Front Porch Contest Winner!

Over the summer I partnered with my good friends Mary and Dave Morris of Front Porch Ideas and More and provided the winner of their Pleasant Summer Porch Contest with an original painting of their porch.

This winning home is located in Waxhaw NC in a lovely rural setting.  I love the colorful flowering plants and greenery decorating this porch.


A classic Colonial home in NC was the winner of the porch contest.

The porch, which extends along the full width of the house was  adorned with 4th of July color.




This is the photo I selected to use for the portrait. I made a few slight changes so it looked even more welcoming and vibrant.

And here is the completed painting! Don’t you feel like sinking down into one of those chairs and having a cop of tea?
