The Demel family began producing pastries and chocolates in 1786, and its present location is an oasis of old-fashioned charm in the heart of Vienna. This morning, I waited in vain for my subjects at the next table to do something interesting—such as engaging with one another or their surroundings. I finally gave up and drew the scene as a moment of truth, with both women lost in their cell phones. A caution to myself, as I too often miss golden moments while checking texts and emails or looking at images online. #cafedemel #wien #vienna #cafe #lookup #moments #noticing

“We do not judge great art. It judges us.” I always think of this quote by Caroline Gordon while sketching in museums; seeing art and its impact on observers. The paintings seem wiser than us, and often more awake.

Freiman Stoltzfus

Freiman Stoltzfus is a native of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He was born into an Amish-Mennonite family, the youngest of six children. From an early age, his artistic ability was recognized and encouraged, in particular by his mother. He began depicting the people and landscapes of the Amish community.

Freiman studied at The National Academy and Arts Students League, both in New York City. He is proficient in a variety of media, including oil and acrylic paint, pastel, drawing, watercolor, printmaking, photography, collage, and sculpture. His work is inspired by personal interests, including music, the four seasons, poetry, Amish quilts, Gothic architecture, and geometry.

In 2010, he was awarded a residency with the renowned sculptor Greg Wyatt in Hastings, New York. He also studied with the Italian conceptual artist Maurizio Pellegrin and National Academician Rhoda Sherbell.

Freiman has a great love of adventure and has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East. While living in France and Italy, he studied language, music, art, and spent much time in the great museums and churches which have influenced his work.

Freiman's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Pennsylvania, New York, Switzerland, and France. His work is in private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad. He also owns and operates Freiman Stoltzfus Galleries in Philadelphia and Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Learn more at www.freimanstoltzfusgallerycom

I purchased this piece of art from Freiman at an Amish/Mennonite Market in Lancaster, PA when he was just a boy back in 1992.
Question for the experts whats the best way to keep your beautiful paintings clean?
In 1993 my now husband and I lived in Downingtown, PA. We often visited the Lancaster Co. shops. One afternoon we wandered into a gallery to find this lovely painting of a true Lancaster Co. scene. I loved the colors and the faces of the cows. :) It hung in my kitchen for many years until our move to FL in 2001. Would you tell me how old you were when you painted this scene? I remember you being in the gallery that day. You signed the back and sketched little Amish hats with a greeting, "To Erin and Lou with fondest wishes".
