I have always been deeply inspired by the Hudson River School of painters, a loosely organized group of nineteenth century artists who painted in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Their works were luminous, spiritual, and full of grandeur. My own work echoes such sentiments and celebrates beauty in nature as well. Many sites that the Hudson River School artists painted from are more pristine today than they were a hundred and fifty years ago.
This view, looking from West Point, shows the river flowing between the Highlands, Storm King on the left and Breakneck Ridge on the right. Calling it “Hudson Highlands Majesty”, I hope to invoke the sense of history and romance long associated with the Hudson.
