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.

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!

Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse on the Hudson River

I’ve been wanting to do more paintings of the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse (aka Tarrytown Lighthouse) for years, and finally got around to doing some this week. I spent two days exploring six or seven of the parks along the Hudson River around Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow to find some new vantage points and check out old ones. Now I have so many ideas for paintings that my head is spinning! This 6×8″ painting features the lighthouse, and also shows the Tappan Zee Bridge in the background, as well as the little bridge over to the lighthouse from the shore.

One thing I found out in this week’s research is that the lighthouse was originally about a half mile off shore. The shoreline was filled in for various developments, and now it’s just a footbridge away! There’s a ton of construction going on in the area now, as those old commercial developments have mostly been torn down to make way for new luxury high rise condominiums. The good news is that in the process, several gorgeous waterfront “Riverwalks” have sprung up, thanks in no small part to Scenic Hudson. Although the population density is increasing dramatically, so are the accessible views.

North South Lake is one of my favorite painting spots for birches and atmosphere. In this painting, I got both. The Hudson River School painters also favored this location. I love the way pinks and violets play together, so I explored that interaction in this painting. You can click the image below for a larger, clearer view of the painting.

I had a wonderful autumn day last week painting with friends along the Hudson River. We went to Boscobel Restoration in Garrison NY, where there is a long bluff overlooking Constitution Marsh and the river. The marsh was just starting to take on that reddish autumn glow, and an enormous sailing yacht went by, providing a great focal point out in the river. This is always one of my favorite vistas to paint — especially as the marsh turns to warm colors in spring and fall.

Crawford Notch

This view of Crawford Notch, New Hampshire, was painted by many of the Hudson River School artists, who traveled up to the White Mountains to take in the spectacular scenery. Saco Lake lies just north of the notch, reflecting the mountain and amplifying the drama of the setting. The white rock on the left side of the notch is called Elephant Head. You can hike up there for majestic views in all directions. When I’m able to do a larger painting of the scene, you’ll be able to see why it’s called Elephant Head! Paintings are underway of views from up there too.

I’ve been doing a bunch of paintings from photos I took during our recent trip to New Hampshire. We took the cog railway up Mt. Washington one day (great fun!) and enjoyed the majestic views of the Presidential Range from the top. The Appalachian Trail runs along the tops of several of the mountains, following the ridge line on the journey up to Maine. I captured this view of a lone hiker on the ridge and couldn’t wait to get my brushes going on it.

Many of the Hudson River School painters traveled to the White Mountains. I visited a number of the spots where they painted on my trip, and it’s not hard to see why they were so inspired by the views they encountered!

This summer, my husband and I went to the John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary, aka Slabsides, to walk around the pond, see his cabin, and take photos. It was not easy to find the place, but once we finally got there, we enjoyed walking the property and seeing why he had 7,000 visitors during his time at the cabin! The pond is quite beautiful, with striking rock outcroppings and a rocky peninsula to explore. The original cabin is still standing too. I did this little painting from one of the many photos I took there.

Fall is just beginning here, but I still have a bunch of my summer paintings to post! If you’ve been tagging along on my blog, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve loved doing these watercolor creek paintings this year. Some have focused on reflections, some on foliage like overhanging tree limbs and branches, and this one is all about the light streaming through from the back of the painting and hitting the water. I’m going to really miss these warm summer days, standing along the stream banks with my easel. I think I’ll have to frame a few of these and hang them in my house to remind me of what it felt like!

Sunset Rock

170901 Sunset Rock 5x7 435

5×7″, oil on linen panel

SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This Hudson River School site in the Catskill Mountains is one of my favorite hike destinations. I go up there several times a year, and understand why it was also a favorite of the Hudson River School painters! This is probably destined to be my last Sunset Rock painting before the fall colors take hold.

Speaking of the Hudson River School, for those who have not gone to the Thomas Cole Historic Site in Catskill NY to see the Sanford Gifford show, you have until October 29 to do that. I just went back for the second time, and it’s truly a “Don’t Miss It” exhibit for those who love Hudson River School art, art history, and hiking in the Catskills. The show focuses on Gifford’s paintings done in the Catskill Mountains, and provides site information for where they were all painted too. There is also a show catalog available at the Visitor Center there.
