Art on the Farm: Part 2 of My Visit to Gordon Skagit Farms

October 19, 2012

Pumpkin paintings displayed on the side of an old barn — Gordon Skagit Farms

The highlight of my day trip to Gordon Skagit Farms was the art.  Eddie Gordon, one of the Gordon farmers, is also a talented artist, and he displays his large paintings en plein air.  (He is also offering three prints for sale this year.)  I thought the presentation of art on the farm was delightful.  I’ll show you some photos, but I highly recommend that you make a visit this month to see the paintings in person.

    gorgeous photos of a gorgeous farm in the prime of harvest season!! love the “en plein air” art! your last photo of the pumpkin portrait is amazing…it really needs to be on the front of a fall, greeting card or framed in your collection!!

    What a wonderful entry – the art, the pumpkins, the everything!
    It’s time for some housecleaning and a trip to find some fall for my place – despite this danged ongoing summer!

    What a way to display paintings – somehow this is very “Skagit”, no? Everything relating back to the farm landscape.

      I do associate the Skagit Valley with artists, and especially love it when the art reflects a rural theme. Thanks for your comments!
