    "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 :-)"

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."

    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!

While out hiking in early spring, I came upon this stream with several arched trees extending from the shorelines over the water from either side. As the creek meandered, the shoreline trees formed arches through the various planes of the scene. I took a lot of photos to do a series of these arched tree forms, and hope to return soon to paint some of them on location. They present interesting compositional opportunities focused on the arches, and reflections in the distance, and/or transparency of the water as it nears the foreground.

This fabulous scene was painted from a photo I took on a friend’s balcony overlooking Candlewood Lake. There are 180 degree views, and I’ve done a number of paintings at different times of day from this spot, facing different directions. This is definitely one of my favorites!

I love these birch trees that surround North South Lake in the Catskills, which is one of the sites where the Hudson River School artists loved to visit and sketch. We went for a walk there recently on an overcast day, and the path made the perfect entry to the painting, framed by some of my favorite trees. I’ve been doing a lot more watercolor work lately. It lends itself to these atmospheric renderings and a loose approach where the paint can make its own statement. Below is an image you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the painting:

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.

I did a series of small paintings from high above Candlewood Lake in Sherman CT, in order to select one scene for a large commission. There is so much drama from up there! Cannot wait to go back and do more. Below is an image you can click for a larger, clearer view of the painting.

This painting features the fabulous view from the hills above Garrison, looking over West Point, and north through the Hudson Highlands to Bannerman Island. It is a stunning vista at any time of day, but sunsets are magical!

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!

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.

Sunset Rock was a favorite destination of many of the Hudson River School artists. It’s long been one of my own favorite locations as well. This western view overlooking North South Lake is well known, but the south-facing view is equally engaging.

Below you can see a photo of the painting in progress on location. It sometimes takes awhile for me to get paintings photographed and up on my website; in this case, the painting sold before I had a chance to post it here.

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!

New Paintings at Who’s Cooking

I’ve recently hung an exhibit of some of my waterfall paintings at Who’s Cooking, 14 Front Street, NY. Waterfalls are one of my passions as a painter. In fact, I’ve done so many waterfall paintings that I had to leave over half of them home! Most (if not all) of these were painted on location, and feature waterfalls within striking distance of the Hudson Valley. Hanging the show made me eager for spring to arrive, when waterfalls are at their peak from spring rains and melting snow.

I’ll have paintings at Who’s Cooking until the spring, and will switch them out every month or so to provide new shows for customers and visitors. The waterfall paintings will be there for a few more weeks. If you keep coming back from time to time, you’ll not only get to see new art exhibits, 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, I brought home grilled salmon and asparagus. 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:

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.

This painting features an expansive vista overlooking Candlewood Lake in Connecticut. There were long lake views in both directi161114-birds-eye-view-6x9-ac-600ons, and a western, sunset exposure to boot. I took so many photos when I was there, and can’t wait to do more paintings from them during the winter. I’ll return for some plein air versions when the weather warms up again. I’m calling this one Bird’s Eye View, but they could probably all have that title, with views in both directions that seem to go on forever.

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:

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.

This drawing is one of a series of three trees, all done in the same sepia tones. The other two will be posted over the next two days. They can be purchased individually, or subtract 20% if you’d like to have all three to hang as a triptych. They are framed with identical ivory mats and gorgeous custom gold frames, and make a beautiful grouping in a classic style.

This weathered pine leans over North South Lake, nestled in the Catskill Mountains. I loved its character, and the opportunity to draw in the company of friends on a beautiful day by the lake.

This drawing is one of a series of three trees, all done in the same sepia tones. One was posted yesterday, and the final one will be posted tomorrow. They can be purchased individually, or subtract 20% if you’d like to have all three to hang as a triptych. They are framed with identical ivory mats and gorgeous custom gold frames, and make a beautiful grouping in a classic style.

A few days ago, I posted a painting of a tree from Olana, titled Cedar Overlooking the Hudson. This is a drawing I did of the same tree. As I said previously, I can’t seem to get enough of this one!

I went painting with a group of artist friends in the town of Wappingers Falls. There were charming old houses all around. I settled into a shady spot close to my buddies, and did this watercolor of one of the classic village homes.

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. Below is an image you can click on for a slightly larger view of the painting.

I had this cheery, red visitor in my yard. Cardinals are impossible to resist in any setting or season! The cherry and gold framing is included in the price of this painting, since it’s so difficult to find nice oval frames that can fit a particular painting! For these framed bird portraits, I cut the panels to fit the frames before I painted them!

This stunning Blackburnian Warbler showed up during a birdwalk this summer. I was lucky enough to get a great photo of him to use as a reference for this painting. I am loving these little birdies in the cherry/gold, oval frames!
