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

    the-impressionists.jpg


    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!

Winter Along the Creek

170327 Winter Along the Creek 12x16 ac 435

12×16″, acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard
Framing available for a small additional cost.

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 love this scene and have been playing with it in various color combinations for nearly two years. There are so many ways to interpret the composition in terms of light, season, focal point, and color palette, that I can’t seem to get tired of it! It’s a view of the lake at Innisfree Gardens. This most recent rendering is in fall colors, with the late day light striking the eastern hillsides and distant mountain before sunset.

I spent a magical day painting at Boscobel. The weather was ideal, and a huge buck was staring at me from the distance. (Expect to see a painting of him soon!) There was tug and barge traffic out on the river, helicopter formations flying overhead from West Point, and good company with other artists. It’s hard to beat a day like that.

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

My husband and I were out hiking on a beautiful fall day in the Hudson Valley. I snapped a photo of this couple walking down the trail, which became a great painting subject. This painting went out to my Hudson Valley Hues solo show at RiverWinds gallery before I had a chance to put it up on my website, and has sold at the show. Thank you, RiverWinds! The show will run until July 3 for anybody who has not yet had a chance to go see it. The gallery is at 172 Main Street, Beacon, NY. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Monday, 12-6pm, closed Tuesdays.

Hudson Highlands in Autumn

24×36″, Acrylic
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

I have painted this scene many times out on location in Beacon. It is where Fishkill Creek enters into the Hudson River at Madam Brett Park. Although beautiful in all seasons, the marsh and foliage blazes with warm color in Autumn. For that reason, I selected this scene to portray the “Red Orange” painting of my recent series, Hudson Valley Hues. The painting is currently available at RiverWinds Gallery (see link above), and will be offered at a special price only for the duration of the show.

View from Above Croton Dam

Posted by Jamie on November 3rd, 2014

20×15″, Acrylic on illustration board, custom framed
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

Come see this painting and 16 others that I just dropped off at RiverWinds Gallery, 172 Main Street, Beacon, New York. The opening reception is this Saturday, November 8, from 5-8pm. I’d love to see you there! Bring a friend and do some early holiday shopping. The show will remain up through the holiday season. If you can’t make it this Saturday, you can check out RiverWinds during their regular business hours. You can find directions and their hours on their website.

My friend Johanne and I went on a hunt to find out how folks were getting up to the top of the bridge over Croton Dam. We were surprised and delighted to find out that although there is very limited parking, there is an easy paved path and fantastic views from all angles. We went back with our paints and some more friends last Friday and had a wonderful day here, up on top of the world. The weather was picture-perfect, and the slight mist created by the wind and waterfalls kept my acrylics from drying out too fast! I have really fallen in love with this location, both from the bottom facing the dam, and from here at the top.

Frederic Church’s Tree in Miniature

Posted by Jamie on September 11th, 2014

4×2″, oil on canvas board, display easel included
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

I haven’t done many miniatures for awhile, and I find I’m really missing them! They are wonderful gift items, and make a beautiful display set on their miniature easels on a side table or desk. This is a painting I did on location at Hudson River School artist Frederic Church’s estate, Olana. This tree overlooks the Hudson River along one of the carriage roads. I’ve done a few paintings of this tree and just can’t seem to get enough of it! A lovely wooden display easel is included with the painting. No framing needed!

Overcast Day at Sunset Rock

Posted by Jamie on September 7th, 2014

5×7″, oil on linen panel, framed
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

Rain threatened on the day I ventured out to do this painting, but we hiked up to Newman’s Ledge anyway, and then settled in for lunch and some painting time at Sunset Rock. This was a favorite painting spot of the Hudson River School artists, and I think you can see why. Kaaterskill High Peak and Round Top mountains are in the distance, with North South Lake stretched out below. We figured we’d be able to spot the rain coming in from the west before it got to us, and we headed down the mountain when the front started moving in.

Here’s an image I took at the scene that day:

I’ll bet you were all expecting to see the conclusion of the oil painting I’ve been working on from this very vantage point! Well, I decided to meet an old friend for an early lunch today, so couldn’t get out on location in the morning to finish that one up. However, I was thinking that one very effective way to study the scene many more times would be to do it in several different media. While examining the vista on location yesterday morning, I was thinking about how I’d approach it in watercolor. This painting is the result, which I painted last night from a photo I’d taken earlier in the day.

I painted this with the new QoR watercolor paints by Golden Artist Colors. I sampled some from the Golden factory a couple of months ago, before they were sent out to stores, and subsequently bought a boatload of tubes when they became available. I just love these paints! They are really vibrant and intense, and most importantly, they rewet very easily when they dry out in my palette. For a multi-media artist who’s not doing watercolors every day and thus keeping the paints moist, they are ideal. Most of the painting was done with a #6 squirrel mop, and then I did the fine lines and details with a #6 sable round.

As for the oil painting, I’m hoping to go back on Friday morning and hopefully finish that one up. But if I’m not able to finish it then, it gives me a good excuse to return yet again to this amazing spot high above Kaaterskill Clove, and contemplate all the Hudson River School painters who stood there before me.

Bannerman Castle Glow

Posted by Jamie on December 11th, 2013

10×8″, in ornate gold frame with linen liner (frame included in price)
Acrylic on archival board
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

I’ve been working a lot lately on capturing glow with multiple layers of transparent color. This allows the light to bounce off the white of the painting support and through the pigment, rather than mixing color with opaque white paint to produce a tint. I felt that the way the strong light hit the castle wall in the late afternoon light would be most effectively rendered with the sparkle of transparent layering.

Sailing Past Storm King and Bannerman Island

Posted by Jamie on October 20th, 2013

5×7″, archival canvas covered hardboard panel
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

My husband and I took a boat tour of Bannerman Island a couple of months ago, and I took a ton of photos. It was a gorgeous day with beautiful cloud formations. This was painted from one of my photo references. Bannerman Island has fascinating castle ruins, and sits at the entrance to the Hudson Highlands out in the river. The tower showing in the water is Margaret Tower — one of the three that sit guard around the island.

Over the Edge at Kaaterskill Falls

Posted by Jamie on September 25th, 2013

7×5″, oils on archival linen panel, beautifully framed
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

Some scenes I paint over and over again and never get tired of them. Occasionally, I need a couple of years “off” from one of those vistas, and then I return with renewed appreciation for nature’s majesty. This famous scene at the top of Kaaterskill Falls is one of those magical spots. The Hudson River School painters frequented this spot too. When viewed from the top, it’s hard to believe that this little creek going over the edge is actually the top of the tallest waterfall in New York State!

Below is an image of the painting in progress. As you can see, somebody was taking advantage of a quiet afternoon to catch a little snooze on the rock across the creek. I was worried that he’d roll over in his sleep and go right off the edge!

Cruising Down the Hudson River

Posted by Jamie on July 9th, 2013

3×5″, acrylic on canvas panel, framed in a beautiful wide, gold, wood frame (included)

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

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went on a boat tour of Bannerman Island. Although I’ve been there several times to paint for Bannerman Island Gallery, I’d never gone on the tour before. It was my husband’s first time setting foot on the island! It was nice to relax and enjoy his company, and to spend the time taking photos instead of lugging painting equipment and feeling so rushed to complete something.

I took loads of pictures. It was a day with fabulous cloud formations and good light. While at the peak of the island, facing south toward the Hudson Highlands, this boat cruised along heading downriver, and the sun beamed a yellow pathway on the water. I painted this miniature from the photo I took at that moment.

It’s always tough to get a good image of a painting in a frame, but I tried! You can click this image to enlarge it a bit:

I spent a very chilly morning along the Hudson River last week. I did a lot of sketches and took a ton of photos. It was worth braving the cold! This tug was part of the river traffic that entertained me that morning, with the Palisades looming in the background, and the glistening fall foliage.

Hudson River View of Bannerman Castle

8×10, Acrylic on archival canvas board
Custom framing included
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This was painted from the boat dock during a recent trip out to Bannerman Island. Opportunities to go out to the island are so rare, and I truly cherish the painting time out there! The castle structures are exquisite. A winter storm brought down two large walls on the other side of this castle. 50% of the proceeds of the sale of this painting go to Bannerman Castle Trust for protection and maintenance of the castles on the island.

Fall Along the Hudson River with Mount Beacon

Posted by Jamie on October 27th, 2009

6×8″, Oils on canvas covered hardboard, framed
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This painting was done mostly on location, with a few tweaks in the studio to finish it up. It is a scene from Long Dock (Beacon Point Park) along the Hudson River. I loved the rusty-orange trees against the distant blues of Mt. Beacon, and the brighter greens of the foliage that hadn’t yet realized fall had arrived.

This is a scene that I’ve been wanting to paint for over three years, and I finally got around to it! It is a view of the Hudson River from Hyde Park, New York.

Hudson River Morning en plein air

Custom framed in a gold plein air style wood frame
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This painting was done on location at Boscobel Restoration. It is the famous overview of Constitution Marsh and the Hudson River. I set up my easel in the cool shade under a big tree along the bluff. I think I’ve painted from this spot in nearly every season and every size. It occurred to me that I hadn’t done an 8×16″ summer view of the scene, so here it is for the very first time!
