Aaron’s Peeking, Another Amish Painting

Hello! First, let me say I am sorry this has taken so long. There have been several family issues  (health wise) which happened to come up all at once.  It’s crazy how things can be going along fine one minute, and at a moments notice, everything can change…just like that!  At least I have faith to get me through … and my painting to get my mind off things and give me some form of brief escape.

But  back to my painting. I’m calling this one “Aaron’s Peeking”, and even though I wish I could see more of Aaron’s face,  I feel thats what gives this painting the interest it needs. I still may want to add to his straw hat, to give it a little more texture and punch, so I will work on that a little more.

I do love the fact that Aaron is peeking over an Amish quilt (of course), and I love the colorful pattern on this one.  Then there is the little part of nature added in…which is Mr. Bluebird. He wants to play too! I decided to leave a blank, blue sky so I could have the option to add an inspirational quote, like I like to do.  In any event, I like the way it turned out and I hope you do too.

I still have my collage painting which was posted a couple of  blog Continue reading

Three Different Views of an Amish Quilt

I just put up a new listing on my Etsy of an Amish Quilt and Straw Hat pictured three different ways.

I just love displaying my beautiful quilts that I bought on trips to Amish Country.  When I visit there,  I have always tried to find pictures, photos and paintings of bright quilts in a scene that I would love to display in my home , especially if I could not afford to buy one on a trip because of all the other goodies I had bought already! So habit forming! So this is the reason I put these photos together, so others can enjoy their beauty without all the expense. Like I said before, if you see something here or on my shop, and are not familiar with buying online, please email me at mcprop@cox.net, and we can set something up.

I hope you like these…there will be more to come and also, I am finally finishing up my Amish Watercolor with the calf and should have it up in a day or so, I can’t wait for you all to see it!  Enjoy!

Trying Something A Little Different

Here is a pastel painting that is not like anything in my portfolio.  I need more summer and nature pictures for the portfolio and this is what I have down so far.  I am pretty happy with the results so far…I just need to add a couple of birds to the post with wildflowers to the background and foreground and I should be all set.  I can’t wait to see it completed.

I have included the reference photo I took in my backyard.  I just made the colors more vibrant in the quilt for intensity.  I will post the completed picture as soon as I am done.
