Little Pink Charmer by Julie Riker

9x12 oil

I found this pink house in Liverpool.  I was attracted to the strong sunlight on the house and the variations in pinks - including the reflected glow under the porch roof.
The entire time I was painting I had that John Mellencamp song going through my head "Ain't that America...little pink houses for you and me".  With the sunflowers, the flag, this seemed like the quintessential small town charmer.
