Northeastern Wilderness

We adore the wild lands of the Northeast, precious islands of grandeur and beauty— facing crashing surf on a barrier beach, painting at a mountain pass in snow squalls or perched on a quartzite ledge on a cliff. Weir Farm National Historic Site in Wilton Connecticut, home to James Weir, American Impressionist, has hosted each of us as Artists in Residence. We've taught at the Appalachian Mountain Club's cabin on 32 mile long Fire Island, New York State's only area designated as Federal Wilderness. Shawangunk cliffs in the Hudson Valley of New York, attract climbers from around the world and us. The White Mountains of New Hampshire foster fierce weather and host twisted, difficult trails. Our paintings reflect the ferocity of the Whites, where we've been known to paint in the shelter of a car.
