Amanda Blake

Really enjoying these oil paintings by Madison based artist Amanda Blake. They have such a delicate, evocative quality to them, similar to the kind of nostalgic sentimentality one might find in an old photograph. I think Amanda is also very smart about her background choices, pairing her characters with geometric or floral elements in the background that don't exactly match their clothes, but somehow mirror their personality in a way that ties them into the environment flawlessly. More work on her flickr or website.
