Traditional Sketches & Paintings From Imagination and Life
Friday, July 13, 2012
Traveling on the east coast recently, I enjoyed the shores of Connecticut and trips to the British art museum at Yale, researching original watercolor and gouache paintings. In addition kayaking in southern Maine, Berkshires in Massachusetts and New York's Hudson river artist oasis at Olana, the home of Fredrick Church. The views from the home's windows were composed by the painter as the large creative 'castle' took shape. I highly recommend the journey to this scenic estate.
