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

Kaaterskill Spring Morning

10×8″, acrylic on linen panel
Email me at JamieWG@aol.com if interested in this painting.

This is one of a series of three Kaaterskill Falls paintings done on location in acrylic. It’s the tallest waterfall in New York State, and was a favorite spot for the Hudson River School artists. There is a lot of construction going on by the falls now to improve access for the public. In the short term, that has meant limiting access so that they can do the work! Fortunately, I did a bunch of paintings up there early in the season, so I don’t mind taking a little break from it now. I’m looking forward to checking out any new vantage points once the trail work is completed.

Summer Afternoon at Olana

150711 Olana on a Summer Afternoon 435

12×24″, acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

Following two days of painting for the Olana Plein Air Event, (home of Hudson River School artist Frederic Church), this is the painting I selected to put into the auction that marked the culmination of the event. Actually, I laid out all the paintings I’d done during that period, and my husband chose this one! The painting sold at the auction.

Thirty wonderful artists were juried into the event. With tough competition, I felt very fortunate indeed to have been selected to participate. Even though I live so close and get to paint at Olana frequently, it’s always a magical experience.

Below is an image of the painting that you can click on for a larger view. It’s hard to show these panorama-format paintings in the space allocated for a blog image!

I set the painting into a gold plein air style frame and it looked completely washed out. So instead, I opted for this dark, coppery-wood frame with gold trim.

I’ll be posting the rest of the Olana paintings I did in the days to come. I have some from a month or two ago to post also, so you can expect a lot of Olana pieces to materialize in these posts as I try to catch up with myself!
