Morning on the Farm by Julie Riker

8x16 oil
     This is one of two paintings that I did last August during a day long painting outing to the Olson farm.  This one was the first of the two, painted in the morning as the mist was beginning to lift.  It was such a great day, and I hope we are invited back again this year.
     This is one of 5 paintings that sold during my reception last Friday night kicking off the sale of a greeting card to benefit the YWCA which featured my Red Tulip painting.  Thanks to everyone who came out to support me and the YWCA.  The Y raised over $1,200 in card sales and the Red Tulip painting went for $1,000 to an anonymous bidder.
 
     The cards are also available for purchase online at http://www.ywcahbg.org/cardswithheart#.UUmsPlfxfGs
