Happy New Year!

Shades of Blue, 36x48, acrylic

I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to look at my postings and leave a comment or two. It has been such fun to blog with you all. Here's to a new year with wonderful painting possibilities. One of my resolutions is to try some plein air, when it gets warmer of course! I still don't have anything new to post. This piece is one I really enjoyed doing. The subject is something I love and I had fun with the shapes. I often like to stylize a piece it allows for so much creativity. There is nothing worse than being slavishly tied to a subject. To express yourself with brushwork and colour and shape is what makes the work original. The goal for me is to capture the feel and atmosphere of the place, and to capture some of the joy I felt in being there.


  1. I LOVE this painting Amanda! Gorgeous!

  2. Happy New Year, share the love share a hug, all the best for 2011.

  3. Beautiful design and color harmonies!

  4. Happy new year, lovely painting. I wish you many good paintings this year.


Please leave a comment I appreciate the feedback.
