Tagged: Hudson River

Returned from touring the eastern side of the Hudson River Valley. Went out to Stockbridge, Mass. again to give a workshop at the Norman Rockwell Museum, where I copied the saddle shoes above,  and managed a side trip to see Frederick Edwin Church’s estate near Hudson, NY called, Olana. Head swelling view from the property. Took a tour of the way ornate mansion  and saw a few sweet little paintings he did amoungst all the Orientalistic foo faw.

Knocked out the landscape in the middle and had to head down state about 2 hours to see a friend before it got dark. The day was spectacular and I lament that I didn’t have the time to make a drawing of the view from all sides of the mansion. Churh wrote that, “about an hour south of Hudson lies the center of the world, and I own it”.
