There is something special about seeing art outdoors on a farm.  It is worth driving up to the Skagit Valley each October just to see Eddie Gordon’s new work.  Each year the Gordon Skagit Farm becomes a gallery for his latest “crop” of paintings.  Take a look:

    I laughed at the white barn with the pumpkin painted on the side, though I wished he’d left the pumpkin out of the painting. Ah, well. My other two favorite paintings are the last two. I suppose it’s because they’re vaguely Edward Hopper-ish, and I really, really like his work.
    I do like the way the art, the machinery and the veggies are combined, and I like the stenciling on one of the veggie stands.

      I would really like to see Eddie at work in his studio. He is so prolific and works in such a large scale. Every year he astounds me.

    Inspired by your posts, we took a wonderful trip to Gordon Farm on Friday. In spite of the threat of rain, being outdoors with the paintings, the vegetables, and the industrial artifacts – all so cleverly arranged – was quite enjoyable. Enhancing this experience was the creme brulee fragrance of the 3 Katsura trees in Fall leaf; my favorite!
