East Side House by Julie Riker

8x10 oil
I just spent a week on Chincoteague Island, VA where I painted for their annual plein air event.  This was my second year participating as an artist in this event and it was nice to see familiar faces.  The mosquitoes were miserable, much worse than they have ever been, but the weather was surprisingly nice with the exception of one solid day of rain and wind which forced me to paint from the front seat of my car (which was actually not all that bad).  I managed to do 6 paintings and two of them sold at the Saturday evening show.  This one sold within the first half hour so I am happy I took a quick picture of it.

I can see in this painting of Chincoteague, the violets and golds play so well off of each other.Lovely composition with great color choices!

This is a beautiful painting, Julie. The complementary palette scheme works very well!
