    "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."

    "Your paintings of my beloved Hudson Valley are stunning! I've always loved Hudson River paintings, and can't believe that I've found someone who is following in the great tradition of Cropsey and company! "

    "We received your painting yesterday and it's really very beautiful. Thank you again very much."

    "Your beautiful "Autumn at Rockwood" arrived in perfect condition two days ago. It is even more lovely in person than I ever could have imagined. Thank you so much for your artistry and your many kindnesses to me..... I will treasure both of my paintings very much ..."

    "I'm more than happy, I'm thrilled!"

    "I just wanted to let you know that I received [the painting] today! It is beautiful, thank you so much:)"

    "Your [miniature] Caillebotte arrived today. Wow, it's WAY better seeing it in person than viewing an image/photo of it. Spectacular..... Thank you so much!!"

    "It's beautiful. Thank you so much!"

    "Oh, Jamie! It is fabulous!!!!!!! I love it!"

    "Hi Jamie! The beautiful paintings arrived safe and sound this afternoon. I love them! (Boy you don't mess around with packing them ;) Thank you."

    "The East from Hunter Mountain painting arrived the other day. It made it through the snow and looks great. Thanks for everything."

    "Jamie, my wife and I love it. Thank you and great work. It was difficult trying to figure out a special gift for them......I'm very happy that I reached out to you. I know they will love the painting and the special touch you did with the card! "

    "Wow, it looks AMAZING! They are going to love it. I love the name too. Perfect. ... Thanks again!"

    "Your lovely painting of a sweet bird, framed beautifully, arrived last week.... I just adore it!!... I see it and injoy its beauty every day! Thank you so much!"

    "The painting is beautiful! I love it! "

    "Just a quick note to let you know your [miniature] Monet arrived in perfect condition. It looks fabulous!!! Thank you again so much."

    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!

Mini Monet — Houses of Parliament at Sunset

Posted by Jamie on January 8th, 2016

SAMSUNG CSC

1 1/4 x 1 1/2″, acrylic on bristol board
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

These miniature paintings, which I call “Jamie’s Jewels”, are usually done on a commission basis. In spite of the diminutive size, they are done under magnification, and are very time consuming. After being painted, they are varnished, framed, photographed, and sold with the miniature easel included. They are shipped in little gold gift boxes with gold bows, and make the ideal present for that Special Someone! This one is a miniature copy of one of Monet’s many beautiful renderings of the Houses of Parliament.

Miniature Painting — Paris Street Scene after Caillebotte

Posted by Jamie on November 25th, 2015

SAMSUNG CSC

3″ across, acrylic on 100% rag board

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

Gustave Caillebotte was a French painter who lived from 1848-1894. He is considered one of the painters of the French Impressionist school, though looking at his work, one would never think that! His paintings are more firmly rooted in realism, with its harder edges and more muted color schemes than so many of his contemporaries. In addition to being a wonderful painter, Caillebotte had a law degree with a license to practice, and was also an engineer. Talk about a multi-talented individual!

I was commissioned to do this miniature version of Caillebotte’s 7 foot by 9 foot Paris street scene. Online images of the painting appeared quite cool in color, but then the client sent me a photo he took of the painting in a museum. That image showed many more ochres and browns. I preferred that slightly warmer interpretation, and went for something in between in my own version.

Scaling down an enormous, mural-like painting to 3″ across is no easy task. I imagined that the actual painting in real life is much more painterly than when it’s shrunk down to a tiny fraction of its size, as we see on a computer screen. Aside from the technical difficulties of putting in all that detail in a tiny painting, it would lose much of its character. It required considerable editing to keep enough detail in there without overwhelming the small space. I’d like to believe I successfully met that challenge!

My miniature works are all sent in gold gift boxes with table easels for a curio cabinet or side table, and most are framed too. (See below.) They are usually done as commissions, but occasionally I have one on hand, ready to go to a new home. They make fabulous gift items. Here are images of some of my miniature originals. These three are spoken for, but I’d be happy to do one for you!

This was painted from a Hudson River overlook near the Bear Mountain Bridge. My husband and I went on a photo expedition and were treated to a great sunset, which made it worth putting up with freezing cold temperatures! I got a bunch of great photos to work from during the winter, so stay tuned!

Hudson River School Sunset 2 — Jamie’s Jewels

(Quarter in the photo is for size reference!)

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

Sunsets are always special times at Olana, estate of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. He loved to paint along this ridge below his home, which faces due west across the Hudson River. The Catskill Mountains form the skyline as the sun’s descending rays cascade across the sky and landscape. No two sunsets are alike here!

This is the second of my mini Hudson River School Sunset series, which features locations where the Hudson River School artists painted. Some of these sites are along the Hudson River School Art Trail. Others are sites where Cole, Church, Durand and others painted, but due to difficult access, limited parking, or some other reason, they are not on the Art Trail registry.

These miniatures are perfect gift items. They will arrive in gold gift boxes, already framed in these ornate gold miniature frames as shown. The little black easels are also included, so you can set them right out in a favorite spot. Everybody has a place for a little jewel, or a collection of them! I also do commissions of these miniature pieces, so if you have a favorite scene you’d like to have as a miniature painting, let me know.

I’ve been doing commissions like crazy through this holiday season, but I finally had time to do a few of my “Jamie’s Jewels” miniatures — something I’ve not done for a really long time! I thought it would be fun to embark on a mini Hudson River School Sunset series. They will feature locations where the Hudson River School artists painted. Some of these sites are along the Hudson River School Art Trail. Others are sites where Cole, Church, Durand and others did paint, but due to difficult access or some other reason, they are not on the Art Trail registry.

This panoramic sunset miniature painting of the Hudson Highlands, as seen from Cold Spring, was painted on location on a miniature stretched canvas. I painted the sides too, so it looks perfect set on a miniature easel on a desk or side table. The wooden display easel is included in the price of the painting. It’s a perfect gift item for somebody who loves the Hudson River! Storm King Mountain is on the left, with Little Stony Point jutting out into the river, and Breakneck Ridge on the right.

Here is an image you can click on for a slightly larger version of the painting:

Frederic Church’s Tree in Miniature

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!

Cruising Down the Hudson River

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:

Palisades and the Hudson River in Miniature

Posted by Jamie on May 15th, 2013

3×5″, Acrylic on rag board, beautifully framed (Size with frame is about 6×8″.)
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This painting is available for purchase at Adams Fairacre Farm in Newburgh NY. I have 20 paintings on display there as a United Way fundraiser until the end of December. You can see the paintings, help United Way, do some holiday shopping, and buy your fresh produce and groceries all at the same time!

I had a beautiful, gold wood frame for a 3×5″ painting, and decided to do this scene of sailboats out on the Hudson River, below the Palisade Cliffs. There is a lovely, late day glow above the cliff line past the horizon, and soft fall colors abound in the foreground tree, distant hillside, and water reflections. The image above was taken in daylight, so the color is much cooler. The image below was taken with warmer indoor lighting at night, so you can see how much the color changes depending on the room lighting at the time. It sure does make image adjustment a challenge!

I took a quick cellphone snapshot of the painting in the frame (below), but hopefully you can at least get an idea of how lovely this frame is. It looks great on a small table easel. I have also included hanging hardware, in case you have a special, small wall space that you want to brighten up. It would make a great Father’s Day gift for that Dad who loves sailing!

Spring Morning at Boscobel Miniature plein air

2×4″, Acrylic on canvas panel
Miniature easel included with painting

Today I went to paint Cherry Blossoms at Boscobel. It is an annual ritual for me, and I look forward to it all winter. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I arrived on the scene only to find that the Cherry Blossoms had come and gone in the past two weeks! I guess the wind and rain a few days ago brought down whatever was on the trees. They were all green leaves, with pink petals strewn on the ground.

I wasn’t going to let a beautiful day go to waste though! There wasn’t much of the morning light left, so I pulled out this tiny panel, pulled up a chair along the bluff overlooking the Hudson River, and did one of my “Jamie’s Jewels Miniature Gems” paintings to catch what I could of the morning light over Constitution Marsh. In the afternoon, the marsh darkens and cools, and the contrast between land and water increases as the sun shifts to the west. You can see that already starting to happen in the scene behind the painting, though I think there must have also been a cloud obscuring the light from the marsh area when I snapped this picture!

I’ll be getting up a better image of this one in the days to come. I am just so thrilled that my image uploader on this blog seems to be working again, so even though I only have this little image that I snapped with my cellphone camera, I just had to post it! I do have quite a backlog here to photograph and get up on my site. Thank you for coming back to look at my work. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to show it, but there will be a lot more coming now that the site is running again.

I have such a wonderful time painting these little miniatures! This one was painted on location at Olana, former home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. It was another beautiful day overlooking the mighty Hudson, which has inspired artists for generations. It was painted in a completely different way than the oil sketch from the same location, which I posted yesterday. There is no one “right way” to do things when it comes to painting!

This miniature painting was done on location as a color study for the larger painting that I posted yesterday. I had done it on nice Canson board and was so pleased with the way it turned out that I varnished it and edged it in gold to set on this miniature easel. It’s a charmer!

Here is a view of the painting from the side, to better show the gold edging:

This inquisitive giraffe was painted from one of the photos I took this past week at the Bronx Zoo. (You can see my sketches of the giraffes done at the zoo at this link.) I’ve really fallen in love with their beautifully expressive faces and graceful movements. Maybe I’ll do a few larger paintings of them too. They sure do seem to fit this tall format!

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.

I was painting by a pond one day and these adorable ducks were following me around everywhere! They posed for a number of fabulous photos, which begged to be painted. I thought this one would make a great holiday gift, so I painted it as a long format miniature. It can be set on its easel on a tabletop or mantle, or hung on a wall. Since it’s on gallery wrapped canvas and painted on all sides, it doesn’t need a frame.

Backlit Meadow in Fall Miniature

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

This painting is a miniature version of the one I posted yesterday. Watercolorist David Taylor got me into doing these tiny watercolor sketches as quick-captures of a scene, or to warm up before embarking on a larger version. They give the artist a chance to test drive some ideas and different compositions, without taking up a huge amount of time. If something’s not going to work, better to find out with less time invested! It also lets us explore ways of making improvements and testing color combinations. I’ve become quite hooked on these! They look charming matted and framed, and hung on a wall or set on a little table easel.

I did a series of small watercolor paintings from Olana over the past week. The home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church is a place near and dear to my heart. I’ve been wanting to paint this hillside view toward Mount Merino for a long time! It was done from one of the carriage roads on the property. I was drawn to the way the near hillside is illuminated in the sunlight, framed by Mount Merino behind it.

This painting has been double matted so that you can pop it into any standard 5×7″ frame.

These miniatures are so difficult and time consuming that I only do them on a commission basis. It’s a labor of love! If you either have a favorite painting by a Master in mind or would like me to choose one for you as a commission, you can email me at JamieWG@aol.com.

The image above is probably showing this painting at larger than real life on your screen! This is postage stamp size. The painting itself is about 1.25×1.75″. The quarter is there for size reference. I love Tolouse-Lautrec, and it so much fun to do these Micro Master miniature versions! I had to do some editing and use my own artistic license for this teeny tiny size. For instance, I’d never have been able to do the lettering that was on the painting in this itty bitty format!

These tiny master renditions are generally done only on a commission basis, so if you’ve got one in mind that you’d like to order, just drop me an email at JamieWG@aol.com.

The quarter in the image above is to show you how tiny this painting is! I think this is the most challenging miniature I’ve done to date, though it was also really fun to work on this!
