While in Newport, I had another opportunity to visit the Newport Gallery of American Art. This Gallery features a wide range of work by the 19th century Hudson River School artist, William Trost Richards. He is my favorite artist and I am always excited to see his originals. I highly recommend this gallery to anyone interested in classic American art.
The sea is a constant source of fresh inspiration to paint. Every day displays scenes and effects that seem entirely new. I plan to have a new series of seascapes underway soon, even as I work to finish a couple autumn paintings begun in October. I know however, that once the winter’s snow arrives, I’ll be torn between painting snow and painting the sea. Too much wonder and too little time to paint it all. This is a fantastic problem to have.
