New Studio in Jackson, NH!

Sorry for the hiatus while Lauren and I were moving our studio to Jackson, NH in the beautiful White Mountains. New address info is on my website 

Here are some great historic paintings of the White Mts.:
Albert Bierstadt, Mt. Chocorua from Conway, NH  
Asher B. Durand, Mt. Washington from Intervale, NH
Albert Bierstadt, Moat Mts. with Cathedral and White Horse Ledges
Sanford Gifford, Mt. Washington
Thomas Cole, Crawford Notch
....and all these spots are within 30min of my new studio! I'm going to be having workshops here next summer, and also the Hudson River Fellowship will be held here hosted by the Grand Central Academy, and the Jackson Historical Society.

Here's one of my paintings from a similar spot to the above Durand painting:

Erik Koeppel, Mt. Washington from Intervale, NH, 24 x 34 inches, oil on panel

Thanks for reading!

White Mountain Winter Landscape Paintings

I find it too chilly to do precise winter paintings outdoors, but love to make winter paintings by drawing outdoors and then painting the subject from memory in the studio. Here are four winter paintings I made based on drawings from my December visit to the White Mountains in New Hampshire where I am preparing to move my studio this month:

Erik Koeppel, Moat Mts. and Whitehorse Ledge (Saco River in the foreground)

Erik Koeppel, Mt. Washington

Erik Koeppel, Mt. Chocorua

Erik Koeppel, The Wildcat River (In Jackson, NH) 

I don't recall the exact sizes, because I left the paintings in NH to dry. They're all oil on panel, and around postcard sized.

Thanks for reading.
