"Bursting Botanical" - 18" x 18" Oil on Canvas

Original Oil Painting by Suzanne Gibson


"Bursting Botanical" 

is the first in my 18 canvas project for 2018...

and you are invited to see the work as it is produced!!!
Now, for those of you getting a sneak peek of this work in progress,... It is still a blank canvas.  





My goal to produce 18 canvases, that are 18" x 18" in 2018 is now under way.  First of all I posted a survey for image ideas and inspiration... so yes, I've got a pretty good idea of what I'll be working on... the first is my own.... Flowers from my own garden, and then a surprise of IRIS and SUNFLOWERS from the shop --- in JANUARY?  Yeah, I was surprised by the Iris...  Couldn't help myself.  So I'm combining them for this first image. 

I took my reference photos and still have the bouquets on my dining table.... enjoying them... watching the roses open, and irises open daily.  The Sunflowers and Pink Carnations are just glowing.    I will update and post progress pictures as they are ready.  Here are my "inspiration photos" to give you an idea of my color palette and process.

PROJECT 18 - 18" x 18" for 2018

Hi Folks,

Personal Challenge for 2018.



  • If you want to DONATE $18, I will create a canvas for you that will be AUCTIONED off, to raise money for ____________....  I'm thinking of helping the Art Community in the Fire/Flood/Local communities near me.  It's too soon to figure out who, when and where... but the Art G.A.P. will connect and make those details available just as soon as practical.  
  • If you want to DONATE $324, I will host a PAINT PARTY for 18 CHILDREN (who may like to have a little paint and play while their parents are "rebuilding" and "dealing" with their situation.

Time to Paint with my Dad

One of the most recent joys of being an artist and painter is having an Aviator for a dad.  His recent homework has included aviation landscape paintings.  So I started digging through my photo files and found this one.
This is a progress shot for a P-51, it sold to a client dressing up her sons bedroom. 

Time to do more aviation themes with my dad!
