Empty House by Julie Riker



10x8
oil on panel

I painted both Saturday and Sunday at the Empty House Tour for the Harrisburg Symphony Showhouse.  On Saturday I did the winter scene looking out the window, but for Sunday I decided to turn my easel around and paint the interior of the living room looking in to the hallway and library.  I don't usually paint interior scenes and I enjoyed it.

There were over 300 visitors to the house over the weekend - people anxious to get a sneak peek before the designers starting working.  I had set some of my paintings around on window sills and mantles to make the house not look so "empty" and was thrilled that 6 paintings sold over the 2 days...including this little one wet off the easel!
