Full House Hypnotized by Muse at Koeppel Lecture

Yesterday I had a very enjoyable afternoon presenting my lecture, The Epic View: A Revival of the Hudson River School  at the New Hampshire Antiques Co-op. I spoke about the journey that I've taken to arrive at painting in the historic mode, and the philosophy that is behind this kind of painting. Special thanks to the Hackler family for hosting and promoting the lecture, and to everyone who attended. I appreciate your engagement with the talk, and enjoyed the couple hours of questions that followed!

Here are some of my notes for those who missed the event (I think you can read them if you save the file and zoom in)

Lauren Sansaricq sold a painting too!

We had a lovely time at this event, and if you missed it, I hope you'll join me and Bob Cotrell for my next lecture at the Wild Land: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Landscape Painting where I'll talk about everything that I love about Thomas Cole, and how he inspired historic American painting as well as my own work, and the current revival of traditional landscape painting. The event will be held at the Keene State College, Thorne Sagendorph Gallery on the evening of Thursday, June 28. Please email the gallery for details by clicking here

I'll also have some paintings on view at that exhibition. More to follow.

Here are some of my paintings still on exhibition at the NHAC:
