Another fabulous painting to add to my beautiful collection. I love all the colors in the background which does not translate well on a computer screen. There is something magical about Amanda's paintings and these are an affordable way to have an original. I, like many others, cannot seem to get enough of them. I hope to get one of the larger paintings in the future..
oil paintings by amanda blake
Working primarily in oil paint on wood I paint in two series. My work on wood panels which range from six inches to 36 inches square uses symbolism, superstition and narrative to explore themes of love, fate and identity. Over the past seven years I also have been working on a series of imaginary portraits on small wood blocks. I have painted hundreds of these little people with near identical composition, I am fascinated by the personality that can come through in such simple paintings.
I received my BA in fine arts from the University of Oregon, studied watercolor in Siena, Italy and oil painting and print making at the Chautauqua Art Institute in New York. I was born in and spent most of my life in Oregon and currently live in Morgantown, West Virginia.
