Leucauge venusta. When I found it, it was dangling in mid air on a string of its web, but then it quickly retreated to this chalk board where I photographed it.

Hi, and welcome to the site. Your little friend is a female orchard spider, Leucauge venusta species.
Colorful, pretty, and not dangerous.
