Show coming up

Blue Beyond, 36x36, acrylic

I will be part of a group show at the Jenkins Showler gallery. It is their 20th anniversary, so certainly worthy of a celebration. The opening is on Oct 2 and I hope that some of you can make it. This is one of my new pieces. I always love seeing the ocean through the trees as you get closer to the end of the trail. I was going to really push the colour but I wanted a tranquil feeling so I kept it fairly soft. I also decided not to make the foliage on the trees too heavy and dark. I am overall pleased with the result.


  1. I love this painting and the way you kept the color soft. Very soothing and beautiful. Congrats on the show!

  2. Wonderful work Amanda, glad I found your blog.
