In Gratitude for Steve Doherty
In Gratitude for
We first met Steve when we were living on the Hudson River in the tiny hamlet of Garrison, New York, in 1983. He drove up from his home in Croton-on-Hudson to attend our community's annual on-location paint-out and auction at the Garrison Art Center at Garrison’s Landing. I did not expect that the Editor-in-Chief of American Artist magazine would bother with our modest little show with so much going on in New York City, but plein air events were a fairly new idea back then, and he was curious about it. One draw might have been that Garrison Landing is right on the river in the very heart of the famed scenic Hudson Highlands, directly across from West Point Military Academy.
