Touching Figurative Paintings of Women by Amy Lind

Amy Lind's figurative paintings offer beautiful representations of women dressed in captivating, feminine styles. The artist casts her subjects in soft colors and filtered light to showcase their gentle, realistic expressions. The styles exhibited by the subjects jump across decades to highlight the best of different beauty trends. Rosy cheeks and soft, voluminous hair popular at the turn of the century show up on some models. The sheath dresses and bobbed hair of the roaring '20s and more modern-looking styles with a classic twist (such as a tank top and flower crown) also make appearances. Flowers are a theme Lind gravitates towards, as many of her subjects are either wearing flowers or are surrounded by them.

The Savannah-based artist modifies her painting style depending on what era she wants to evoke. Some portraits feature clearer, stronger brush strokes for a more modern feel, while others display muted colors and diffused light for a vintage persona. Lind's website notes that “she is sought out by many for her uncanny ability to capture the likeness and essence of those she paints while infusing each canvas with captivating qualities of light and color.”
