“The Country Path” Pastel Painting

As I wait for the Amish Calendar to arrive at my house so I can see what the quality is like, (then I can share it all with you) I have been trying my hand at simple landscape paintings. I wanted to try a sunset with a country path, like something you would see in Lancaster, Pa or any beautiful country place. I got several reference photos together and kind of melded all of them together to make this one. I did have fun as I didn’t have to be so picky. I was happy with the result and now I want to do more of course!

I love all the warm colors and the path looking like it lights the way on it’s own. I even added a simple quote to go along with the painting. Hope you like this. I think my next landscape may be an ocean or beach painting, not sure yet.

As far as the Amish Paintings Calendar, I will let you know when it will finally be up for sale. I’m not sure if I will sell them on Zazzle or on my Etsy Store, but I will definitely let you know in a few days. I will post pictures of what it looks like.

Thank you and have a great day!

P.S. The collage painting in my previous posts will be finished soon I swear!

Another Amish Painting InThe Works And An Inspirational Quote Watercolor

Hi all!  I am so sorry for not keeping up on this blog lately.  I am now getting ready for my daughter’s graduation from college and I have been busily painting rooms and fixing things around the house like crazy.  It actually feels good to see change,I must say.  And who can beat the look and smell of fresh paint!

Anyway, I just thought I would share with you this painting which has been sitting unfinished like this awhile now. It’s another Amish Girl and she is supposed to be watching a baby chick on her lap.   I really love the face on this little girl and I can’t wait to finish her, but she has to wait just a little bit.  Every time I go into my room she is staring at me and I want so badly to just sit there and get down to business.  I will…I will !

I will post again when I am finished with her.

Here is also another painting I finished.  I have been doing random watercolors just to keep up with my artwork and to put something new in my Etsy shop.  These watercolor paintings are less time consuming than the pastels, so I try to fit a few in before I start  my fixing and painting of the house. This one is in watercolors and it’s a little girl looking out over the mountains under a beautiful rainbow. Inspired by the very thing I love to do, observe nature!  I hope you like them. Be back soon!
