This is the exact spot where I spent some time last year when one week later, I was assaulted and sustained a concussion. This year I returned to paint and met a wonderful photographer, Frank Smith , who kindly took my photo. Check out his breath taking images and TED talk . If you're traveling around Bucks County, don't miss Carousel Lavender Farm for an incredible visual and aromatic experience. They have a wonderful shop where you feel as though you've been transported to France and a beautiful herd of llamas. Here's a rear view of me painting.
LOVE the hat!
Susan Williamson Carousel Lavender Farm 8 x 10 Pastel on paper
Painting and drawing was a major part of my life as a child but dissapeared during my teens and through my life as an adult working fulltime in the corporate world. The awakening came one day at the office when I realized that I had to return to art, quit and took a partime job. I began classes at a local art league and painting at home.
Another awakening arrived when I had my first intimate encounter with a dairy cow. Then there was the interview with Temple Grandin...no more eating these beautiful creatures or anything with a mother. My goal is to depict these non-human animals as the sentient, beautiful beings that they are. That's it.
