Staircase To The 2nd Floor by Julie Riker

12x9 oil
Plein Air Magazine Award
Wayne Plein Air 2016

I was honored to be included among 32 talented artists selected to participate in Wayne Plein Air last week.

We had 5 days to create paintings within 20 miles of Wayne, PA.  It was fun exploring the area, rich with historical buildings, farms, and urban areas...I even ventured into Philadelphia.
All week the weather was gray and a bit drizzly.  I was frustrated with the flat light.  On the last day the sun finally came out and I painted this piece. 

I was thrilled that judge T. Allen Lawson chose this painting for the Plein Air Magazine Award.

This and ALL of the paintings from the week are on exhibit at the Wayne Art Center through June 25.
