My plein air group recently painted in a beautiful yard in Old Colorado City, the oldest part of Colorado Springs.  The whole side yard has been turned into a garden.  The side porch looks out onto the flowers and vegetables.

good composition, Pam. I also love your previous post. Can't wait to come out to the big sky again.

That looks so fun! Nice job! Wouldn't it be cool to do a series in old Colorado city of houses and porches.....I'm coming out for that one. How's the heat out there? a lot of rain here as son as you left. 21 days until I am an empty nester.....but whose counting!

Oh, to have a quiet moment to sit and look over a garden. Pure bliss.

Love this painting and particularly this subject. So sweet!!! Yellow is a very cheery color.

I quite like your approach in this one--strong lines of division and the flat stokes of the floor really emphasize the texture and structure of the furnishings--nice push/pull

Sherry, Thanks, You're right, it would be a great coffee spot. A retired couple live in this house and they said they practically live on their porch.

Thank you Cathyann, Yes, as you've seen, we do have great skies.

Natalie, Thanks, Yes, it would be great to do a series. I found that for porches, it's best in the spring when there aren't as many plants and leaves covering the porch!

Thank you Kelley, We should all take more quiet moments for ourselves.

Debbi, Thanks. Yellow is cheery, but can be a challenge in the shade. I didn't want it to get too dark.

Jan, Thank you, The floor was a challenge as I wanted it to be shinier than it was, but decided to stick w/ not too shiny, which is how it apperd

Pam, so peaceful and relaxing, to think about sitting on the porch in the wicker chair! Great job, and great subject!

This looks like one of those great porches that was made for tea and conversation. Love the colors and crisp shadows!
