The New England look of Fairfield Porter

There's something about spending the weekend in Connecticut that makes us think of Fairfield Porter. The obvious name associations aside, his palatte and subjects have an elegant, yankee charm that we see everyday in our journeys for antiques and historic homes. Here's a sampling of why we love both:
