Amanda Blake, revisited...and it won't be the last time.

Caroline carefully arranges everything she holds dear.

Every once in awhile a painting comes along that overwhelms my heart and leaves me with that wanting-so-badly-it-hurts feeling. (We actually spoke of this once during a critique at school?!) I saw this piece by Amanda Blake this morning on Jennifer Morris's wonderful blog, Spilling Beauty and felt just that. I think Caroline must be a mindful constant gatherer-the best kind! xo

I love her pieces! They remind me of Carroll Cloar's work of the Arkansas landscape. Thanks for bringing more wonderful art into my life.

i am lucky enough to say that i am the proud owner of two little watercolors by her, and they are like little pieces of magic! way better than you could EVER imagine them to be. so what you see at her shop... times it by 2 or 3, maybe even 4 and that is what you will see when you open up a package from her!
