Still cleaning! I found this blast from the past in the closet in the hallway downstairs. Even found my old portfolio from FIT! I thought I wanted to be a fashion illustrator at the time. Great school, amazing fine art department. I often wish I had been more attentive during my time there.
Anyway, this was from my pastel period. I was a Daniel Greene devotee. Even interviewed to be an assistant at his studio farm upstate. Trial husband had just left and I wanted to lose myself in art. It would have meant quite a reduction in salary, a little shed to sleep in and trip to the main barn to use the facilities. I wasn't chosen anyway but if I were younger at the time and didn't own a home that I wanted to keep, it would have been amazing. Accommodations aside, one on one instruction from Mr. Greene was part of the deal!
But that would have meant no Tim and that is just unacceptable.
love the peaches Suzanne!! Was this a sanded pastel paper?ReplyDelete
I was drawn in by the peaches that I can almost smell from far away, but your story is compelling and full of mature wisdom...ReplyDelete
Trecking in for the facilities is something I might have considered in my youth but perhaps I am just dreaming that! It is wonderful to read your passion for the art and possible instruction but the realist in you would not trade what you have and where you are now I imagine. Love this...
I love your peaches.ReplyDelete
"I eat them....!"ReplyDelete
Wonderful work Suzanne.
Un saludo desde Bilbao.
I really enjoyed reading the snippets of your past! I feel like I know you better already!ReplyDelete
I don't think you need to learn from anybody - You are already at the top of your game, that's for sure! We can all just wish we could be taught by you instead :0)
Well these are some darned gorgeous peaches on a beautiful countertop! I too love hearing snippets of your life, Suz. Wish we could get together over coffee or wine or something. I owe you an email too. I haven't had a spare minute with M being out of town but I want to write tonight!ReplyDelete
When you stumble upon some of your older work, don't you wonder why you still own it? Some paintings are so lovely, it's a wonder they never sold. That is the case with this lovely peach.ReplyDelete
Ahhhhhh, Suzanne...your work takes my breath away...daily.ReplyDelete
The lighting on this work is wonderful done, the peaches just glow,ReplyDelete
Happens to me all the time, open up my closet and there is a masterpiece that I forgot all about:) These peaches are amazing!! Fabulous works and I'm going to Daniel Greene's work.ReplyDelete
Pastel... how about that ! is there anything that little Suzanne cannot do? I think NOT ! I can almost taste these... It even inspires me to paint a little bigger... No matter how small the subject matter may be ! you're amazing, as usual, and obviously, you always have been !ReplyDelete
Wonderful and delicious!! I chose Peaches as one of my favorite paintings today on Rosa's Picks! I hope you'll come and check it out! Thanks, RosaReplyDelete
PS. Two paintings in a row!! That is unheard of... Well done, Suzanne!
I so admire the honesty in your words and your paintings, Suzanne.ReplyDelete
Your right about some things in life are unacceptable,,ReplyDelete
we cannot live with out the ones we cherish.
The "Peach " is total amazement
Your work is so good! Love the story about Daniel Greene.ReplyDelete
Wow, this is a beauty.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your "peachy" blast from your past!There's nothing "fuzzy" about this sumptuous study Suzanne!It simply... glows!ReplyDelete
It is wonderful ... for any artist at any point along their journey to look back and discover that their work in that moment... measures up to the present! The tide comes in... the tide goes out. That's how creativity plays with one... isn't it!
I really enjoyed the addition of fruit to your daily "food" choices Suzanne! Thanks for hauling out that piece of "Yesterday" and for sharing it!
Absolutely amazing! The light is beautifully painted.ReplyDelete
Love your Daniel Greene story!
Thank you all so very, very much! I will treasure each and every generous comment! And thank you for following my work!ReplyDelete
What a great glow you achieved!ReplyDelete
The story about applying to be a Daniel Greene assistant is fascinating. So one has to sleep in a shed to be allowed to sit at the feet of the great master? ;)
Gorgeous work Suzanne! I love how fuzzy and glowing they look! And I LOVE Daniel Greene! That would have been so awesome, but I agree definetly not worth it if you could not have had Tim. :) Loved the story Suzanne, and it is a treat to see your work and hear your stories, I <3 following you. :):)ReplyDelete
Love the peaches! Now I'm craving one.:) I love following your blog and reading your wonderful stories!ReplyDelete
This is a real winner Suzanne! The tones and colours are just delicious in themselves - those peaches are glowing! They look sunlit, delicious, welcoming...wow! Would love to see more pastel pieces from you.ReplyDelete
They do seem to glow! The colours are fantastic, they are some nice juicy peaches ready for eating!ReplyDelete
