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 :-)"

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!

This painting was a long time in the planning! Several years ago, I went to a Hudson River overlook at Bear Mountain very early in the morning. It is on the western side of the river, so the sun was coming in toward me. The light streaming from the east silhouetted the land forms, and warm color streamed toward me from the eastern sky, reflecting in the water. I did a 5×7″ plein air, attempting to catch the fleeting light and color, while knowing it would all be gone in ten minutes. You can see that painting at this link.

Since then, I’ve done a few paintings based on that study, featuring the view over Iona Island and the warm, early morning light. The one at this link was a 6×9″ color study in golden hues. Another 6×9″ color study, with the orange hues as in the larger painting featured in this post, is currently at RiverWinds Gallery. I liked them both and it was hard to decide which one to go with for the large painting. In the end I decided to use the copper tones, building multiple layers of warm glaze colors over a monochrome underpainting.

Below is an image you can click on for a larger view of the painting.

Summer Journey on the Hudson

7×5″, oil on linen panel

Email me at JamieWG@aol.com if interested in this painting.

It’s not often that I find a vertical composition I really like of a Boscobel scene. I usually paint that vista in a panoramic fashion, but the path of the marsh channels works well this way too. Maybe there is a new series of verticals coming!It would certainly be a different way for me to explore this landscape that I’ve been painting for so many years.

This was painted on location at Boscobel Restoration in Garrison, New York, toward the end of one of those stellar, long, summer days. The scene overlooks Constitution Marsh and the Hudson River. Helicopters were flying overhead in formation from West Point as I painted!

Hues of the Creek

Last year, my husband and I drove through the Catskills beside the Schoharie Creek. At every possible pull-off from the road, we got out and explored the views. This vantage point was one of my favorites from that expedition. I loved the way the transparency in the water made all the rock forms visible, then turned to reflections farther off. The greens from the trees on the left also cast some reflection into the water. I was awestruck by the variety of color and types of light. I think I need to do a large version of this too. It’d be awesome as a 20×30 or 24×36!

Hudson Valley Golds

6×9″, acrylic on panel

$180.00 plus $12 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 painting is from a series of small works that I did as color studies for large paintings. It was painted with many transparent and opaque layers. A scene from Innesfree Gardens provided the inspiration for the painting, though numerous liberties were taken in the translation from location to photo and then to the painting. It is so representative of the beautiful scenery that surrounds us here in the Hudson Valley.

Hermit Thrush and Her Dandelion, framed

Posted by Jamie on September 10th, 2016


7×5″ painting, oil on panel, framed in cherry/gold as shown. (Frame adds about 2″ in height and width.)

$180.00 plus $13 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 adorable Hermit Thrush was posing next to our driveway when my husband and I went out for a walk. I stopped to take pictures, and she gave me a bunch of poses, turning so that I could photograph her from every angle! She was the cutest and most cooperative bird model I ever encountered. I’m sure I’ll be doing more paintings of her!

I cut the Ampersand panels for the bird paintings into ovals with a scroll saw, to fit these cherry and gold, oval frames. The oval shape seems to suit these bird portraits perfectly. I didn’t think anybody would be able to find frames to fit, so selling them already framed makes the most sense, and means that it’s ready to hang on your wall right out of the box.
