The Hudson River is beautiful.

This is a quick gouache sketch of the Hudson river at Coxsackie. I was trying to capture the reflection of the sky on the water, and the different saturation from the trees that were only a few hundred feet vs those that were much farther away. Painting moving water is particularly challenging, because it’s, well, moving. And the tides on the Hudson, even up here, swing many feet four times a day, so the angle of the dock was different by the time I finished the drawing.

This is a sweet little painting.

The actual drawing is small, 12” x 9”. I’m trying to work a small drawing with details as if it were a larger canvas.

Beautiful print

This is a truly excellent print. The aestehtics and craftsmanship and truly top-notch. I'm delighted to have it in my home.


Since this painting depicts an iconic area of where I went to college, I have a nostalgic draw to it. But beyond that, this is a gorgeous painting that looks realistic but also artistic and a bit surreal. Michael James Freedman is an extremely talented artist and I'm very glad to have one of his prints on my wall.

Happy Memories

I love this print, it is wonderful quality, vivid and detailed. It has a nice raised New College seal too. I will treasure it and enjoy it always. Thank you.

New College Palm Court Paintin

This painting captures the heart of a special place that New College students remember as the center of the universe. The painting is tropical, whimsical, dreamy and stirs fond memories.
