New Works by Gordon MacDonald and Online Workshop!

In an effort to keep you up to date with all things gallery related, we're thrilled to bring you 3 new paintings by artist Gordon Macdonald.  

Inspired by his trip to Saskatchewan last Fall, we have 2 pieces that feature the city of Saskatoon;  
 Gordon MacDonald, Saskatoon From The Air, oil on canvas, 24" x 36"

"Saskatoon From The Air" explores the great expanse of the Saskatchewan Landscape, as seen from an aircraft window.  The horizon line divides the upper third of the canvas with cooler blues, while the warmer hues of the rich agricultural farmland recedes into the background, blending land and sky into infinity.  

Gordon MacDonald, Saskatoon Airport, oil on copper on board, 7" x 9" 

Gordon's "Saskatoon Airport" painting transforms a typical mundane commute into a captivating visual experience.  The approaching foreground buildings are quickly overshadowed by massive cloud formations from above.  Blue skies capture the light of the sun, and illuminate the landscape.  Street lamps are lit up along the way suggesting an early morning flight or one at twilight.

Gordon MacDonald, Antigonish, oil on canvas, 36" x 40"
And for something a little closer to home...Gordon's "Antigonish" painting, depicts a rural farm house from a field.  The white facade of the building draws in the viewers gaze, and once settled, we begin to experience the scale of the surrounding landscape.  As in the previous works we see the cooler darker tones of the earth contrasted against a warm bright sky.

We understand that seeing the works in person is a challenge these days, so we hope you can enjoy the online version.  The paintings are currently available for purchase, and shipping and home deliveries continue to be an option.  Should you have any questions about these or other works by Gordon MacDonald, please feel free to reach out to us...we'd love to hear from you!

We've decided to offer Gordon's Glazing Demo & Artist Talk ONLINE!  We are still asking people to register for the workshop to participate.  We'll be using a remote conference service app called Zoom to bring the Workshop directly to your home!
