These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Secret Ingredients, and how to use them! When I paint, in Oil, Watercolor, or In the Kitchen (cooking)...  then I often use a line to design, sketch or do some underpainting. Many times a tone of yellow,  mixed with some white and a bit of is used to sketch and block in some shapes and tone the background. A brighter tone mixed with orange? Or a very thin tone with less pigment, knowing it will be toned to blues and greens?   Yellow Ochre

Behind the Scenes: Who is in my back pocket?

Image
Every once in a while it is important to stop and assess where I am and how I got here. It is so important to recognize the important people around you, and  those who have an influence on you and your business and a positive and productive energy that is a compliment to your life, and your business and your overall life and lifestyle.    In our current "Covid" climate it is essential to realize that adaption is needed, as is a little bit of "Thank you" and "Here ya go" to keep us all moving forward. So my Family: yes... of course my parents, brother & husband, as well as my kids...  Certainly support me and realize my spontaneous, creative visions are sometimes like a kaleidoscope... colorful, chaotic, confusing, but ultimately encapsulated for your viewing pleasure! My Friends: Those that show up.... Those that support....  Those that give a shout out....  You know who you are.  Creative supporters who by your very presence keep me functioning behind

Collectors Corners Q&A

Image
As an art collector.... what draws you to a piece of art?  What inspires you to take a closer look? Do you seek out a particular color or theme,  or do you learn about individual artist?  What is important? What do you care about? As an artist I am always seeking that connection.  There's an inner voice that speaks to me that encourages me to share with you. Join me on FB/Zoom for some upcoming chats on Art, New Projects, and a Q & A session.   February: 13 / Love Letters March: 27 / Impression Expression Visit @suzanneartist Put your questions in the comments below so that I can respond during the upcoming chats! Cheers! Suzanne
