Pink Geranium, is another textural floral painted mainly with a painting knife. Contact me to purchase, or visit my booth at the art show, Commonwheel Labor Day Festival in Memorial Park, Manitou Springs, Colorado.

African Violet

African Violet
5 x 7
oil on panel

I was toying with the idea of painting one of my large flower pots outside, but time got away from me. I ended up taking the little African violet from the window sill and putting it next to my pallet. Here is the happy little painting that I painted. I like the how the complimentary colors in this painting make everything pop. Blue and orange, red and green, purple and yellow. This painting is for sale for $55.00 and includes free shipping in the Continental USA until September 20th, 2012.

Colorado Fall

Colorado Fall
24 x 36
oil on wood panel

This landscape painting was painted using 2 reference photos I took last fall. The reds, oranges and yellows may look a bit bright, but that is truly how wonderful the color shone in the bright sun against the blue skies. Fall is the perfect time of year in Colorado. I am often hiking about taking photos during this time of year. It is the only time that the trees can compete with the flowers for outrages beauty.  This painting is for sale for $950.00  Contact me regarding payment and shipping.

Winter Park Arts and Craft Show

I participated in a small arts and craft show up in Winter Park, CO, this past weekend. The weather cooperated and the show was fun. I met lots of wonderful folks. Above, a customer browses through my small daily paintings, choosing one to purchase. To view more of my paintings visit my website at: SusanMSpohn.com

Flowers are planted EVERYWHERE in Winter Park. It is a joy to visit this small mountain town.
The mediums next to Hwy. 40 are all heavily planted in flowers. As an artist and flower lover, this really is paradise! I was fortunate to meet the young lady who plants all these flowers and tends to them all summer long. She enjoyed my floral paintings, I commented on how beautifully this town landscaped with flowers....and that is how we met.
