Boscobel and the Hudson River School of Art

Happy New Year

Last week we toured the Boscobel Federalist Mansion near Cold Spring, New York. Below is the view from its front lawn overlooking the Hudson River, …the i-Phone capture reminiscent of a genre of Early American Art from the Hudson River School.   Information on this impressive site can be found at

That Reminds Me of …Something! Hmmm

A while ago, I came across this curious gemstone-like proto-sand grain, lying by the ocean on Island Beach State Park in NJ.

Last week …I saw something that reminded of this while lying on the couch at home!

Orientated correctly, below, it is seen as one of the ceiling accent lights.

If nothing else, this exercise simply brought to my attention that I need to repaint the ceiling …soon!  😦
