Olana is the Victorian home of Frederick Church, a 19th c. landscape artist credited with the founding of the Hudson River School of painting. This painting is one view of the many panoramic sights that can be seen from this hilltop monument. The house is open to the public and a fascinating way to spend 2-3 hours. Bring your paints. I painted this sitting hunkered down on a bench in the damp New York winter.
