Anna In The Orchard, An Amish Watercolor Completed

First let me say thanks to all those who gave me some awesome input for ideas for finishing this painting. It was extremely helpful.  It’s also nice to know that you are interested in my work. Thanks so much!

Well, I finally finished…I think. I just might add a couple of peaches in the branches above Anna at some point…not sure. But, I did use some muted trees for the background and the simple leaves for the foreground so it framed Anna somewhat.

The butterfly here needed to look more realistic than cartoonish or simplistic, like I’m so used to drawing, because it would have been out of place otherwise with such a realistic, little girl.  I really didn’t want to put anything else, but sky around her pretty face. The space here works well too, in case I decide to place a small quote or saying for a cute note card at some point.

Unfortunately, I had gone too far with this painting when I saw the idea for the wagon. I could have done that I think,  but maybe for the next one.  I’m sure there will be more orchard paintings….hmmm…apple orchard….pumpkins….uh-oh…more ideas!  Thanks to all and hope you like the completed picture!

Also, prints are sold on my Etsy at  www.cherylmcnultyart.etsy.com!

Pebbles and Lace

Hello!  I am just so happy to announce that some of my prints are being sold in a new shop that opened in Strasburg, Pa. Just last week. Becky, the owner of Pebbles and Lace, found me through Etsy and asked me if I would like to sell prints in her shop.  Well, I just jumped at the chance and I can’t thank them enough! I can’t wait to go visit and check out all the beautiful things in her shop! It’s also nice to actually have my prints sold in an area I love so much and feel so much a part of, but unfortunately, live so far away from.

Someday….someday…

So if you are ever in the area in Pa., go check out Pebbles and Lace Gifts.  It’s on 11 East Main Street in Strasburg, Pa.!  Enjoy!
