Amy Ward is a self-taught painter with works sold to art collectors across the country. She produces innovative paintings that demonstrate an unrivaled sense of color and form. We are hardwired with the desire to find familiar shapes and objects even when there are no literal characters.
Within any painting you can appreciate dozens of layers of activity. The sum total is balanced and t...houghtful, bringing not only a sense of peace, but also a compulsion.
The magic is that this reminiscence will be different for every individual. This is the spiritual connection that you make with the painting on a very personal level. You may like a particular piece very much and never know what the attraction really is.
Amy shares that collectors find new and interesting things in the composition that they hadn't noticed or connected to the first time they saw it.
"These are paintings to interact with. The artwork created is not simple, in fact, there is no end of discoveries to be found in any one painting. It takes time to grow to love every nuance of every stroke, yet there is an immediate infatuation that will compel a collector to take it home and begin to fall in love."
This piece is currently being displayed at the Bjornson Vineyard tasting room in the Eola-Amity Hills.
Misconceptions on 3rd
Fine Art by artist Amy Ward - Description: This piece was created live while visiting R Stuart tasting room on 3rd Street in McMinnville, Oregon during a wine tasting. A unique opportunity to incorporate not just the visuals of the busy street, but the personalities too. The title was encouraged from an overheard conversation during my session.
