Increase in Demand for Jean Swan Gordon Paintings

Hello from Harvest Gold!

We have an update for all of our customers regarding our collection of original Jean Swan Gordon paintings.

With the ever-growing popularity of Mrs. Gordon's beautiful paintings, we have been advised by her family that by Labor Day there will be a price increase to help keep up with that demand. 
Jean's paintings are among our very favorite here in the gallery, with their bold colors and beautiful lines. Each one invokes a strong sense of season and emotion, as Mrs. Gordon drew and painted flowers from her own gardens here in New England. 
There will be an $800 increase on the medium size (33"x26") paintings, and on the larger size (48"x34.5") the increase will be between $800 and $3000, depending on the painting. Lynda has already adjusted the prices on our website, but during the next 10 days we are offering our customers the original listing price. 
Stop by the gallery today to take another look at Jean's beautiful work, while it's still here. There are only a number of paintings left in her collection, and with the current popularity and demand we feel it safe to say that they won't be here for long. 
Over the years we have had many of Jean Swan Gordon's paintings in our gallery. We are grateful for having the opportunity to enjoy and share her art with numerous others. If you are as in love with these paintings as we are, don't wait.

Dog Days of Summer

Hello from Harvest Gold!

We are at the height of our beautiful summer here at the gallery, and embracing it, as we know of the chilly changes that lurk right around the corner. We've heard more than one customer comment this week how we are in the midst of "the dog days of summer". Why do we refer to this time as such? Is it because our dogs are so happy that they get to swim in the lake every afternoon?

"No, that's MY stick!"

In fact the 'Dog Days' of summer is an expression that derives from the early civilizations in North Africa. The weather turned hot and sultry coinciding with the rising every morning of the Orion's dog, the dog star Sirius. This association can also be traced to the Egyptians, and was recorded in early Greek poetry.

Our dogs are loving this weather. Between long naps under shady trees, trips to the ocean, picking green beans in the garden & chasing sticks into the lake, these pups have it made.

"What do you MEAN I had too many green beans?"

This past weekend while we were at the Rockland Maine Boats Homes & Harbors show we got to meet some of the amazing folks with the Pixel Fund, the non-profit organization that brought us our Scout all the way from Georgia back in February. The World Championship Boatyard Dog trials are held at this event every year, and a returning favorite is none other than Pixel himself, the brave little chihuahua that inspired the creation of the Pixel Fund. We had a nice visit with Scout's Maine foster family, and Scout absolutely loved the oceanside dog park in Rockland. 

The joy of a salty dog...

Stop by the gallery and see Captain & Scout enjoying these dog days of summer. 

How do your pups beat the heat this time of year?
