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.

My grandmother, Rosamond Ethel Dietz, was married in 1920. We are so fortunate to have this wonderful wedding portrait. I'm going to post a series of my progression with painting her, all young and innocent and beautiful.
The photograph is very clear, not too many clues of the real colors. I'm imagining she wore this blue sash. The gown is tiered. Love the chapeau! So Dodie! This was our name for her. We loved our Dodie.
