Paintings of the Catskill Mountains, Following in the Footsteps of the Hudson River School Painters

This past June me and my partner Erik Koeppel traveled to the historic Catskill Mountains, to paint many locations that were popular among the 19th Century Hudson River School artists. We had a marvelous time , here are some of the images of my works created from the trip!

18 day Artist trip to The Catskills , The Adirondacks , NYC and Gettysburg

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! 13332976_10153564815477124_8352970577764619813_n

Here I am working on my demo painting from the workshop , I always like to have my drawing on had has you can see.IMG_3918

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. 13428007_1131444613580946_1414920297036196599_n

“Pictures serene and sublime” New Exhibit of Lauren Sansaricq and Erik Koeppel’s work!

Pictures Serene and Sublime: Traditional White Mountain Art Recaptured

July 6 through August 31, 2013
— Mason House

During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, numerous artists (including many from the so-called Hudson River School) captured the awe-inspiring summits and verdant glens in the White Mountain region of northern New Hampshire and western Maine.  Including many of these early landscapes, this exhibit also highlights the work of Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq, nationally-recognized plein air artists who create masterful works in the Hudson River style based on their love for the expressive potentials of traditional representation.  The eight-week exhibition will feature a variety of White Mountain landscapes, including several from the collection of the Jackson (NH) Historical Society.  The contemporary works by artists Koeppel and Sansaricq will be available for purchase.  (All sales will benefit the Bethel Historical Society.)
Opening on Saturday July 6 at the Bethel Main Historical Society’s Museum.
All Are Welcome!
