100 Garden & Floral Oil Paintings, Original Artwork by a Colorado Daily Painter, 34/100
Shelter Island Porch
8" x 10" oil on board
On our recent trip to New Jersey and New York, my husband and I went to Shelter Island out on Long Island. About 100 years ago my husbands' grandfather built a summer home on Shelter Island. It was in his family until 1991 when my in-laws sold it. We toured the house, which was great fun for my husband. We spent several days staying with old family friends of his parents, visited some of his relatives, and saw other friends from his youth.
This is the front porch of the house where we stayed. We ate our meals out there, sat and visited, and enjoyed the incredible view of the water. There are no views like that here in Colorado.
