    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 large painting of the Hudson River and Palisades was done as a commission, so it is already spoken for. You can see some available paintings I have of the Palisades and Hudson River by clicking the categories on the right side of my website, or click here to pull up my Palisade paintings, then scroll down to see them. Large paintings are very difficult to store, so I generally do them on a commission basis. I’m always happy to paint a special commission for you if you don’t see the size/scene/season you’re looking for!

This fabulous view of the northern gateway to the Hudson Highlands is one of my favorite Hudson River vistas. You can see Bannerman Island, with Storm King Mountain on the right, and Breakneck Ridge in Cold Spring on the left. I painted it from a photo, taken with a telephoto lens at a distance, which amplifies the atmospheric effects of the distance. Infused with the blues and greens of summer, it exudes tranquility. We can all use a bit of that! This is a large painting with an expansive feel, and would be a great centerpiece over a sofa.

Art to Go from the Hudson River Valley

Posted by Jamie on February 1st, 2017

170131 Varnished Paintings 435

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

The other day, I varnished ten of my new Hudson River and Hudson Valley paintings. They range from scenes overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades from New York City, to Peach Lake in Brewster, and Burger Hill in Rhinebeck, up to the ledges of Sunset Rock overlooking North South Lake (beloved Hudson River School site), and the Catskill Mountains. Some of these were started on location and finished up in the studio, while others were painted from my photos and other plein air paintings. They represent much of the terrain I’ve traversed over the past six months or so, in search of the best of what the Hudson Valley has to offer my muse.

The varnishing process takes time to set up, so I like to do large batches at a time. Usually that means about 17-20 paintings. Lately I’ve worked on some larger pieces, which has lowered my production in terms of quantity. Working on those big paintings has meant that the little ones tend to hang out in the studio longer, before they get photographed, varnished, and up on my website. As the weeks go by, they get more touchups and adjustments as I see them. I think this has led to an overall increase in quality. As I look at this set of paintings now, I’m really happy with what I’ve achieved in this batch. Here’s a photo that you can click on, and you can then zoom in on specific paintings.

The large, framed painting of the Hudson River and Palisades is already spoken for, and out the door. (I do miss that one already! But there is a smaller version of it available among the others, and I can always do another large one for you on a commission basis.) The smaller works above it are all available and in search of new homes. If you see one that interests you, send me off an email (or comment below), and I’ll get back to you with more information. They will all be posted individually as I adjust the single images. Some of those have already been posted with prices, and are visible by going to my home page and scrolling down.

This Hudson River and Palisades painting is another scene from Wave Hill Gardens in Riverdale, New York. I recently posted one I’d painted without the wall in the scene; this one contains the stone wall that is so indicative of the Wave Hill location. I wanted to see if I’d like it better with the wall or without, but ended up liking both of them!

I’ve been working on a large commissioned painting of this scene overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. Wave Hill is a public garden in Riverdale, New York. It has a striking view of the Palisades, and sits high above the river. Before embarking on the giant, I did a couple of small paintings of the view, including this one.

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. If you cannot make it to the opening, the gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 6pm.

This painting was done from a photo that I took at Innisfree Garden in Millbrook NY. It’s a scene that lends itself to many different approaches in light, color, and atmosphere. In this case, I used an analogous palette of mostly yellows, golds and earthy orange tones to cast a warm glow on an impending weather event, with a path to lead the eye into the painting.

Solo Exhibit at Who’s Cooking

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. The paintings do not always include the frame if they are being shipped (though some do), whereas all of those in the show are sold framed. It will state on each painting post if the frame is included when sold from the website. Framing is always available at an extra cost if a the frame is not included. Website prices include shipping charges, but not New York State Sales Tax. If you are within NYS, sales tax will also apply. If you have any questions, just email me – JamieWG(at)aol.com.

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.

Unbelievable as it may seem, this is my fifth artistic rendition of this tree overlooking the Hudson River at Olana. I think after this, I’ll just start to title them by number as a series! Like the others, I painted it on location at Olana, home of Hudson River School artist, Frederic Church.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Many years ago, I went sketching with a friend along the Hudson River in Newburgh. It was a cold winter day, so we found a parking lot with a river view, and sketched from our cars with the heat running! There were geese swimming in the frigid, but still open water. I always wanted to do a large painting of this scene, with the bright sunlight streaming from the south and reflecting in the water. I decided to do this painting in blues and violets to give it the cold winter feeling I had on that day, while adding the violets to keep the color harmony, yet expand the color range.

This was painted from private property overlooking the Hudson River in autumn on a hazy, overcast day. I ended up getting rained out, and finished it in the studio!

I wanted this Hudson River painting to depict the colors of a summer day on vacation, and to take me to that “happy place” with all the time in the world, and without cares. I think I captured the warm Caribbean feel I was after, while maintaining the strong sense of the Hudson that the mountains of the Hudson Highlands provide. The photo for this painting was taken out on the river near Beacon.

I did a few color studies for a large painting, and this one came out so beautifully that I decided to finish it off and offer it for sale. The colors are so much more subtle and beautiful in real life. I love this scene overlooking the Hudson River and Iona Island from Bear Mountain, and have painted it in many seasons and different mediums, at different times of day. I’ve painted it on location and in the studio. I just can’t seem to get enough of it!

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.

Over the weekend, I visited The Stone Church in Dover Plains with my husband. It was such an exciting location that I couldn’t wait to paint there. I went back today to capture this vantage point. I finished just as light started to come into the interior of the cave from above. I can see that this would be a great spot to explore from many angles, and at different times of day too. It could be my new fave painting spot!

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.

Dear Friends and Art-lovers,

I hope you can join me on Saturday, June 11 from 5-8pm at RiverWinds Gallery to celebrate the opening of my solo show, Hudson Valley Hues. I’ll have 11, 24×36″ paintings in the show, plus an assortment of new little ones just off the easel. I have been working on this series of paintings for two years. They are paintings of my favorite scenes throughout the Hudson River Valley. I’m so happy to finally be able to share and show them.

For those who cannot make it to the opening reception, the show will run from June 9 through July 3. The gallery is located at 172 Main Street in Beacon. Hours are Wednesday through Monday from 12-6pm. Please stop by and see the show if you can!

160412 Bannerman Castle 5x7 unframed 435

5×7″, acrylic on sealed paper, mounted to canvas panel
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This was painted as a fundraiser for Bannerman Castle Trust, and sold at their gala event a week or so ago. If you’ve never been to Bannerman Island and the castle ruins, you are in for a treat! You can take a boat trip and guided tour there. See their website for details by clicking here. It is one of those not-to-be-missed Hudson River adventures!
