I finally finished this Amish themed pastel painting titled, “At Day’s End”. I must say, this took me awhile, with a lot of fixing and erasing! But I made it!
With this painting, I wanted to portray an Amish girl lost in her thoughts, at the end of a busy day. At this moment, she is enjoying the quiet and gathering wildflowers as the day turns to dusk. What could she be thinking? What will tomorrow bring, perhaps? I hope you like her.
I added the farm in the background and the quilt for added interest.
Well, she’s finally completed! I’m calling this one “Eva and the Piglet”.
She’s just finished her chores and is enjoying a peaceful moment with the new addition to the family, this little piglet. The serene look on Eva’s face says it all.
I am happy with the way this has come out. Originally, I had wanted to put more in the background like a muted farmhouse, or fence, but realized I didn’t want to take away focus from the two of them at all. So I just left the colors to look like the trees in the background, thereby just focusing on the special bond taking place between the two.
I may just want to add a beautiful quote if I can find one that fits perfectly. If you have any suggestions, I may use it! Thank you for your interest and support.
Hello and I know it’s been awhile. I am so sorry. I just came back from a week out to North Carolina and I have been so out of sync…but I am getting there!
I have been starting to paint some farm, fruit signs that almost look like the vegetable ones I am selling currently on Etsy. The vegetable signs seem to be so popular, so I figured I would also try several paintings of fruit. I will show you when they are finished and ready to put up on Etsy.
But in the meantime, as many of you know, I have a passion for doing pictures and paintings with amish themes. I am currently working on a watercolor painting of an amish girl walking with a calf through grassy field. It’s just a sketch right now, but I will show you what I have soon… But while this is in the works, I figured I’d show you these photos I create and sell on Etsy. They are prayer caps and straw hats used in photos with quilts and I add inspirational quotes when I think they would add to the photo.Some I haven’t put up on Etsy yet, but will be soon…Enjoy!
