    ------------------------------------------ If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!


    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!

Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse on the Hudson River

Posted by Jamie on October 25th, 2017

171025 Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse 6x8 435

6×8″, oil on Ampersand Museum Gessoboard

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

I’ve been wanting to do more paintings of the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse (aka Tarrytown Lighthouse) for years, and finally got around to doing some this week. I spent two days exploring six or seven of the parks along the Hudson River around Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow to find some new vantage points and check out old ones. Now I have so many ideas for paintings that my head is spinning! This 6×8″ painting features the lighthouse, and also shows the Tappan Zee Bridge in the background, as well as the little bridge over to the lighthouse from the shore.

One thing I found out in this week’s research is that the lighthouse was originally about a half mile off shore. The shoreline was filled in for various developments, and now it’s just a footbridge away! There’s a ton of construction going on in the area now, as those old commercial developments have mostly been torn down to make way for new luxury high rise condominiums. The good news is that in the process, several gorgeous waterfront “Riverwalks” have sprung up, thanks in no small part to Scenic Hudson. Although the population density is increasing dramatically, so are the accessible views.

Spring has certainly sprung today. The forsythia is in bloom and the temperatures are soaring! This is one of my personal favorite springtime paintings, so I thought it appropriate to pull it up to the top in celebration. Below is the original post that I wrote when I did the painting.

After braving yesterday’s cold and windy temps up on a hillside overlooking the Hudson River, I decided to opt for something more springlike today, and pulled out some of my favorite spring photo references. The red barn and forsythia really caught my eye here, and the children playing nearby were an added bonus. I remember this day at Muscoot farm like it was yesterday. I was out painting there and these adorable children (clearly budding artists) came over with their mom to look at my painting. They couldn’t wait to get home after that so that they could paint! The painting I did that day sold last spring; I’m glad to have a bunch of photos to work from to paint this barn again with the bright yellow forsythia.

My palette for this painting was Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Lemon, Raw Sienna, Venetian Red, Ultramarine Blue and Cerulean Blue. I adore these Raymar linen panels. They have wonderful texture and always seem to give a painting that extra refined touch.

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.

Autumn View from Croton Dam

This was painted from the top of Croton Dam on a brilliant fall day, looking down upon the park and the bridge that crosses over the river. Below is an image you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the painting.


Croton Gorge Dam

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. Below is an image that you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the painting. Stay tuned for the view from the top, coming up in a few days.


Clouds Over the NYC Skyline

150612 Hudson River Commission 6x8 GA 435

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

Click here for a larger version of the scene, which is still available.

This painting was done as a commission, based on a larger painting I’d done previously. The client needed to be able to travel with this painting that he ordered as a gift, so the smaller size was a necessity. If you see something on my site that you love, but want an original in a larger or smaller size, I can do that for you! Painting it in acrylic made a shorter time frame possible too.

Winter Sunset on the Hudson

5×7″, oil on linen panel

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

My husband and I love to go on sunset expeditions with our cameras. This is Croton Point Park near sunset, facing south. The cold, bare winter trees provided an elegant contrast with the warmth of the colorful sunset. Their graceful silhouettes add so much to the composition, and allow for plenty of color to come through until the spring leaves fill out the forms and obscure the view.

Flower Path to the Gazebo

This painting began on a beautiful early fall day at Muscoot Farm. I was out with some friends looking for a spot to paint and we came upon this beautiful hillside with wildflowers and a gazebo. There were so many great vistas from this location that all three of us ended up painting from totally different vantage points and directions. I selected the view up the hill, where the path lead through fields of wildflowers and grasses in violets and deep yellow-orange hues, interspersed with bits of green. It was heaven. Here’s an image you can click on for a larger view of the painting:

I tried to make the most of the beautiful autumn days by starting as many paintings during that time as I could, even though I knew it would leave me with a huge pile to complete in the studio. After all, I’ll have all winter to do that! And believe me when I tell you that the pile is big. So, some of the paintings I post during the winter will bring you back to those warmer times when I started them out on location. We can all use a little of that warmth during the winter season! I’m not terribly fond of winter and so I don’t enjoy painting it. It’s not a memory I want to have hanging on my walls when the weather finally improves! Yet, the winter gives me that opportunity to play with new ideas, take my time finishing up the uncompleted works, and exploring other subject matter. You’ll be seeing some interesting things emerge. Stay tuned!

View from Above Croton Dam

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.

Afternoon in the Orchard

This painting was started on location in the apple orchard at Lasdon Arboretum in Somers, New York. I was about a half hour away from completion when thick clouds moved in and it started to rain! I had to pack up quickly and return home. Fortunately, I got a photo while the light was still good, and finished it from the photograph.
