Well the last two paintings I ordered in this purchase are Milly and Marietta. At first I was only going to purchase Marietta a classic beauty, but I kept looking at Milly with her pink hair and knew I wanted to purchase her as well. I must say Milly is my Disco Diva and she is magnificent in person!! I admit I have slight obsession with these paintings that are bursting with personality. I purchased quite a few in two weeks and Amanda was nice to hold them while I was away at our lake home, she sent them out when I got back to Ct. and they all arrived today. I had fun unwrapping each one and seeing the beauty laid out in front of me. I brought the first ones to SC. because I was going to display them there. I ended up bringing the ones I had in SC. back with me so I could see them all together. Wow they are spectacular!

As soon as I saw this she reminded me of my daughter's best friend. There was no doubt in my mind that I would be adding her to the collection..After I purchased her I looked to see what name she was given, it ended up being Jess which is the same name as my daughter's friend. It was meant to be and I adore her!

I had asked Amanda if I could request a girl with wings to go along with my handsome Liam. She graciously agreed and painted Miranda. The computer does not do her justice, she is amazing in person. The stars twinkling in the night sky pop right off the painting. There is so much life and emotion in each and every painting I have purchased. If you see something that draws you in then do not hesitate to purchase a painting..You will be very happy that you did!!

These little portraits were all about the hair and pattern. My last batch were all beach portraits. Having fun painting them in mini series.

About

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.
