Name That Painter!
Ohhh the agony! There are just too many talented artists to choose from for my March Featured Artist. Well, time's a wastin', I'll have to nail it down and pick one - no, not that one yet... how about this one? No, that should be in May. Yes, I should do this one this month because I can visit that museum... this month... Okay I got it - here we go!
I'm taking you back to the early 1800's to a place in New York state (hehe - I'm not gonna make it too easy for you to google up in a jiffy - all you smartie pants out there!) This artist was born somewhere in New York in a town that was first settled around 37 years prior to his birth. But time was short lived there because he moved to another town in New York. There he spent the greater part of his childhood growing up. He must have frolicked and played along the large river and beautiful rolling hills where inspiration was born. A slice of one of his paintings is shown here. That's all I'm going to give you for now - until next week!
