    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!





Henri the Hummer — a Summer Visitor

This little hummingbird visits my feeder in the summer. I named him Henri after Henri Matisse. I’ve been wanting to paint him ever since I snapped this photo last summer. I loved the reflected red light from the feeder on his chest. It’s been so cold here in the northeastern U.S. that I figured it was time for some warm summer memories, and did this painting of Henri.

My husband and I went for a hike and photo expedition in late fall along the Hudson River. I loved this scene with the kayak ramp, marsh, and Catskill Mountains in the background. When a kayaker came in to land and pulled her bright red kayak up onto the dock, I made sure to get the photo before she had a chance to take it away! I loved that pop of strong color in the scene.

This is a scene from way up on a hillside at Frederic Church’s Olana estate. I don’t come up here often; it’s a long way to hike with paints, but I always bring my camera! There were wonderful cloud patterns in the sky on this particular fall evening. I was happy to capture a few images from which to paint.

Love in the Big Apple — Perfect Valentine Gift!

I had a great time preparing surfaces with cut up old maps. I glued the map pieces to archival, acid free foam board with Lineco acid-free bookbinding adhesive, rolled it with a brayer, and weighted it down to set. Then I applied a couple of coats of Golden Matte Medium, mainly because I love the working properties of the surface once the matte medium is applied, and it will also help to seal and protect the maps.

I painted this New York City map with roses for Valentine’s Day. What could be better than Love in the Big Apple? If you’d like to commission a similar painting of any size with your own city and choice of flowers, please contact me at JamieWG@aol.com for details.

This painting can be popped right into a standard 5×7″ frame.

Figure Montage No 4

This montage was done in open studio, using iridescent and interference acrylics. It makes the painting hard to photograph due to the glimmering of the paint. It is a very challenging way to work because you never know what pose the model will take next! You can end up with an empty space on the panel, and a pose that doesn’t suit the space. Some of them work out compositionally and some don’t. I felt this was one of the lucky ones, where all the poses could work together. I love doing these. It’s so different from the other work I do, and gives me the opportunity to work outside of my box.

Autumn Over the Hudson from Bear Mountain

This was painted from a scenic drive on Bear Mountain. Facing upriver there’s a great view of Iona Island (which I’ve also painted many times), and downriver is this fabulous vista through the Hudson Highlands. The Appalachian Trail crosses the Hudson on this bridge. There were large boats and barges going by, and sailboats off in the distance, which I put into the painting as I saw them. With the autumn colors, it was truly a spectacular day. It’s taken me awhile to get around to taking the photo of the painting and posting it. But the good news is that by now the painting is dry and can be sent out to a new home!

There is a park along the Hudson River in Irvington, New York, which has nice views of the New York City skyline. A client suggested I check it out, so I went with my camera one extremely windy, cold autumn day. It certainly wasn’t the kind of day I’d want to be out painting along the river! However, there were wonderfully dramatic skies and choppy water reflecting light from the breaks in the clouds. The spray flew up in all directions, and I nearly got soaked out there just taking pictures! This painting was done from references obtained during that expedition.

The other day, I posted a painting done from Bear Mountain, overlooking this same view of Iona Island and the Hudson River. The challenge I faced on that one was the quickly changing light very early in the morning. I was so determined to capture the strong yellow glow before it vanished, that I went back the following day. I arrived very early and pulled out this small panel, covering it with the transparent yellow that washed the scene, and painting into that until the sun came up higher and the color again disappeared. Once that happened, I stopped and put it away so that I could finish it in the studio, and keep the concept intact. I tried to keep the painting as transparent as possible, using very little white to maximize the glow through the paint layers.

This painting was started early one morning up on Bear Mountain, overlooking the Hudson River and Iona Island. The strong, early morning like lit up the river, and the island and mountains were all silhouetted. As I worked and the morning wore on, that colorful, angled morning light gave way to a different scene. Much as I initially intended to hold onto what I started with, I found myself changing the character of the light for a different, though still beautiful interpretation of the scene. I went back the following day to finish it, and caught the barge and tug going by, as well as the freight trains crossing over the bridge from the island. The box cars provided some great pops of color!

Few scenes are more striking that the autumn colors from Boscobel, overlooking Constitution Marsh, and the Hudson River, with the downstream vista of the Hudson Highlands in the distance. I paint it a few times a year and it never gets old for me! This 18×24″ version was just finished up in the studio, since I was a little short on time out on location.

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!

Hudson River from Kingston

This is the view of the Hudson River as seen from Hasbrouck Park in Kingston. This spot was recently added to the Hudson River School Art Trail, as one of the places where the Hudson River School artists visited and painted. It features one of the enormous ships we sometimes see along the river. The ship gives some scale to the width of the river at that spot, and the height of my vantage point overlooking the scene. I also placed some sailboats near the ship as they passed by, so that viewers can get an idea of how massive that ship is!

This is a large oil painting done over a period of several days on location at the Boscobel Restoration in Fall, with some finishing touches completed in the studio. It is the famous view from the bluff above the Hudson River, overlooking Consitution Marsh. I’ve painted this scene many times in every season but winter! The marsh glows red in the fall and it’s a spectacular sight come late October.

I’ve recently sold two medium sized paintings done on location at Boscobel. This large fall scene is available, varnished and ready to ship, so I thought I’d bump it to the top. They do tend to get buried in the mountain here on my blog site after awhile! There are a couple of available 16×20″ Boscobel paintings too, plus an 18×24 and a few smaller ones.

The Many Faces of Olana

I like to believe that Frederic Church would have liked this concept of his home, Olana. This is one of those cases when the painting sold before I could get a decent image of it. Nevertheless, I thought it would be worth posting because I really want to do more of these monochrome-color compositions.

I began with a 9×12″ segment taped off for the centerpiece of the painting. I wandered around Olana, capturing scenes around the estate in shades of gray oil paint as they presented themselves. I figured that once I had the monochrome border sections done, I’d know what to paint for the colorful center to tie it all together.

I ended up painting all the black and white sections as Hudson River scenes. It made sense to use the brilliantly colored mansion as the centerpiece of the painting, set into the views of the Hudson River, just as Olana was the centerpiece of Frederic Church’s universe, surrounded by the gorgeous landscape and river vistas.

Here’s an image of it framed:

This painting is a commission just off the easel. I was so thrilled to receive the photo from this client of her dog in an action scene! It enabled me to put together my love of painting water with my love of painting animals. I also felt that the image displays much more personality than a typical pet-sitting-on-the-soft portrait. Sadly, this sweet dog, Maggie, passed away last year. The client wanted a holiday painting for her husband, done from his favorite photo of Maggie. This was the result, and she is thrilled.

Every fall brings with it the opportunity to paint Constitution Marsh on the Hudson River while it’s in the brief bright red stage. I try never to miss that chance! I never tire of this fall scene. I’ve painted it this time of year in every size from 5×7″ up to 24×36″, but it always appears fresh and exciting, and just as challenging each time!

I’d love it if you could come to the opening this Saturday night, November 8, from 5-8pm! You can find directions here, and a link to the Buone Feste show here.

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!

Come see this painting of mine and 20+ more at Bannerman Island Gallery, 150 Main Street, Beacon, New York. The opening reception for my show there is Saturday, November 8 (Beacon Second Saturday) from 5-7pm. I have a simultaneous opening at RiverWinds Gallery, just a block away at 172 Main Street, so you can get a 2-for-1 good time, and check out another 20 or so of my paintings at RiverWinds. I’ll be back and forth between the two from 5-7 on Saturday and hope some of you can make it there. Works can be purchased at the galleries or directly from my website — in case you can’t make it there on Saturday and don’t want that special painting to get away from you! It’s the perfect time for some early holiday shopping, so come on over.

About this painting:
I painted this during the winter, when all the blizzards, snowstorms, and ice storms in the Northeast got me thinking about summertime sails in Maine! I pulled out some of my photos that I took up in Bar Harbor and around Acadia National Park to get a color fix! I remember this sail out in Frenchman’s Bay at sunset so well. The blues and pinks were to die for, and they reflected off the water and anything white. This boat went by with all of its white sails hoisted. They became a rainbow of colors as the sun went down.

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.

This is one of those kinds of fall scenes I love to paint — with color, transparency, and reflections. It’s the type of subject that seems to draw me no matter where I am, but this time I happened to be at North South Lake. The early morning light showcased the transparency in the water in the foreground, but quickly gave way to sky reflections and windy turbulence. I went back a few times to finish the painting. It’s one of my favorites of the year!
