Suzanne Stewart, Austin painter, has joined the blogging world. It seems such a stretch, but I would like to share some insights I have gained. My painting experiences have formed a new and exciting path. Please share your comments with me. What will survive of us is love.
"Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul." Vincent Van Gogh

I had fun with this very large canvas, 24 x 36. We were in Lake City, Colorado, last fall for the phenomenal changing of the leaves. Each day the colors were expanding across the mountains, producing this most amazing effect. Working on this these past few days has been great. Listened to a Tolstoy recording. We had ferocious winds, of the deep West Texas variety. I was happy to be indoors dreaming of Colorado.
"The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible,
but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for staying ashore."
