Spuyten Duyvil

The view from my window includes Spuyten Duyvil (Spitting Devil), the place where the Harlem River creek joins the Hudson River. Facing west, we get great views of the Hudson river and the Palisades and spectacular sunsets.

Seven years ago this month, I painted a fairly representational version of the sun setting over the Palisades at Spuyten Duyvil.

Lately, I’ve become fascinated with the ice on the Harlem and Hudson Rivers and the reflection in the water of the little bridge that connects Riverdale in the Bronx with Upper Manhattan as well as the colorful sunsets. I’ve tried to capture all that in this latest painting.
