Garin Baker hosts a plein air painting weekend. Spring time along the Hudson River north of NYC is a special time of year. Ochre, purple and grey mountains transform as the yellows and greens work their way up from the river’s edge. The spring flowers bloom along its banks. The river is alive again with new life as the spawning season fills this estuary with warmth, color and light…and bass. Shed your winter’s gloom, raise your spirits and come feel the warmth of spring as we celebrate with our palette of colors along the Hudson River shoreline. Put up your easel and stick a pole in! Friends and family welcome. For lodging and accommodations please contact Garin Baker at
