Such a lovely rendering of this quaint scene! The blending of colors and shadows in the dress are amazing! Your information is very interesting also! I should drive to Lancaster, Pa. and get some reference photos for some Amish paintings. I really enjoy yours. V/F

Marsha Elliott replied:

Thank you for your kind words and support, Angie. I have never made it to Lancaster yet....we have a large settlement of Amish here in Ohio that we visit from time to time, but I do hope to make it to PA someday. Thanks again!

Very nice work Marsha! That is such a great vantage point. Excellent work!

Marsha Elliott replied:

Thanks, Ken.....much appreciated. The vantage point works well here as the painting is more about what she was doing rather than her face.

Lovely. Love the glow of light behind her.

Marsha Elliott replied:

Thank you, Jenny....always love to hear from you.

Marsha, this is fanastic! Such a beautiful painting! I love the folds in her dress with all the many shades of purples, blues and pinks - the splendid background - just everything! Lydia will love this painting!

Marsha Elliott replied:

Thank you very, very much, Bette, for your fantastic comment. I really do hope she'll like it. I emailed a link to her today that takes her to the painting so she can see it, but she won't be back in the quilt shop until hopefully, I'll hear from her then.
