"The Pounding Surf Against the Rocky Coast" ~ 2/16/09 A Painting A Day Hudson River School Landscapes by Connie Tom

"The Pounding Surf Against the Rocky Coast" is another intense study I have done of the revered Hudson River School master Frederic Edwin Church. There is something so fascinating to me about the ocean.... it's massiveness, I guess. Completely out of man's control. Always moving with a thousand little glints of reflected light. Intriguing to me just to sit and watch what it's going to do next with the changing of the tides, the lights, the weather, the time of day. Enjoy!

"Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous." ~ Psalms 112:1-4

"The Great White Throne" ~ 2/12/09 A Painting a Day Hudson River School Landscapes by Connie Tom

This is one of our many majestic scenes we have in America. "The Great White Throne" is located in Zion National Park, Utah looks like a flattop stool fit for giants and twoers above rugged rock precipes, while aspens aglow with sunlight glitter beneath it. Enjoy! ~Connie

"Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear." ~ Isaiah 59:1

"Golden Sunrise" ~ 20" x 16" A Painting a Day Hudson River School Luminous Landscapes by Connie Tom

There's nothing so mystical as the sunlight filtering through the atmosphere in an early morning sunrise on the lake. The fog is still hovering over the water and it's sooooo peaceful! Just the sounds of nature that you might hear...the rippling of water as a fish breaks the surface, a slight breeze in the air. ~ Enjoy!
