Breaking out the classics for these Halloween cookies I made for Homespun (a cafe in Beacon). Nothing too scary here.

Newburgh Illuminated in June. Jon did one too, and he cut both of our lightbulbs into circles featuring the top parts of the designs (30" in diameter?). I kind of really like this now. I liked it before, and it made sense for that project, but it needed to stand as a new piece. Second time a round.

I took a short road trip this past Saturday up to Olana, "the 250-acre integrated environment of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church: Art, Architecture, Landscape, Farm and Views", a little over an hour's drive north from Beacon on a most idyllic mid-October day. Their website and these photos describe the place, and its history and beauty, better than I ever could. Imagine the days (1860) when an artist could actually buy such property and build such an estate, with its Persian-influenced architecture, high above the Hudson River surrounded by farmland and sweeping views. I didn't even make it inside for a house tour, just walked along the trails in the sunshine, eating apples.

A painting I made as a commissioned piece for a PR firm's seasonal card. Original is 8"x10" acrylic on canvas. There would have to be pumpkins in the truck's bed, I figured, or cider donuts. Then I realized the unseen driver and companion were most certainly, while enjoying the fall foliage, eating donuts and drinking cider.
