"They Used To Be Amish Girls"
Original gouache and acrylic painting on oversized watercolor paper. This series of paintings was inspired by woven textiles of the ancient Wari culture. I live near a large Amish community and it struck me that the Amish culture was every bit as mysterious to me as the ancient Wari. My Mother owned a store out in Amish country and would always bring home stories about various parts of Amish life. I loved listening to the stories and used them to weave a narrative into this highly stylized way of working.
