Piece description from the artist
I had sketched the pattern of a creamer while in Munich touring the museums. We were staying at an old castle and breakfast was so civilly served in a courtyard filled with flowering plants. I thought how lovely it would be to use the pattern as a base for a painting. I was asked to submit an entry into a bird show and true to my nature for defying rules, I made a floral painting with 3 birds. This painting is made on 300 pound Arches cold press paper and framed in a black frame which, by the way, makes it look outstanding.
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.
