"Pears with Blue and White," oil on linen, 9"x12" - sold.

"Plums with Asian Vase," oil on hardboard, 8"x6" - sold.

Recently finished paintings.  I was holding them for the upcoming Art A Fair in Laguna Beach this summer, but just sold them. One can not resist, and I am most pleased they are going to wonderful homes.  All of my images are having to be uploaded through Chrome Browser these days.  They come up looking odd and florescent!  Not sure why, it's dreadful.  Sorry about this oddity.  They look normal on my website though!

  1. Hi Amanda,
    Your painting is looking good. I especially like the "Plums with Asian Vase".

    Congrats on these recent sales. What is this Art A Fair you speak of ?, I have not heard of such a Fair.
    Hope all is well in the OC. I will have to get down there soon and lay my eyes upon the artistic ventures of you artists of the southern territory!
    I had planned to see the Less is More Show at Anthony's gallery but got some 24hr flu that weekend and missed the opening.

    BTW, the image upload problems that befall you... I encountered the same dreadful difficulties.
    OOOh Google and their sometimes dastardly ways!

    From your blog- Overview,Stat or Comments page in editor...
    1. Upper right click +Amanda's Paint blog or whatever it says there next to + symbol, you are now on Google+

    2. Then left side drop down Home menu select 'settings'

    3. Scroll down to 'Photos and Videos', and 'Auto Enhance'

    4. Turn off 'Auto Enhance', that should fix it.

    You may have to delete the bad photos and re-upload the normal photos to your post then click orange update button.

    Keep painting....
