Painting

A few examples of my work.

I paint with anything, on anything, but love the richness of oils best. Much of my work is commissioned but I enjoy painting too much to charge extortionate prices and I get such a glow from knowing someone loves a picture enough to want to live with it!

      Thank you! I love colour. I used to try and chase reality with a brush. I lack that skill πŸ™‚ So I paint the things I feel now instead. They don’t need to reflect reality in the way of, say, a photograph. Just as vivid as I feel them.

  2. These are wonderful paintings Sue! Do you sell your art, or just create for your own pleasure? I have painted a few pictures in recent years, never believed I could before. It’s amazing what we can achieve when we put our minds into it!! πŸ˜€

      I sell them occasionally.. its a matter of time these days rather than anything else. Usually I get asked to paint something.. a dream or an idea.. and work to that kind of loose commission. It is always an amazing thrill when someone wants to buy one πŸ™‚ And yes.. we have hidden depths and talents if we allow ourselves to believe we can attempt things. x

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking the post on the Romans! I have enjoyed visiting your blog as a result too – love the artwork – noticed the encaustic art particularly as I featured some on my blog a while ago in relation to a community arts venue and mental health charity I am involved with in Huddersfield. I am looking forward to following your work now.

  9. Wow! Such interesting and beautiful paintings. You have a wonderful talent. I found your paintings ‘Bridges’ and ‘Red Dawn’ speak to me the most – they are so interesting! The way you have painted them awakens so many thoughts and feelings, stories and fantastical things in my mind.

    I paint also, in both oils and watercolors. I have nowhere near your talent though and admire your work tremendously.

      Oh thank you!
      I’d like more skill, but hide behind Picasso’s comment:
      Painting is a blind man’s profession.He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.

      Of course that all falls down when he says you have to learn the rules as a painter in order to break them as an artist πŸ˜‰

    As an artist myself, I salute you, Sue! Your work is not only professional, but beautiful, and I love the way you are able to switch subject matter totally and still maintain your level of freshness and something unique and magical. I don’t know what that area is doing for you, but boy, it makes me want some of it too!!!

    Hi Sue
    I wonder if I might have permission to use a small image (approx 60kb) of your painting, Midnight Echoes, to illustrate a suite of 15 sonnets that I am currently composing? This would be for non-commercial purposes and would include an appropriate credit. My suite of poems also happens to be called Midnight Echoes, and it will be published on a creative writing website, Fanstory.com, that protects the copyright of all illustrations used.

    I really LOVED the poems, the style of writing, and the fact that you gave a short breakdown of the meaning of words and the style. That really helped me to appreciate everything more as the style and some of the language was unfamiliar to me. Good job and thank you very kindly. I love what you are doing on the site for authors of various types and look forward to hopefully being able to join in someday.

      Thank you kindly, Anthony. I love your site and want to become more involved as I am able for certain. Right now my mind is in overwhelm from all the new things I am learning on this site and also on The Silent Eye – a Mystery School. I am definitely going to be recommending you to friends who are looking to write but not quite sure what to do next. This is a really great idea to learn through these exercises and challenges. I absolutely appreciate too that when you suggest writing a poem, you also give how many syllables. What a nice way to teach a skill that everyone should be able to understand. I worked with special needs children and teens for many years, and those with learning challenges, and I absolutely believe that your form of teaching would help any child to not only learn the structure of a poem, but to help them be able to create poetry and other written formats. Good job!
