Field Of Sunshine by Julie Riker

20x24 oil

This is a studio piece inspired from an 11x14 plein air that was painted at the farm of Eric and Nancy Olsen.  Field Of Sunshine is one of the 3 paintings I am entering in the Daily Painters exhibit at the Capitol Building in July.  
The image below shows a glimpse of the original study behind Cinder the cat, who stole my seat the minute I stood up to step back from my work.


You can read my post about the original plein air painting here.
