Painting Along the Creek by Julie Riker

11x14 oil
This painting was started on a sunny day last summer during an outing with the SVPAP.  I had the majority of this blocked in on site and left it alone for awhile, always liking the fresh feel and not wanting to mess with it too much.  Just last week I added the figure, fellow DPP member Deb Kreiger, using my photo reference from the day.

    I will be showing this painting along with 19 other pieces during a one night only exhibit this Friday the 15th, 6-8 pm at City House Bed and Breakfast on Front St. Harrisburg.  It is a special reception to kick off the sale of a greeting card benefiting the YWCA which features my Red Tulip painting.  The cards will be available for purchase that evening.  Each card costs $10 and will provide a night's shelter to a woman and her child.  It will be a lovely night and all are welcome to attend.  http://www.ywcahbg.org/events/ywca-cards-heart-kickoff-reception#.UUEr4le6xk0

I know I commented on this painting on one of the other blogs, but I have to say again that I think this is one of your best. The light in this is spot on.
