Summer is truly coming to a close with the first day of fall looming ahead. The nights are chilly and, if you look around, leaves are starting to change. Although the excitement of the summer is winding down, Harvest Gold is not! We have several new pieces from artists Kristen Dill and Varvara Harmon.
Varvara Harmon, originally from Russia, immigrated to the United States and now resides in Windham, Maine. Whilst working as a geologist in Russia, Varvara saw many spectacular natural sights and ultimately returned to an earlier passion: painting landscapes.
She has since become a highly praised and awarded artist, and is a member of the International Guild of Realism. Having moved to Maine, much of her recent work is inspired by the natural beauty found in New England. Her talent is obvious when you stand in front of her paintings; you truly feel like you're experiencing soft sunlight or crisp autumn air in the mountains.
Kristen Dill, another popular artist at the Gallery, has supplied us with several pieces that she completed over the summer. Through her artwork, Kristen seeks to "capture the ephemeral quality of nature and make it a shared visual experience."
Kristen spends her summer on Moose Pond, with a screen porch serving as her studio. Her new pieces primarily feature flowers. They are bright, vibrant, and immediately catch the eye of the viewer. Although no painting is alike, each manages to evoke a sense of a sunny summer day, whether it is with bees buzzing around or fresh strawberries in the foreground.
We hope you come in to view these stunning new works. Stop by to peruse the gallery, admire the view, or just have a chat!
