Hudson River School Exhibit

The sun is out and spring is here! It's time to get psyched for landscape painting season. There is a great collection of Hudson River School paintings on view at the New York Historical Society right now. The exhibit ends on March 25 this week so I ran up there this morning to check them out. It is so amazing to see them in person! This Bierstadt is freakin huge - it's 10 feet wide!!!! So amazing.
