Blueberry Fields in Nov.

After a month of suffering through the symptoms of surgical menopause and life with no hormones or hormone therapy, I'm finally finding the light and starting to paint again. Friends came for Thanksgiving and renewed my zest. I'm working on a few big oils of the radiant blueberry fields for a show next week and a bunch of smaller works on copper.

Just completed my biggest triptic to date ( 30"x90"!) It was so fun.


  1. well. This photo is just nothing short of fantastic. Congratulations on re-joining the rest of the world after all the medical ordeals. You've shown your colors--and not just red. GREAT paintings.

  2. Hi Amanda,

    Celeste's invitation to your blog brought me here and I am so glad to have found you through Celeste.

    Your paintings are gorgeous. Your story compelling and truly courageous.

    I admire you and your work. Happy to have found you here in cyberspace. Looking forward to see your works in 2010 and wishing you continued success.
