Yesterday, July 16th, was Doug Houle's plein air! It was a warm, sunny day, and he chose to paint the image of the fence outside the gallery with some flowers.
Here is the painting at its stopping point, Doug wanted to use a bright base color, such as this red, to give the finished painting brightness from within. He also commented on the fact that using a bright base color is useful when you have limited time to complete painting, such as yesterday during the plein air!
Here is Doug next to his painting! It was wonderful having him paint out at the gallery on such a beautiful day! Please click on the images to learn more about Doug and his work- and stop by the gallery to see his paintings!
On the same day, the gallery said hello to "Hoot"! A sculpture of an owl that is making a brief visit, as it is already sold.
Here is the owl being transported to its temporary home! We are so grateful for the help moving it in- as it is 6 feet tall.
Here is the owl sculpture outside the gallery! Although this sculpture is already sold, Harvest Gold has many more to see, outside, and inside! Please click on the images to learn more about the other sculptures we have for sale, or come visit us to see them in person!
