Shady Spot On The Porch by Julie Riker

6x8 oil

At the Moorestead Farm I decided to focus on the front porch. I was interested in the contrast of the cool shadow light on the porch vs. the warm outside light filtering in.  I liked the strong design created by the structure and the sunlight hitting the flag and swing.  It seemed like an ideal spot to hang out with a glass of lemonade.

A little piece of perfection--love the light on the porch ceiling,as well as the light on the porch swing and flag.

A perfect little spot on a lazy afternoon. A slice of Americana. Lovely painting!
