glare on the Hudson

The other day, I posted a painting done from Bear Mountain, overlooking this same view of Iona Island and the Hudson River. The challenge I faced on that one was the quickly changing light very early in the morning. I was so determined to capture the strong yellow glow before it vanished, that I went back the following day. I arrived very early and pulled out this small panel, covering it with the transparent yellow that washed the scene, and painting into that until the sun came up higher and the color again disappeared. Once that happened, I stopped and put it away so that I could finish it in the studio, and keep the concept intact. I tried to keep the painting as transparent as possible, using very little white to maximize the glow through the paint layers.

Boats and Trains Along the Hudson

This painting was started early one morning up on Bear Mountain, overlooking the Hudson River and Iona Island. The strong, early morning like lit up the river, and the island and mountains were all silhouetted. As I worked and the morning wore on, that colorful, angled morning light gave way to a different scene. Much as I initially intended to hold onto what I started with, I found myself changing the character of the light for a different, though still beautiful interpretation of the scene. I went back the following day to finish it, and caught the barge and tug going by, as well as the freight trains crossing over the bridge from the island. The box cars provided some great pops of color!

Few scenes are more striking that the autumn colors from Boscobel, overlooking Constitution Marsh, and the Hudson River, with the downstream vista of the Hudson Highlands in the distance. I paint it a few times a year and it never gets old for me! This 18×24″ version was just finished up in the studio, since I was a little short on time out on location.
