“The Front Porch” is an art print that was just added to the Landscape Oil collection. The scene is a typical Victorian front porch during the fall season. You can almost picture yourself sitting on the front porch, chatting with the neighbors and enjoying the fall afternoon. I actually grew up with this type of front porch, which is a dying breed in modern homes. I did this print with the impasto style of brush strokes that are large and bold. It creates a warm sense while still retaining brighter colors. The actual inspiration for this piece is from a photo shoot I did last fall in Issaquah, Washington. Issaquah sits in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range in the eastern part of the Seattle metropolitan area. The fall colors were incredible and in older Issaquah, this type of architecture is more common. I have attached the photograph that was the basis behind the final product as it’s kind of interesting to see a “before” and “after” so to speak.
And the original shot which was my inspiration……
