"100 SLC Porches, No.49 to No.52"

I was REALLY in the mood to paint this weekend and managed to get 4 of the 100 Salt Lake City Porches done.  And here they are in order...
"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.49"; Oil on 12" x 12" Wrapped Canvas
No this is not the original painting I had planned to paint.  That porch painting is still off to the side.  This porch painting in oil came together quickly.   This sunny porch was scouted out by a friend and I think what drew us both to this porch was the ceramic tiled square areas on the lower areas of each side of the porch.  I also liked the fish mail box too.  I kept to a pastel pallet on this one.

Below Porch #50 was also spotted by the same friend.  I loved the red tree and went a bit brighter with it.  This watercolor was a combination of flat washes, puddle painting, and sponge painting.

Porch #51 has an Old English feel to it.  I did this watercolor in a wet to dry method then did a bit of puddle painting to finish it off.  I kept to a raw umber, indingo blue, and yellow mix (medium yellow & yellow ochre) pallet.

Porch #52 belongs to a co-worker who had reserved the number because it was her age.  I really think she wanted me to get more porches under my belt before I attempted hers.  I surprised her at work this morning, and she was delighted with it.

How lovely! Thanks for painting my house (#49). I'd love to see it in person (before I figure out whether to buy it or not, but I probably will) :)

I'll be in touch. I've shown a lot of people your blog; very creative idea for creating, and showcasing your art.

I'm a Little Red rider too; just did the 100 last weekend!

Yes, I would love to show you the painting in person. It currently needs about two weeks before it drys; oil takes a bit longer to dry. Just contact me via email in a couple of weeks.

My bike club puts on Little Red. Last year I was one of the volunteer coordinators. I took more of back seat approach this year and wrote emails for the Little Red Committee. It's a GREAT ride!
