Goof-Ball by Susan Bergstrom

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

I decided I had to come up with a process by which I could help my art students learn to use other colors then BLACK for shadows…shadows are all colors combined …

I feel you can learn how to move out of your “color comfort zone” by taking the ceiling off of your thinking…hold your nose and jump in!
This is from a crazy combination of a Red-Bone Hound I had many years ago and a crazy card someone gave me!
I had great fun painting this because like I told my students ..there were no rules, any color was acceptable, just fly, be free!

This is an oil and acrylic painting, 16"X20" on gallery wrapped stretched artist canvas.
Thankis for viewing…

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.
Thanks for viewing my work

    Beautiful portrait of "Goof-ball. Love the vibrant colors, fabulous and
    amusing image. Your students are very fortunate to have a creative
    teacher that encourages exploration of a variety of approaches to
    heighten their imagination and expand their limitations.

  • Many thanks Julie…I don’t like my students to fall into ruts…it is soooo easy if you never walk on the wild side once in awhile!
