Harvest Gold Gallery is honored to display Jean Swan Gordon paintings. She was born in 1922 and lived her early years in Old Lyme, CT where at only 14 years old she was studying under a local artist due to her talent. At first she only drew pen and pencil line drawings, many of them are figures of people. It wasn't until her later years that she started painting flowers, however they became an incredible success- both for Jean and anyone to behold them. Sadly Jean passed away in 2013, yet her spirit lives on in every brush stroke of every flower in her paintings.
"As with people, no two are the same. They can move around like people, and there’s something challenging about that. That’s why I try to convey in my work the vigor, energy, and variety of flowers at various stages of growth and development.”
