Piece description from the artist
This painting is about my love of nature and desire for a harmonious world. The creatures are purely from my imagination. Wow, this painting took a long time to design and then ink in. I use a crow quill pen and indelible ink. I also work on Aquabord so the painting, although done in watercolor, is able to be varnished and framed in a floater frame. The background is an iridescent copper.
This painting welcomes you into an imaginary world where you create the dialogue. One never knows if a couple are getting it together or gossiping. And beware the snakes in the grass. they just might surprise you.
This painting took several weeks to complete.
Susan Medyn is an artist who began making watercolors 45 years ago inspired by her love of color and deep fascination for the work of Henri Rousseau. She could not keep herself from drawing fantastical creatures. As she developed her style, she began to view her works as imaginary worlds where one could reside peacefully, playfully and harmoniously and even dangerously. She makes dense color filled jungles inhabited by all sorts of creature’s both real and imagined. Susan works to balance color, humor, fear and a restrained elegance within her work. She has recently begun using antique maps and sea creatures as a format for painting the South Coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Susan has exhibited locally, nationally, as well as internationally in Monaco, Poland, Belgium, Paris and the Loire Valley, France as well as in the USA . She participates in the annual South Coast Artists Open Studio Tours annually.
