Loon chick in Middle Bay Kezar Lake

Who knew that the baby loon really does ride on the back of its mother?  I found out the other day, two weeks ago when I met these two in our backyard at Kezar Lake in Center Lovell, Maine. I've had a great time watching them this summer and thought you might like to see these beautiful birds!

Here the daddy loon showed up with dinner!  The two have been fishing and feeding all day everyday now.

He is very protective of his family.  See how he is steering them away from the motor boat.

I was happy to see he was still alive after the weekend that I just had to take another photo!

Mom and chick doing well.

Pops once again watching out for them.

Eland Brothers Art at Harvest Gold Gallery

Eland brothers, Ric and Bill are showing their individual and collaborative sculptures at Harvest Gold Gallery now through Columbus Day.  The two are artistically gifted each with their own style and particular mediums.   From different careers in life the two have come together in art.

Ric, currently residing in Brownfield, began carving wood 25 years ago. He has become a master of carving wood into imperative wildlife art sculpture.   Through the beauty of natural wood grains he compliments the essence of the subject matter.  The gallery is showing a three special aquatic pieces including a Hammer Head Shark, Sea Turtle, and 3 Tropical fish.   Ric has a very personal understanding of the value of life for all living creatures.  As an artist he feels strongly that his work should reflect the need of mankind to interact with the natural environment and help preserve wild life in all forms.  He is a member of the National Wildlife Federation and the Audubon Society.

Bill Eland worked in creating stainless steel parts for airplanes as his first career.  He now lives in Harrison Maine and has turned his skills into more artistic creations.  He is exhibiting a collection of “Calder like” mobiles in stainless steel at Harvest Gold Gallery.  His humor shows in the title 1951 a stainless steel mobile inspired by discovery of boomerang flight.  It reminds us of StarTrek!  It’s easy to see the influence of the aeronautics world.

Together the two brothers have combined their talents and created two unique representational pieces in stainless steel.  One, a supersized dragonfly sits perched on a thin leaf atop a granite block, standing over 3 feet tall.  The second, a bonsi tree with over 300 leaves grows out of granite stone with the roots hugging it for support.  The stone had to be dried for over 2 years so no moisture would disrupt the welding process. 

Amazing creations by Maine artists at the Harvest Gold Gallery can be enjoyed in air-conditioned comfort daily.  Located on Route 5 in Center Lovell the gallery lives up to the award from Yankee Magazines Best Gallery with a view, In and out!  207-925-6505 www.harvestgoldgallery.com.
