I haven’t been posting in awhile so it is time to catch up! It has been a very busy winter. I had a knee replacement October 26th. I am happy to say it feels great and I am thrilled to be out of pain. I have been busy making sketches and preparing for summer open studios (if you can imagine that).
I hope you enjoy seeing these pieces. If you are interested in any of these, you should know that they are all framed and available for sale. You can email me at susanmedyn(at)cox.net.

I was asked to make 2 painting for an invitational exhibit based on the book Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin for the Attleboro Arts Museum. This is one of the two created for the show. I enjoyed going slightly demonic in my drawings. This painting is on 300 pound cold press Arches watercolor paper and is framed in a maple frame.
I am working on some new paintings for Open Studios next weekend.
Another in the Susan in Wonderland series.

The poppies are blooming gloriously all over Europe and I love to think of having a party among the fields of them. Although my work is in 2 exhibits in Europe right now, unfortunately I am not.
I learned yesterday that my best cousin, Mary Sue, passed away at her home in Nova Scotia, with her husband and children at her side. Mary Sue battled brain cancer 3 years, outliving the one year prognosis. In her first year of her illness she wrote a book on daily meditations, each one a reason to be grateful. I can’t imagine how her family is going to deal with this loss. She is a nutritionist, and her husband is a cancer researcher. They developed a formula to save children who have a particular amino acid deficiency. Her brother and sister in law’s son and daughter were diagnosed with this rare disorder- Propionic Acidemia. This formula has allowed children to survive much longer than their life expectancy of 6 months to 2 years.
Mary Sue and I spent nearly every weekend of our childhood at one another’s house. We would play day long monopoly games, keeping score, although we always seemed to be even at the end of a month. I will deeply miss her and her deep love for her family, life, good food and good stories.
This is a 6″ by 6″ Ink and Watercolor on Aquabord. All proceeds from the sale of this painting will go toward to the Propionic Acidemia Foundation which is striving for a cure for this rare autosomal recessive disorder.

Sometimes it is interesting to see the works of an artist from their past. This painting was done when I was pregnant with our first child, Anthea. Teddy bears were on the menu. I had been working in a totemic structure with a landscape below. I would often include myself and my spouse somewhere in the painting.
In this one I remember delighting in making a pregnant creature couple. You can see I was influenced by Rousseau from the start of my painting career. I was working in a larger format, 18″ by 24″. This reminds me to stretch myself and make larger paintings.
I still have several of my original works from the late 1970’s and early 80’s. This one was made in 1983. Our cats at the time usually managed to make their way into my paintings.
WHO DESIGNED YOUR CLOTHES?, 12″x9″ Ink and Watercolor, $400 framed.
I don’t watch commercial television very often but last night I was watching a movie on Oxygen and felt assaulted by the number of commercials for spring clothing. I don’t know if there was a time that I ever remember enjoying these commercials but I was struck by the influence they must play if you are watched a lot of TV. Enough of that.
I prefer the lovely clothes these creatures are wearing.
When it comes to imaginary creatures I seem to have no lack of new ones that pop into my head and make it to the paper. I wanted to paint a wild creature who just by looking at her you knew she could tame snakes. Well I think I accomplished that. Possibly even could scare them away.
The flower on the upper right comes from a drawing I made of flowers on a sugar bowl that was on our outdoor table at the Hotel Opera where we spent our last night in Munich. When we went out to dinner we decided to eat nearby and found some lovely outdoor restaurants. Only 2 cars went by during the 2 plus hours we sat and dined…and one of them was a cab. Heaven!
It was wonderful to be in a city where public transportation and clean air is so valued.
This is a 7″ by 5″ Ink and Watercolor framed in a black frame and ready to hang. Bitsy tells me that this one still needs to be at the special Cart(Cat+ art) price of $150 so I am not arguing with her. I already have sympathy knee pain and found out from the orthopedist that I need a new knee. OY! I am hoping to put it off a bit as I have lots on my agenda for the next few months.
And I am going on an Artists Retreat to Cuttyhunk Island in September! Wonderful! This was a very special gift and I will share more next post.
This lime green man is wondering if he is the Apparition or the if the creature from a greek vase is. This was so much fun to paint. I love using strong colors and was able to complement those wild pink flowers and glowing poppies with a dramatic blue background. The tree on the right is gold paint and glows. The colors in the image below are a tad lighter than the actual picture but close.
This painting is 7″ by 5″ and ready to hang. It is framed in a black and wood frame. You can get a better idea of it from the picture below. It is one of my favorites. It is for sale for $195.
The wonderful thing about blogging is you meet so many fabulous artists either virtually or on the rare occasion in person. My most recent open studios started with a delightful surprise. Fellow artist and blogger, Fay Terry stopped in to visit on her way to a workshop in Maine. She is a wonderfully talented woman and totally delightful. I am so thrilled she stopped by and hope that in my travels to North Carolina to visit my sister that I have a chance to meet her and visit her studio.
And I am thrilled to report Bitsy is prancing and dancing when we let her out of her cage. She still is not allowed to jump so I have her on a leash and harness. She is not so keen on that. But she loves sitting on the bed and getting petted! And only 5 more days to sign up for my blog to be entered in a drawing to win a gicleé. It has been a quiet month so the odds are really good this time around. More exciting news next post…
