this is all i know the etsy store of amanda blake is filled w/ her wonderful, old timey paintings. i use the word 'old timey' because each seemingly tells a story from another era, yet when looking closely it's hard to tell when that specific time period is. amanda's work has real warmth, despite her subjects often having a forlorn look to their eyes. her use of color, pairing deep w/ light so easily really pulls me in. her oil paintings tell a rich story. besides amanda's work, i'm particularly found of her current obsessions: "imaginary friends, snow, little mammals, folklore, superstitions, fortunetelling, wildflowers, wallpaper, cloudy landscapes, the colors of faded polaroids, and other peoples family snapshots."
