"Thankful Rest" Amish girl with bike , oil landscape daily painting

It's good to be back to my daily painting routine after traveling through Ohio meeting Annie's family and introducing her to mine. Many of the paintings I am working on now are from the pictures and sketches I made there.

I first thought this is a old Dutch scene, but then I wrote the tittle, ...

It looks soooo Dutch!

Rene, Many of the Amish have Dutch heritage and even seem to talk with a Dutch accent.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am so envious you get to observe the Amish in person. I find it a beautiful and amazing culture. This image reflects just that.

Thank you Bob!

Hi Sheila! The Amish I had the privilege to meet were very gracious even when I made a nuisance of myself with the camera.

Thanks for your kind comments!
