Bucks County Paintings / New Hope, PA

The paintings above are from the Bucks County area and New Hope. I have spent much of the time during my years at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia painting in beautiful Bucks County. I love the New Hope School, Daniel Garber, Edward Redfield, John Follinsbee, George Sotter, Lathrop, and many others. Many of my paintings were done at the same Quarries that Garber painted in New Jersey. The two quarry paintings above were painted from Bowmans Hill looking over the river valley towards Lambertville NJ. I’ve painted another one of the same view in the winter which sold at Rago’s Auction (of Antiques Roadshow ) last year for $4200. including buyers premium. The water scenes are of the Delaware River painted at Washingtons Crossing and the backyard of my friend Dorothy’s house in New Hope. I continue to travel to Bucks County, to see my friends and to paint the inspiring landscape of the area that feels so much like home to me.
