I just returned home from a wonderful trip to The Catskills , The Adirondacks , NYC and Gettysburg with my partner Erik Koeppel. The first stop was NYC , where I taught a plein air workshop in Central Park , through The Grand Central Atelier. Here is a photo of the class at Gapstow Bridge , which is such a beautiful spot. The class was actually full with 12 students!
Here I am working on my demo painting from the workshop , I always like to have my drawing on had has you can see.
We then headed down to Gettysburg P.A. we we both participated in The History Meets The Arts Show. Here is some of my work from the show:
“Early Morning on The Hudson River” 12 x 18 in. Sold
“On the Beaten Path” 11 x 14in.
“Scene of Sunset” 6 x 11 in. Sold
“Le lever de la lune” 16 x 20 in.
Here are some photos of the event.
After Gettysburg , we then journeyed to one of our favorite places in the world , The Clove in The Catskill mountains. These mountains were home to one of the best movements in landscape painting , The Hudson River School. Their is nothing like visiting the same spots that Thomas Cole , Sanford Gifford , and Asher B Durand had spent time painting.
This time we were fortunate to paint at Artist’s Seat in Onteora Park, Inspiration Point , Twilght Park and Kaaterskill Falls. Below is a photo of all of my paintings made on the trip, all works in progress of course.
Next we went to The Adirondacks! To attend Eric Rhoad’s The Publishers Invitational. Here are some photos from there.
There i am working in the lower left corner, what beautiful landscape.
Here I am working on my little painting.
And here is all the Plein Air Invitational Attendees!
We had a ball ! Another fun productive trip. Stay tuned for the finished works….
