Photos from my Fruitlands Museum Lecture

Just sharing some photos from my recent lecture at the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA. Their current exhibition, Hidden Hudson, is a great show that I'd recommend to anyone who likes Hudson River School painting. In the photos above, the paintings on the easels are mine, and the surrounding exhibition is 19th c. American Landscape paintings. The exhibit includes Thomas Cole. Jaspar Cropsey, Asher B. Durand, and many other masters.

These are some of  the paintings I brought to discuss:

Erik Koeppel "Mt. Chocorua: 12 x 20 inches Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel "Emerald Pool" 30 x 24 inches. Oil on panel
I also brought numerous sketchbooks and outdoor painted studies for discussion. It was a fun talk, and thank you to the Fruitlands Museum for having me.

Thanks for reading!

P.S. I've heard from the publisher that my 2nd DVD is not far from completion. Here's the 1st one:



  • Composition Sketch
  • Outdoor Plein Air Study
  • Outdoor Tree at Sunset Study
  • Glazing Demonstration
  • Studio Painting
  • Interview with Fine Art Connoisseur Publisher, B. Eric Rhoads
  • Exhibit of Koeppel paintings
  • 9:37 run time (hours)


  1. Can't wait to get your second DVD. You continue to amaze us all!

  2. You rule Erik. I wish I would have been there.
    I'm looking forward for the second DVD.
