I keep revisiting the view of the Hudson River from the shore at Garrison's Landing in the Hudson Highland region of New York, and I can see that I'm not through painting it yet. Sometimes what triggers a new painting is another beautiful sunset or cloud formation I'm lucky enough to catch. Sometimes it's an earlier view that I've painted in a small size and now feel would look wonderful in another, usually larger, size. Sometimes it comes from cropping a section of an earlier painting and finding a whole new composition that intrigues me.
I've come to understand why some artists paint in series. This series is one that continues to develop over time rather than being painted one after the other to the exclusion of anything else. For me it's like having a wonderful visit with a beloved friend who I don't get to see every day.
