It was the portrait hanging in the window that pulled me into The Paris Market in Savannah, Georgia. The store was showing several of Amy Lind’s paintings. I was smitten with the luminosity of these beautiful portraits and how Lind renders her contemporary subjects in a traditional method–with some serious skill.
The Jolly Joker and the Gentle Giant
You can read all about Amy Lind on her website, see more paintings in her gallery, and follow her on her blog. Seriously, I would love to just watch her paint while I sit in the studio eating pralines and take-out from Paula Deen’s…y’all. I could learn a lot!
