His media are pastel and oils. The scenes which he paints on-site, plein-aire, are generally located between Saugerties and New Paltz along New York State’s Hudson River. He frequently paints on-site at Olana, the residence of Frederick Church. Anyone who has visited Olana will remember the awe-inspiring juxtaposition of sun and clouds as storms blow up the valley and mix with sunbeams streaming through breaks in the sky. Or perhaps the visitor has been there on a late summer day as haze, created by the sweltering sun, lifts off the river and lazily rises but never covers the tops of the surrounding Catskill Mountains.
