To celebrate the four hundredth anniversary of Henry Hudson discovering his namesake river,
The Thomas Cole National Historic Site at Cedar Grove held a benefit on the fourth of July.
Geoff designed and built a large frame both to capture a living hudson river landscape, and to be used as a photo-op for guests.

Geoff donated his services to design the event as well, held on the beautiful property of Dick May and Lisa Fox Martin in Catskill.

Design included the selection of patriotic red and white striped table cloths, white chairs, and in classic clay pots, bright red geraniums donated by Story's in Palenville.

Geoff loaned his giant 48 star flag for the decor in the tent...

As the moon rises over the Hudson, a scottish bagpipe band played patriotic songs before the rocket's red glare began sparkling above Catskill!

Happy Independence Day!!
