"100 SLC Porches, No.96"

I've been eyeing this eclectic porch for a while now and trying to figure out which time of year to do.  You see, the straw man that resides on the porch changes accessories from time to time- season to season.  Also, in mid summer the front yard raised gardens are in full glorious bloom.  It was hard choosing which version to do.  I chose this latest version that I took a picture of when I cycled by about two weeks ago.
"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.96"; Watercolor on 12" x 16" Paper.
My other dilemma was trying to choose which method of painting it would be best.  I was playing with the idea of doing it in an oil but I've opted to do it in watercolor.  I started with a couple of layers of flat washes and then worked in the puddle style of watercolor painting.  To view the progress of (or to purchase one of) 100 Salt Lake City Porches, click here.  I welcome any feedback you may have.  Thank you for visiting!

Hi, Porch #96 here. We are going to put an eensy chainsaw on Woody's (that's the wooden statue) right hand in a few days. Yes; we do love The Evil Dead II. And thank you so much for this -- I have (tonight) spread your fame far and wide. Well, to an awful lot of my friends. All within North America (husband is Canadian, you see).

Hmmmm. Again, thanks (forced comment by Google ID).

Hi Laurel,
Thanks for your comment. The Evil Dead just in time for the Christmas season. I LOVE it! I hope you and your Canadian are able to make the Art Show on Jan. 14th. I'll send you an invite. And I'll have to swing by to view Woody in a few days.
