Guts and Glory on the Delaware

When I was growing up in NYC, and visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the paintings I would linger at was Emanuel Leutze’s “Washington Crossing the Delaware.” So I knew what my clients were referring to when they told me they wanted to recreate this famous, heroic scene on the Delaware River- only this time with a Dodge Ram truck and a bevy of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Whatever you may think about the tastefulness of such a concept, you have to admit- you can’t get a much more American combo than pickup trucks and bikinis! In any case, I had a chance to spend some cold late Fall days scouting the beautiful Delaware, from Trenton all the way up to Narrowsburg, NY & PA. Truly a delight.
