Thank you so much M David. What a wonderful way to start off the new year, hearing your kind comments. I love hearing your description of the piece and will keep those juxtapositions in mind for my future work. Thank you for the support and feedback... it gives me even more encouragement and motivation to continue making art. Happy New Year to you and your family!

M David 1/1/2014 | 1:02 PM

My husband and I love the piece we just purchased. (Wolf). It is the perfect blend of the feminine and the masculine, fantasy and realistic, rugged and refined. It speaks to me on many levels. I look forward to seeing more of your work. God bless and Happy New Year.

Dear Amber, I recently taken delivery of your piece titled "About so much to say" and should have it framed in a week or two. Im really enjoying it and I think my friends will too since I frequently entertain at home, do keep in touch and look forward seeing future work, Clive from Dubai x

Hi Jackie! Thank you for the lovely post. It is beyond amazing that my stuff is helping inspire you to make it to art school, because I feel like I was JUST that age and longing to go myself. It feels like yesterday! You must be super excited. Enjoy this period of your life, it holds nothing but endless possibilities. If you ever want to write, or send me some photos of your art, feel free to! I'd love to see your stuff. And I can show you a couple others of mine that didn't make it on to Ugallery. Good luck with everything fellow artist!

Jackie 11/11/2010 | 10:13 AM

Hey, Amber! I'm a senior in high school this year. Your work inspires me to make it to art school in the near future. I hope to one day purchase a piece. Thank you again for your work. I absolutely love it! :)

Amber Flora Dixon 9/8/2010 | 3:28 AM

Thank you so much M Kenig for taking the time to write and the kind words. It can be discouraging trying being an artist sometimes, but comments like yours and knowing that someone out there is intrigued and cares, truly gives me a rush and reminds me that all this is worthwhile.

M Kenig 9/7/2010 | 10:36 PM

Amber, I have to agree with Case, "Wrapped Up" and "Jessy" are spectacular. But there is something about "Never Alone" that just draws me. Keep up the great work.

Amber Flora Dixon 5/2/2010 | 11:43 PM

Thank you Case! I really appreciate the support, it means the world to me : ) The paintings will be waiting, and in the meantime I'll try to get some more up for you to enjoy. Thanks again- you brightened my day!

Case 5/1/2010 | 10:37 AM

Amber, I am hoping "Wrapped Up" and "Jessy" are still available in 1-2 years. I'm saving up to buy them. They're incredible. I love it. I can't wait to see more from you. Good luck with your passion and career!

Morgan 6/23/2009 | 2:29 PM

Hi Amber - Just purchased Eyes Behind Flower, can't wait to see it in person. I really love your artwork! thanks and good luck!

I graduated from CSULB few years back. I never like to work on portrait but you gave me a different view. Cool stuff.

Amber Flora Dixon 12/13/2008 | 4:16 PM

Thank you S Runyan! I really appreciate the comment, tremendously, and am very glad you like the Blues painting. I'm sorry if it's on the expensive side, but big canvases aren't cheap for students these days =( and also, the ties are my grandpa's, so it's a little sentimental. I haven't added any artwork for a long time unfortunately, but definitely will be soon during winter break... so keep on checking back and you might find another you like! Thanks again for taking an interest!

S Runyan 12/13/2008 | 1:46 PM

I love your artwork! I have been looking at your profile all day! The blues piece is my favorite! I just wish I could afford it

Amber Flora Dixon 1/30/2008 | 1:50 AM

Milky- I am sorry it took so long for me to answer! The lyrics are from an Avril Lavigne song. I don't necessarily like her, but the words of the song really hit home for me. Hope you are enjoying it.

Milky 5/15/2007 | 12:12 AM

What is the origin of the lyrics from your "Lyric Hair" piece? Is that your own words or from elsewhere?

Milky 3/14/2007 | 12:59 PM

I just bought Lyric hair. It looks even better in person. Thanks.

Milky 1/22/2007 | 3:13 PM

I love your artwork. The pieces Green portrait, Lyric hair and Music man are really sweet. Look forward to purchasing a piece from the site.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

The words in the bottom left corner say, "But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you." It is a line from the William Butler Yeats poem, "When You Are Old." I used oil, acrylic, and house paint for this piece. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
