"Greenwood Lake Sunset" ~ 08/13/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom

"Greenwood Lake" This was a study done of one of the Hudson River School masters, Jasper Cropsey. I loved the detail, mood, atmosphere, lighting, and most of all the colors in this one. Enjoy!

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper." ~ Psalms 1: 1-3.

"Sailboats in the Sunset" ~ 08/10/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom


Collection of Charles Rogan ~ Perkasie, PA

"Sailboats in the Sunset" This is a study done from one of the original Hudson River School masters, Jasper Cropsey. I guess the reason I love the Hudson River School masters' work is that the color, light, atmosphere, and mood of their paintings are therapudic to me. They lift my spirit, they soothe my anxieties all with the purity of their work. Enjoy!

"Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Psalms 37:4

"Alone With God" ~ 08/01/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom

Sometimes when I am alone and emotions run ragged, and there's no hope in sight, I find comfort in this verse...

Isaiah 50:10 "Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God."
