i’m jealous of amanda blake

amandablake

Ah, yet another super-talented artist from Portland Oregon. Seriously, what do they put in the water over there? Well, whatever it is, Amanda Blake has obviously had her fair share. These lovely paintings on birch panel are so simple, so sweet, and so beautifully executed. I want all of them… and a shot of that Portland water too, please.

    Come on over! The glass of water is on me : )

    Amanda Blake’s art is great. Another contemporary folk-like artist is Elizabeth Bauman (also an Oregonian).

    Great minds think alike… I have her work sitting in my drafts folder! You guys make some good art over there, and yes, I will take you up on that free glass of water… who knows what I’ll be able to create after I drink it!
