"Storm Clearing Over the Catskills" ~ A Painting a Day Hudson River School by Connie Tom

This was another intense study I did of Hudson River School master, Frederic Edwin Church's original. It is painted on a 24" x 36" gallery wrapped canvas. He, Albert Bierstadt, and Jasper Cropsey are my favorites of this first major art movement in America known as the Hudson River School, because of their dramatic lighting, mood and atmosphere. ~ Enjoy!
