Here is the completed pastel painting “Tiny Companion” that I had promised to share. This painting took me awhile, but it was so worth it.
I love the soft look of the colors and the Amish girl’s serene expression here. The small bird cuddling up to her neck was added as a way to portray love of nature and gentleness of the Amish girl. I hope I conveyed that here.
I hope you like how this painting turned out. I am almost finished with another one in the works and I will share shortly. Thank you for your interest in my work.
Hello! It’s been awhile but I’m back from vacation after a couple of weeks and have 3 new paintings to share (1 completed, 2 in the works) with you.
Again we visited Amish Country in Lancaster, Pa, and I couldn’t wait to get back home and try to finish all 3 of these paintings! I will soon!
I’ve finished a new Amish painting titled, “James, Amish Innocence” and I just loved the way this one came out. This one is already on my Etsy Shop!
“James” is an art piece which seems to be just a simple portrait of an Amish boy in his black hat and vest, but really, it is so much more than that. James innocence here shines through from his curious glance and quiet demeanor, to his long eyelashes and rosy cheeks. Such a simple but beautiful portrait. Great for anyone that loves to collect amish artworks or likes to visit Amish Country.
Then I have a little Amish girl holding a guinea pig, which I haven’t titled as of yet. I really like the glow from the sun around her. It was a challenge to try and pull that off as I have never done a painting with a “glow” effect before, but always wanted to. I also like the way she is looking down at the small animal here. I’m almost done with this one, when I am finished with the guinea pig the painting will be complete, then I will share this one as soon as I can.
The last painting is a nice one and I can’t wait to finish this one, also. This painting I actually took from a picture of my daughter sitting under a gazebo in the sunset in Pennsylvania, another “glow effect” painting. I just added a cap and amish dress and she looks like an amish girl taking a rest at the end of a hard working day. I need a title for this painting also. Well, it’s back to the drawing board for now! I will post these as soon as I can! Enjoy!
Hello everyone. This took some time, but “Pink” is finally completed. Oh, I wish I had nothing to do but paint all day, but there is still chores to do and orders to fulfill, etc. etc. But lately it has been quiet and I have had time to complete some paintings, and even start new ones.
I really enjoyed painting Pink with all that white hair (which I would just love to have myself). She is so beautiful!
The other painting, the Amish Girl, you may be familiar with. This was a painting I had done awhile ago. I had started her in watercolor and couldn’t quite figure out what the background would be. Then when I painted a complete background for her, I never was really happy with it.
When I had found the picture I had started with, a picture I had taken with just her face painted in, I liked it so much, I just added a simple quote to it. I think I rather like the simple look to this better.
Hope you enjoy these two paintings, and I will show you what I have started in the next post. Until then…blessings!
