Olana visit in July

Photo of my friend, Linda, painting plein aire near the steps at Olana. The bank drops off sharply all the way down to the Hudson River. You can see the Catskills in the hazy distance. It was a very warm summer day and the first time I've ever painted there. It's a very popular spot for those of us that want to try our hand at painting it. This is the view that Frederic Church enjoyed everyday! It's a beautiful place to visit and you can take a guided tour of his home overlooking the Hudson River. Here's a link to the site.

That's my French resistance guerilla painter on the tripod and here's a photo of the painting I did that day.
