Painters in Jail!

Hudson River Fellows at Jail Falls in Grafton Notch.
Special thanks to Randy Bennett of the Bethel Historical Society, for guiding some of the Hudson River Fellows and I to the beautiful Jail Falls in Grafton Notch. This waterfall is one of the finest in the White Mountains, and is very much unknown by tourists today. In the 19th Century, it was highly celebrated for its Beauty and unique geological characteristics.

Here is one testimonial:

" Erik, I just received your instructional video and think it is just wonderful! Words can not express how happy I am with my purchase. I will use this to help me with my plein air painting and then I look forward to attending one of your workshops. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge. :0)" -Carmen Drake Gordon (a facebook friend)
