this is an original oil painting on panel, 16 x 20 inches, wired on back ready to hang. Titled: Amelie-An and her ducks
when we used to live in Seattle, I bought Amelie-An a 1920 vintage coat and hat which she wore in the winter there. As we were waiting on the sidewalk for the school bus to pick her up , the ducks always come out to be fed by Amelie-An. She loves ducks and they love her too. The scene looks so much like something Andrew Wyeth would paint so I have to paint it.
Amelie-An was born in Can Tho, South Vietnam in February 2008 under a very dim star. She was abandoned as an infant due to her medical problems which left her disfigured and mentally retarded. I adopted her December of 2008 and fell in love with Amelie-An the moment I first held her in my arms. She smiled at me and I just knew we were meant to be together. The first painting I did was to celebrate the transformation of her appearance after her first surgery. I had not intended to do anymore paintings but I found myself being obsessed with capturing her fleeting emotions. When I paint her it feels like a way to show a uniquely personal side of her that is often hidden by her disabilities.
If you are a big fan of Andrew Wyeth 's work, this painting is for you !
