    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 found a wonderful park in the mountains for walking, photography and painting. It’s called Windham Path. Whoever designed it kept the path winding around clusters of trees, through fields to magical mountain views, and alongside streams. The path is gravel and constructed with great drainage, so even after a rain, it’s not muddy. My husband and I had some great walks here, and I went back in late fall with my paints. I’m sure I’ll be painting much more of it next season, but I was fortunate to have come across it at peak foliage time! Below is an image you can click on for a larger view of the painting:

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.

This large, colorful, splashy acrylic was painted on site at Olana, overlooking the Hudson River. It’s probably my favorite Hudson River view, and I’ve painted it on location a number of times in smaller formats. I always think about how many Hudson River School painters stood in this very spot, gazing at the distant Catskill Mountains while trying to capture the light and scenery here.

I didn’t have a setup to photograph large works very well until recently, so this large spring scene hasn’t yet made its debut on my website! It’s a perfect size for over a sofa, mantle or dining room wall.

What could be better than painting with a good friend along the Hudson River on a beautiful, unseasonably warm day in late fall? Not much! I always enjoy the view of Storm King and the Hudson from the western vantage point of this park. Sometimes I think that plein air painting is just an excuse to get out and enjoy the scenery!

I really love this view from Frederic Church’s Olana estate. It takes me back to the heart of the Hudson River School, overlooking the farms and fields where it first began, and Church’s first home on the property there. I’ve painted the scene in different seasons and formats. This was my first go at 2:1 panoramic proportions. I am liking this ratio for the scene! Here it is in its glory, with the summer greens, lower fields and far-off hillsides. Below is an image you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the scene:

There are several wonderful views of Croton Gorge Dam, and great vistas from the bridge at the top as well. I was in a splashy acrylic mood on this day, and let the drips and splatters become part of the painting. This was painted mostly with the Golden High Flow acrylics, which have an ink-like consistency. They form a permanent shield just like other acrylics, so that they get sealed, varnished, and framed without glass, just like oil paintings.

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.

This is a little plein air piece from along my driveway. I’ve painted here in every season; it’s an easy spot for me to get to! Perhaps someday I should have a show of driveway paintings because I do paint there frequently. I liked the way the rock outcropping illuminated at the end of the road in the morning light, and the colorful wildflowers lining the sides of the path.

For most of this summer, all the creeks and waterfalls were dry. I used the opportunity to paint some of the rock formations around waterfalls, and in this case, the bridge above yielded a nice bright focal point amidst the summer greens and the rocks.

This waterfall is nestled deep in the woods behind my house, so I go there to paint frequently. Following a rainfall, the sound is a roar as the water hits the base of the falls and rushes down the many cascades below.

This is one of those scenes that I had my eye on for a year or so before I had a chance to get out there and paint it. The location is very close to a dramatic waterfall, so I always ended up painting the falls instead! I went out there several days in a row, and so finally had the opportunity to sit by the quiet, meandering stream with my paints.

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:

I’ve been picking up some ship models at flea markets to paint and sketch.This is a really old model of the Santa Maria, wonky and aged and appears hand carved. It has a character that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it! I brought it out to the patio and painted it in acrylic.

After a full day of painting, I usually go out on the patio and relax with a tall glass of iced tea and my little dog, BB. I sit in a comfortable chair and admire the hanging plants, backlit by the late afternoon sun, and enhanced by the dark trees in the background. I’ve always wanted to paint them, but by that point in the day, I’m just too tired to pull out my paints again. Eventually I did get around to painting them though, as you can see!

This is a favorite fall vista from Olana, homestead of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. Every time I go there, I stroll past this field and overlook to see how the color has changed through the seasons. The fall grasses begged to be painted! I did this small one, and then did a larger version of it (which you can see by clicking here). I recently realized that I’d neglected to photograph and post this smaller one!

This is a view from Hudson River School painter Frederic Church’s homestead, Olana. It was painted on location at a spot close to where one of his studios was located on the property. The pond, Hudson River, and Catskill Mountains are all visible in the scene with the drama of the sunset. I never get tired of painting at Olana!

I’ve had a really hard time getting a decent photo of this painting, so I’ll just say that the photo cannot do this one justice! Below is an image that you can click on to get a larger, clearer view of the image, but it still doesn’t look nearly as nice as the actual 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.

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.

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 is yet another waterfall, painted out on location in early spring when the runoff from the mountains is spectacular! I call this one Mossy Falls, since the wet ledges become covered with moss as the temperatures warm.

This painting has been in progress for a really long time. I spent a few days out on location painting the falls, trying to capture the light very early in the morning, while the foreground was still in shadow. I worked on it in between in the studio. Finally I am considering it finished. In fact, it is varnished, framed, and hanging in it’s new space at Bistro Brie & Bordeaux in Windham, New York!

I love this old maple tree that overhangs the creek. Once the summer greens take hold, it’s much harder to appreciate the shape and structure of these stately, graceful residents. I don’t often get out here to paint before the meadow beyond it loses the golden color, but this year I was determined.

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.
