Christian Baker Farm by Julie Riker

Saturday was the perfect fall day to paint at the historic Christian Baker Farm and home of Lawrence and Tammi Knorr.  I thought the display of foliage complemented the brick house and red barn so well.  The sun was in and out, but I managed to quickly capture the shadows when they showed up.

Thanks to the Knorrs for inviting us out to paint!

Lovely painting of the Knorr's residence. I love the warm autumn tones.
