In Honor of Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day
I was honored with the request to create a painting from the family who took the original photograph on a very emotional day.
This piece is dedicated men and women who protect our freedom.

This is a 16" X 20" Acrylic Painting
Painted on Artist Stretched Canvas

Thank you for viewing my art.

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

    And what a tribute it is Susan, beautifully painted and so truly captures the level of emotion experienced by so many American families. Very well done, it’s a favorite for me.
