Since retirement, Susan paints full time and exhibits at local galleries and teaches painting. She now lives in East Killingly, Connecticut where she paints the images around her. Susan continues to teach painting classes at Silver Circle Gallery.
Painting not only gives me a sense of fulfillment, but it also enriches and completes my life. Subjects that show life and expression like people, flowers and landscapes are my focus. I have been painting landscapes on a regular basis as well as flowers from my gardens and creating interesting compositions from sections of flowers, focusing on vibrant colors. I usually begin by filling my canvas with a field of color and pushing the limits of realism. The places I visit and the things I see become vivid canvases of color attracting the viewers eye.
Ornaments are $25.00 plus Shipping ( 3 1/2" Diameter)
