"River Crossing" ~ 16"x20" ~ A Painting A Day Hudson River School Landscapes by Connie Tom


This was another intense study I did of another Hudson River School master, J.W. Embury. This is a 16" x 20" oil painting on stretched canvas. I put much detailed brushwork in the grasses and foliage in the foreground and road, while leaving everything in the middle and background very foggy. Enjoy! ~Connie

"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed." ~ Romans 10:8-11.

Connie, this is such a beautiful composition! I love how the path draws you in and down to the water. Much like many places I've been to...
