Amish Boy

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The Amish way of life is familiar to those of us in the Midwest and the Amish horse and buggy is not an uncommon sight on the roads in this region. I have great respect for those gentle people who choose the simplicty of this lifestyle; for their faith, their devotion, their love, and their industriousness. I hope this love and respect shows in my paintings. From them I have learned to focus on the things that are really important in this life: faith in God, the love of family and friends, and honest work. This painting is a mixed-media in watercolor with pen and ink and colored pencil. It has already sold, but I am hoping to finish an acrylic painting next week of an Amish horse and buggy in the snow. You will see it here first!

Oh Della, this portrait is so precious. I'm not surprised it is sold. It's such a beautiful painting.
