Tell Me More


Susan Blackwood paints a variety of subjects, and children are one of her favorites. About this image, the artist says, "God selected this print before I ever painted the original.  He knows that it will speak to many, many people, young and old.  I felt, even as I painted it, that the gardener was the Lord and each of us is like the little innocent child trying to be of help.  He uses what each of us can do for His good.  I am thrilled that my paintings, through Somerset Fine Art, will now be able to speak to the hearts of the world." 

 

Susan also adds, "This painting started with a photo of my niece from years ago.  In the photo, she was playing in a sandbox, but I placed her in a garden, added a kitten similar to one she had at the time, and added the bucket.  I wove this composition together to create this little tender scene in the spring."

About The Artist




Pakistan 1975: in the midst of a clambering market place, unable to speak the language...I became aware of the importance of the common bonds that universally unite us all. The necessity to communicate these visions, feelings and emotions became paramount. Art became my language.

I have chosen as my subject matter the simple, beautiful touching moments that are common both in nature and in the life of every person. These are the moments that often pass without notice and are the very ones that lend continuity to our lives and contribute to its richness and depth. These moments are the language I use when I paint.

As in any meaningful conversation, the structure of the message must be clear. Thus, my color, brush strokes, textures and composition are carefully chosen, like essential words, to convey to the viewer the message that I wish to impart. My studies of classical art techniques began when I was a child and will always continue as I strive for better clarity and higher achievement.

As words are carefully chosen for a poem, I, too, limit my brush strokes and detail to relay just enough to give the viewer my thoughts and involve their imagination. I purposely leave areas of my paintings in mystery for the viewer to become engaged in the story. I strive for each painting to be a poem rather than a novel. Some of my loose paintings are like haiku poems that are simple impressionistic vignettes. While some of my paintings are like sonnets, more spelled out in detail. Through the medium that I have chosen, I strive continually to develop a rich and colorful dialog in a language that will reach the heart. Susan won Best of Show 2010 at the American Women Artists National Exhibition held in Dallas.
