Additional Description:Finger painting Oil on panel. Since I finger paint I've found that a wood panel is able to withstand heavy, thick and large strokes of paint without the sag in an traditional canvas. I also wanted an added richness to my newly found technique and now offer a white floating frame with each painting. This adds a polished look to each piece.
‘At eventide, the cerulean skies assumed a deeper tone of velvety purple on which was displayed the rare jewels of the heavenly caskets.’
Artist StatementWhat I want to give is a picture of an artist’s heart, my heart. I use simply the fingers on my hands, oil, and canvas. In a world of ups and downs, a positive expression immortalized on canvas can have a stable, meaningful influence in a room and in a life.
Artist BiographyAmanda Wathen is an emerging artist, working primarily in oil. She has painted since childhood and began working professionally at age thirteen, hand painting murals on tile. Between then and now, she has taught technique and art history. Her most recent awards and exhibitions are “Cityscapes” 2018 Art Exhibition by Light, Space & Time Online Gallery, winning the Special Recognition Award. ArtAscent art & literature 2017 Distinguished Artist Award. ArtCompetition.net the Honorable Mention Award for the “Emotion and Energy of Color” 2017 Art Exhibition. She paints realism, pointillism, and impressionism.

Recently, Amanda has pioneered new techniques in the field of oil-based touch painting, an emerging artistic trend. Amanda says, "Finger-painting is unequivocally the most expressive. No concentration is lost to cleaning brushes, and no tool divides the artist and the canvas.”

My Favorite Memory
I was sitting in the hospital bed holding my daughter when my two-year-old asked to hold her. I reluctantly asked him to be placed by me and he reached over, kissed her gently and said, "There, there, my Mantha Cake" (Samantha Kate) his sister's name. This was the start of my children's life together. They have been best friends and the light of my life ever since.
