Happy New Year! 2014 was a year of transition as I fully moved my practice to the south shore of Massachusetts.  Winter and Spring were long and cool. Summer was filed with swimming, fishing and plenty of good eats from the sea. Before I knew it, fall was upon us and it was time to make our trek to Bennington for parents weekend (always a delight mixed with a hint of envy). Sunsets have been dramatic year round. The light is wonderful in this area. We have been blessed with good health, loving family and friends and  good food.  Arthur and Bitsy have been steadfast companions.

I am again participating in Leslie Saeta’s 30 in 30 challenge for the month of January. Nearly 1000 artists are participating from around the globe.I am moving outside my comfort zone to explore some more abstract paintings. It is time to challenge myself with some thing different, but I am continuing to make a sea series in watercolor.

Thank you everyone who was filled my blog over the past several years. I am so thankful for your support and comments. Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2015!

  3. Love this direction! Great challenge!

  4. Wow, Susan! My eye was drawn to this one on Leslie’s blog, and I was delighted to read it was yours! Happy New Year! So glad you’re in the challenge!

  5. Susan this is great. I am sitting here looking… looking. Very calming. Happy New Year to you, and Happy painting this month 🙂

  6. Hi Susan, Happy to see you are doing the challenge. I’ve not seen you painting in this style before.,..and I like it. Looking forward to seeing your daily creations.

  7. So glad you are doing the challenge again. I’m seeing a lot more abstract art this time. Love the colors in this one. It’s obvious you are well acquainted with the sea.

  8. I agree with Pamela that abstract art seems to be gaining in popularity. I haven’t taken to it as much though find some paintings enormously beautiful, those that touch me from a color link. Maybe I am just awakening???? Congratulations on doing the 30 in 30 challenge again. I thought long and hard about it but didn’t come up with how it would work for me this time. A huge yay for you my beloved friend.

  9. I love the ‘ginger’ colour in this, it really anchors the whole composition with its ‘weight’. I’ll be pondering colour ‘weight’ from now on. It seems you have had a good year and also moved to Mass. I ran off to Boston once for a week, stayed in a haunted house, visited Harvard and took a train up to Salem (30 minutes). 🙂
