Painting A Day Series: Number Eight is by Gordon MacDonald

If you've ever visited the gallery, chances are at some point you've crossed paths with artist Gordon MacDonald. Gordon just had a mini show of Nocturnal Landscapes, which you can  enjoy at . Now, he's getting ready for his show, opening in August. Expect some urban landscapes- we can hardly wait!

Today's painting is from a trip Gordon took to Newfoundland a few years ago. This painting is called November in Woody Point. It is painted on copper with oil, measures 8" x 10" and is $650. (framed in locally crafted frame)

This piece is even more luminous and dreamy in person. I've only been to Newfoundland once before, but this is the memory I have of the light there- all  purple and blue. Gordon is a master of light-every location has it's own unique feeling because of this too.
