Jordan's Pool #

AvatarPosted by Don Lenahan on November 23, 2013
Unless the artist titled this painting as such, the name of the "pool" is Jordan Pond, now in Acadia Natl Park on Mt Desert Is., ME.

Hello Mr. Lenahan,

As with the "Balance Rock" image, the artist's label had been mis-transcribed. Thank you again for correcting our error. We appreciate it!

Best,
