I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.

    it is a beautiful portrait……..very well done, Susan
  • Thanks so much…this piece holds many memories as I was sooo without financial means and thus my supplies were megar at best! I used oil and latex/acrylic paint that I would buy from the paint store in their mis-matched bin for 50 cents a can…I could not afford real artist paint!…So I never sold this painting because it always reminds me where I came from! Thanks for viewing!

    I have work like that, also. I put myself through college…was broke 99% of the time. You just use whatever you can use, to create the art. I goof around some now with my older works…scan them into programs, and fix/enhance them….it is a renewal type of approach, in my case.

    wonderful portraiture of animal. When I started oil painting four years ago, I couldn’t buy canvas too. i painted on board and paper. But it is a good memory for me.

  • Yes…it is not one of my best but it always make me humble!
