This painting was inspired by a popular scenic spot on the Appalachian Trail overlooking the Bear Mountain Bridge on the Hudson River in upstate New York. Every year thousands of pilgrims hike the craggy mountain climb to Anthony’s Nose summit for sprawling, panoramic views of the Hudson Valley.

What Does “Made in America” Really Mean?!

Good question.

Here is what “Made in America” means to me.

It is not always the easiest path or the most profitable but I go to great lengths to source my products from vendors on American soil.

It’s important to me that each product that I offer is created sustainably by people who love their craft and who are compensated properly for their time and energy.

From the farmers growing the cotton, to the weavers, to the picture framers, to the printers I use to image my paintings and reproduce my prints.

No sweatshop labor here. All love. All American.

When you purchase products from my shop, I can confidently say thank you from literally hundreds of American families whose livelihoods your business supports.
