Flipping heck! I'm in love. L O V E IT! Do more!
This post was my favorite, Suzanne ! Thank you for that smile!!I as well, like to think that those not here with us ARE still with us sometimes...it makes me feel so much better and somewhat safer.This painting is absolutely Outstanding...perfect colors and so realistic! and I can't believe the size of this painting...I LOVE it..!
Your painting is wonderful and fun interpretation of our Challenge subject, Suzanne. I LOVE it. Thank you for sharing the scale photo, too. WOW!
WOW! Love this! You nailed those highlights! Love the wips, the size, the highlights! and the whole thing would be great with biscuits and gravy! Just wow!
Love the depth of color and seeing how big it is, very cool! Who knew eggs could be so lovely.
Mind blowingly good! and I love seeing both the scale and stages. I feel like I should be making toast now! Big toast! haha-
That canvas is massive! Great work, Suz, though honestly that comes as no surprise! I have to agree with you about the crow and Tim. I love that you are so busy and so enjoying it too! Wish I lived near an artist mentor. I guess my daughter would be as close as I have to a mentor. She always answers my art questions.
Love the eggs and the scale. The progression shots are exciting. So great seeing the big work. Awesome.XOXO Barbara
What a treat to wake up to this great post. First - I adore this painting. Simple and powerful in design and execution, allowing the viewer to have an emotional response to it. Second, I love the bird and Tim relationship. I have no doubt it is true as you see it. The feather confirms it. Great idea to show size comparison.
Once again, my crazee friend, you have nailed it! Such a happy interpretation...good reflection of your state of mind. So proud of you, and Tim (in crow suit). OF COURSE it was him! Now let's see that crow feather...a talisman.
HOLY COW!!! That is goooooooorgeoussssss!!! Amazing Suz, I don't know how you do it, because that is such a huge support and it is absolutely perfectly painted. Jaw dropping. I am in love with it, and I don't even like eggs! I love how you talk of being full, and content, and I think that is such a great feeling to have. Tim, and you are right, work that you love really makes such a difference. Also, I am so glad that you kept Tim's feather. I would have done that too. :D

You amazed me again! Yes, loved the egg paintings then when I saw the scale, phew! you blew me away! Love what Mary Maxam said...so funny! You are a part of a lovely artist group here. I enjoy your art and your blog immensely!
Holy smokes! Outdone yourself again! That scale shot is great!
Smile - love - peace. I love your work, this post, the story of the crow, and the picture showing the size of the painting. Thank you! Love it!
Holey Moley, Gunkie! Your eggs are to die for!!! What a fantastic painting!And the feather ... here's to irrationality! :) I'm with you!
Wowee! Gigantic eggs and perfectly done! Love!
what a painting! Fantastic...unbelievably good! Loved the story about the crow. Made me smile.
OH MY WORD!!! Are you serious?! This painting is... I'm speechless! Wow, I can't even express how impressed I am with this piece. It's pure excellence! And the size of it - wow, just stunning! This is a stunning masterpiece, Suzanne! I... I mean WOW! So gorgeous!!!
I actually GASPED when I saw this! Firstly, I thought it was a photo and had to zoom in to realise it was a painting - secondly when I saw the sheer SIZE of it!!! I am gobsmacked!!! You should definitely post more photo's like this. I only wish I could do a workshop with you - what a dream that would be!This has to be one of your best paintings!! And I would have thought just the same as you about the crow. There are some things you can just sense. Trust your instincts - we are born with it for a reason :0)
Perhaps only you could make sunnyside up spectacular, but you did. I love that it is sooo large. Brenda's idea was a good one. (Never discount a feather!)
oh my gosh- total amazement again!!lovetweedles
Wowza! And then some! Well done and thank you for a description of your process with the extra photos. Great idea to post the one showing the full scale.I'm glad you include Tim in your posts and I am glad you are finding signs that validate he is with you always. And I am glad you are working and painting and going to bed content. Knowing all of this makes my day!
wow ! so impressive suzanne
I'll have mine over easy please. Wow I love the grandeur of this piece! Thanks for sharing it. Thanks Brenda for suggesting it. Eggs and a crow story all in one, hum... Are those really chicken eggs??? Your painting is remarkable. So glad Tim told you to get back to work. Your work is stunning!
Wow! You rock, this is outstanding. I would have never considered painting this so large but it works. I absolutely believe the crow was Tim saying hi, we have to be open for signs.
I am sure I already commented on these eggs...but I had to come back for a second look. They are obviously French eggs. I can tell because of the deep orange hue and I know they have intense flavor. I need to go fry a couple right now!
Hi there Suz!... Yer take on the double yolks really hits the mark... as usual in composition... colour and pure... superb draughtsmanship! And the scale???... really ramps up that omelette possibility!! HA HA!The yolk's on you dear! HA HA!!! Love your raven/crow analogy. In Haida West Coastal mythological tradition... Raven restored Light to the world! Tim = Raven.... What a great new spin on that magical story!Good Painting!Warmest regards,Bruce
Love the eggs -- and the self portrait, Suzanne. You're digging in and doing great things.Rose Hohenberger
Wow! Very impressive. So strong.
