A Stately Entrance by Julie Riker


I made arrangements for the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters to paint out in the well tended gardens of the  PA Governor's Residence last week.   Even though most of the flowers had gone for the season, there was still a lot of beautiful color to see.  I particularly loved this shrub in the foreground with the firey red foliage.
It was a cold day to paint outside, but Tammy and the staff made us feel welcomed, even offering warm beverages and freshly baked cookies to warm us up.  I think everyone had a good time.
