    ------------------------------------- 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 :-)"

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."

    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!

I have been wanting to paint this scene ever since I saw it for the first time a few years ago. No matter what time of day or season, this view in the Catskills is spectacular. My husband and I drove past a few weeks ago and I took some photos. During the big snowstorm last week, I started the painting; it seemed appropriate! I’d like to do a large format horizontal of this view also….someday.

I have a favorite field I like to paint from at Frederic Church’s Olana estate in Hudson NY. Hudson River School artist Church did a lot of sunset paintings from that area of his property. I was walking along the trail past one of his painting spots close to sunset when I caught this opening in the trees, overlooking the Hudson River through the clearing. I started to paint it on location, but couldn’t finish in time before it got dark. I snapped a bunch of photos while painting, and finally had a chance to finish it up today. I definitely want to check out this scene again at other times of day, and in other seasons. They’ve been working a lot on clearing overgrowth to bring some of these views back that have gotten overgrown as the years go by. I’m always excited to see what’s new in the landscape there!

I’m fortunate to live by a lake with a great sunrise view. This was painted on a morning with a haze over the lake, creating spectacular colors as the sun came up. It glowed yellow-orange as it emerged above the tree line, casting warmth and light upon the whole scene.

I just brought this painting over to RiverWinds Gallery today, along with five others, for their grand re-opening celebration. The reception for the new show will be this Saturday, January 14, from 5-8pm. The address is 172 Main Street, Beacon NY.

Yesterday, I hung a solo exhibit at Who’s Cooking in Croton Falls, NY. Sixteen of my smaller paintings are there through the holidays. The image above shows many of my landscape paintings that are in the show. I’ve selected these because small paintings make such ideal holiday gifts. Everybody has a spot to hang a little gem! I’ll have paintings there until Spring, and will switch them out every month or so to provide new shows for customers and visitors. You can see the shows, and simultaneously pick up something for lunch or dinner.

My popular little oil-painted bird portraits, in the gold/cherry, oval frames, are among the paintings in the show. My new camera has given me a much-needed advantage in getting reference images of these precious creatures!

Sepia-toned tree drawings are also represented in the exhibit:

I’m sorry for the glare in the photo, but getting images through the glass on the drawings is challenging at best! If you’d like to be able to see each one better, you can check the link in the last paragraph below for the individual drawings on my website.

I plan to have some themed shows running after the holidays, such as sunrises and sunsets, and one of waterfalls in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. If you keep coming back from time to time, you’ll not only get to see new art shows, but you’ll experience the culinary wonders of the chefs at Who’s Cooking! It’s a fabulous lunch and take-out-dinner place, right near the Croton Falls Train Station. After hanging the show yesterday, I brought home baked cod with dill sauce for my dinner, steak for my husband, and a side dish of broccoli rabe. It was delicious. They also make the best homemade chicken pies I’ve ever tasted. I’m looking forward to sampling more from their menu. They are located at:

Click this link, then scroll down to see the individual paintings and prices with shipping. Please note that some of the website prices are different from the prices posted at the show.

This is one of the many stunning, old trees at Olana, home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. This tree is right near the site of Church’s old studio. I went on a drawing/painting spree with trees this year, and especially enjoyed working in these warm sepia colors on toned paper.

This autumn painting was done from one of my favorite spots along the Hudson — Little Stony Point in Cold Spring. A short walk through the woods is rewarded by a sandy beach facing some of the most beautiful scenery along the river. This view faces west toward Crow’s Nest Mountain.

Come see the annual holiday show, “Buone Feste” at RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon New York. The reception is from 5-8pm at 172 Main Street. I brought about 20 recent paintings for you to enjoy. RiverWinds is a wonderful source of handmade gift items by artisans throughout the Hudson Valley, and fine art. Get a jump start on your holiday shopping! You can check out their website at this link. Many of my paintings that are there are posted here on my page on their webiste, or you can browse them at the RiverWinds Gallery link on my blog.

This painting is from one of those Hudson River School spots I love to visit at Frederic Church’s Olana homestead, though I never seem to have the time to paint it on location. It’s been in my “To Do” image file for ages. I finally got around to doing it from photos in two sizes — this 12×16″, and also a 5×7″, which you can see at this link.

This is Hudson River School artist Frederic Church’s original home on his Olana estate. He lived here in “Cosy Cottage” before building the huge mansion atop the hill overlooking the Hudson River. I love this view from the side, with the hill in the distance and farm fields below. I’ve been painting it for a couple of years in different seasons and formats, and checking it out at different times of day to see the lighting variations. I really want to do a very large painting of the scene, so in the meantime, I’m exploring what form that will take! Below is an image you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the painting:

Driving into the Catskill Mountains through Kaaterskill Clove on Route 23a, there is a spectacular waterfall around a horseshoe bend in the road. A large sign there marks the trailhead for Kaaterskill Falls, and so many people mistakenly think this lovely cascade is the famous Kaaterskill Falls. Beautiful as it is, clearly it is not in the running for the title of the tallest waterfall in New York State, but it is certainly much easier to get to! It’s another half mile up a steep and rocky mountain trail to arrive at the base of Kaaterskill, so I can almost understand those who would rather mistake it than do the hike!

I actually don’t mind doing the hike, so when I go here, I’m always hiking all they way up to the larger falls and painting Kaaterskill. I figured it was time to give this little beauty its due, so I planned a day to paint with friends at the more diminutive (but still gorgeous) Bastion Falls. I found it a more difficult subect than Kaaterskill in spite of its smaller size, and loved both the location and the challenge.

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.

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 had an irresistible invitation to paint at somebody’s home overlooking the Schoharie Creek. There were gorgeous views of Stony Clove Notch, but I was drawn to this upstream composition of the creek as it wound through her property. I scrambled halfway down (and back up again!) the steep slope with all my painting gear, but the reward of the vista was well worth the effort.

This painting has been in progress for a really long time.

The waterfalls by my house are raging this time of year as the snow melts up on the mountain. This waterfall is always the first one to dry up, so I was determined to paint this one first! Most years, by the time I get out there, it’s already dry. It used to be a split waterfall, running in two cascades, but for some reason, that second water trail is blocked, so I just painted it as a single fall. I’ll have to climb up there to see what’s blocking the left side! The most dramatic feature to this waterfall is the large, white slab of rock that juts off to the right.

This was painted from a scenic drive on Bear Mountain. Facing upriver there’s a great view of Iona Island (which I’ve also painted many times), and downriver is this fabulous vista through the Hudson Highlands. The Appalachian Trail crosses the Hudson on this bridge. There were large boats and barges going by, and sailboats off in the distance, which I put into the painting as I saw them. With the autumn colors, it was truly a spectacular day. It’s taken me awhile to get around to taking the photo of the painting and posting it. But the good news is that by now the painting is dry and can be sent out to a new home!

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.

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!

This is the view of the Hudson River as seen from Hasbrouck Park in Kingston. This spot was recently added to the Hudson River School Art Trail, as one of the places where the Hudson River School artists visited and painted. It features one of the enormous ships we sometimes see along the river. The ship gives some scale to the width of the river at that spot, and the height of my vantage point overlooking the scene. I also placed some sailboats near the ship as they passed by, so that viewers can get an idea of how massive that ship is!

Every fall brings with it the opportunity to paint Constitution Marsh on the Hudson River while it’s in the brief bright red stage. I try never to miss that chance! I never tire of this fall scene. I’ve painted it this time of year in every size from 5×7″ up to 24×36″, but it always appears fresh and exciting, and just as challenging each time!

This was possibly my last fall hike up to the base of Kaaterskill Falls, one of the Hudson River School painters’ locations that I love the most. It was a cold day, and I was the last of my painting group to leave the spot. One of the park rangers was up there with me, with occasional hikers coming along to view the magnificent waterfall. I was glad to see they finally had a ranger there to try and dissuade hikers from venturing up the sides of the falls, where two have already died this year.

I’ve done so many paintings up here, but I think this was the first time I did a 2:1 ratio at this spot. I really like the way it works with these proportions. I think this layout gives a truer impression of how tall the falls are.
