Olana Twilight

Here's another painting from this fall. Some "artist types" might recognize that lazy curve of the Hudson River as the view from the incomparable landscape painter of the 19th ct. Fredrick Church's home Olana. This 6"x12" in oil was painted just as the sun was retiring at twilight and there was a silvery glow bathing everything in diffuse light and giving me a very short time to capture it. I had a great time painting with my friend Jamie Grossman that day and I hope to return someday soon. Olana is a magical place for a landscape painter.
