This was the porch of guest house I was staying at while attending Plein Air Moab. I would leave the light on because sometimes I would come back after dark and it is really dark in the country when there is no moon out. I got up early one morning before sunrise and painted this familiar rustic scene. This painting won a Award of Merit at the Plein Air Moab this October. I would like to give a shout out to my friend Sonya Johnson who also won an Award of Merit at Plein Air Moab for her beautiful pastel painting "Late Afternoon Glow on the Monocline". Way to go girl!
