Show Off Your Pet Appreciation with Artist John Golden

Monday, March 19th, 2012

With this coming Friday marking National Puppy Day, we thought it might be fun to feature a line of our dog prints which will surely show off your dog’s true colors. These vibrant, abstract-like paintings by artist John Golden offer portraits of individual dogs, representing their specific dog breed very well. If you or someone you know recently brought a dog home, any of our prints pictured below would make a great gift. Or, perhaps you already have a loving family dog, in which case show your pet how much you appreciate him or her by displaying one of our Eco-friendly dog prints on a wall at your home.

Pictured here to the left is our Boxer Print. Displaying a very distinguished animal showing off his radiant colors and distinctive jaw bone. Boxers are known for their faithfulness and obedience towards their owners, yet are also extremely playful with trusted companions. The boxer’s coat contrast nicely with the bright blue background. As with all of John Golden’s prints at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, the name of the particular dog breed is written abstractly above the dog’s head.

At an early age, the artist John Golden began to express himself through art and was destined for a life full of artistic ventures that would cover a variety of mediums. At age 11 he amazingly produced work in linoleum block prints; which is a print making technique using a “carved” sheet of linoleum and then pressed on paper to create a mirror image of the cut out design. At age 14 he produced a series of ink and pen renderings of North Carolina lighthouses. Growing up in North Carolina, he was surrounded by beautiful landscapes, churches and other buildings that inspired him. Throughout high school he continued to develop his own artistic taste and talent.

John attended Appalachian State University and earned a degree in digital art; he did however take many courses in photography and gained an appreciation and passion for that as well. The years after college were filled with an experimentation of painting and illustration; working day and night at various design jobs. Later, his work came to encompass projects for the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and the Animal Planet, just to name a few. During this time, along with other past experiences, he gained a skill set that included animation and motion design.

Seen here to the left is another fabulous dog print by the artist, our Dalmatian Print. Featuring a happy spotted puppy who also contrasts nicely with his bright red background. The print delightfully depicts this wonderful breed known as much by their elegance, as well as their endurance. All of John Golden’s dog prints at Sturbridge have an almost abstract appearance and display floating dog bones within the background. All are also exquisitely laminated and framed in a beautiful espresso box frame, made of 98% recycled materials in Vermont; making these framed prints an Eco-friendly choice. We are proud that these prints are produced by artisans, right here in the USA.

In 1999 John formed John W. Golden Desin, a multi-media design company with a concentration on design work and illustration for print, broadcast and web fields. In 2007 though, he began to focus solely on creating and selling his original art. Today his work covers a variety of themes, with a large portion of that work showcasing his breathtaking photography skills. Genres include: historic, rivers & coasts, nature, still life, urban and many more. His digital art includes unique themes such as: robots, rockets & space and gorgeous landscapes.

~Thanks John Golden, all of us at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop wish you the best in your future artistic endeavors.
