Well it’s October, and it sure looks like it here in Maine. The fall foliage is nearing its peak, with rich vibrant colors spreading across the trees. The nights have turned much cooler, only to return to a warm sunny day. Early morning and evening skies serve as beautiful backdrops to the change in seasons; there really is no better place to be in autumn, than in New England.
Artist Fred Swan captures all the essence of the harvest season as described above, with fine attention to detail in our October Light Framed Print. Pictured here to the left, October Light shares a still moment on a farmstead just before dusk. Hues of pink and purple contrast with the orange and red leaves, and freshly mowed green grass. A large tree casts a shadow in the foreground, framing the image. Fred Swan’s ability to create paintings with both accurate color and the realism of a photograph, are talents we have come to appreciate from the Vermont artist. This framed print is double matted in a brown, wood-look frame, and is set under glass. Proudly made here in the USA, October Light is on sale now for $20 off during our Harvest Sale going on now.
Customers will love how a piece of wall art like this can become the focal point of any wall, in any room of the home. Perfect to display throughout the entire season, we suggest this print for a gift idea as well. Perhaps you know a Fred Swan collector? Or maybe your friend or family member has an interest in American made artwork? The gift of a Fred Swan print from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop is one to be treasured for years to come.

About the Artist
Working exclusively in acrylic paints, Fred Swan’s meticulous attention to detail is supported by a very patient hand. Some of his original paintings can take an average of 500 hours to produce. The length of time to create these works of art forces him to consistently limit the number made of each publication; this is to ensure he has time to work on new paintings. Mr. Swan exposes rural country life so well because he truly has a passion for it.
The Vermont artist has been featured in a variety of publications, such as Yankee Magazine and Vermont Life Magazine. Fred Swan has become known as an accomplished landscape artist and an artist who has as many say, an “immediately recognizable style.” He draws inspiration from the rustic beauty that surrounds him on a daily basis. Currently, his work is displayed in numerous private and corporate collections, like Johnson and Johnson, the estate of Malcolm Forbes and the Vermont Council of the Arts. Many of his paintings have also been adapted for calendars and jig-saw puzzles.
