Doesn't this painting just make you smile? I can't look at the beautiful colors and composition without cracking a grin. Lucky me, because it now sits just outside my kitchen, where I'll pass by countless times a day. I'd been admiring this for weeks as Amanda worked on it in the studio she has created in her room, so tonight she brought the finished product to me as a gift! (Incidentally, this is her first oil painting!)
Amanda based this painting on Leonid Afremov's Amsterdam. It is on a 16x20" canvas and took her about two months to paint. On seeing the end result hanging she commented, "I've graduated from the fridge to the wall!"
