Hello Roger, Myrna, Pat and Alain,

Thank you so much for showing up at this thread. I have started it with much enthusiasm and faith, but also with some misgivings. Will it keep your interest all along? I know the works are superb; some of them really breathtaking, but, will I be able to post enough for you to enjoy their magnificence? Generally speaking, can I meet your expectations?

For now, let me show a wonderful "snapshot" of the Niagara Falls by Frederic Edwin Church, one of Thomas Cole's favorite disciples. He belonged to the "Second Generation" of the Hudson River School, emerged to prominence after Cole's premature death in 1848. In this thread I plan to showcase as many paintings of its founder as possible, but interspersed by works of other prominent members of the movement.

Miguel,

I for one will do my best to keep up and support the forum.

I note when doing art forums that many visit and few post. I'm happy with that as people don't always know what to say or, like me sometimes, don't have the time.

Some of us regulars will be right behind your efforts.

Roger
