oil on canvas

This is the last of the trampoline series, in this incarnation anyway. I loved painting them, but I don't think they have the impact on the white canvas that I was looking for. I'm definitely into painting more and more figures but I don't think these are the "fit" I was envisioning. Still I like them and hope you do too.


  1. She does look like a floating/falling blossom here. I love all your work and its always so diverse...

  2. Suz, You have captured some great body language here and I also love the folds and form shadows in the textiles.

  3. Love the color of the dress and her soft pink skin and light hair. And I also like the white background.

  4. Do the Trampoline paintings have as much impact as the "Bug" series?

    Maybe not. Does that make them any less great? No!

    The "Bugs" were super colorful so of course they had more of an impact against the white canvas.

    But the pinks and reds in the Trampoline series 'pop' in their own right.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, Suzanne. The Trampoline paintings are charming.
