This past summer I had too gorgeous pots of cactus zinnias. I planted them from seed and they grew to 3-4 feet tall in pots that honestly were not large enough for them. I had to brace these pots between heavier ones just to keep the zinnias upright. But they did have such beautiful flowers. This is one of my new indoor/outdoor paintings. You can purchase and view more of them on my other website: SusanMSpohn.com
Decided to paint on of the larger sized indoor/outdoor paintings today. Lots of happy colors in the painting to brighten any patio, porch or sun room. Visit my other website for purchasing details. SpohnStudio.com
Another colorful painting, bright and cheery that I hope will speed springtime our way... but of course we will probably have another 3 months of snow and cold.
These new indoor/outdoor paintings make an interesting pop of color indoors, or they can be placed in a sheltered area outdoors. Visit my other website for more information and to view other paintings in this series. SusanMSpohn.com
Here is the second painting of the day. I had already sketched this painting out on the board last week. The textured board I paint on creates interesting lines and movement in these paintings.
This painting can be displayed indoors or outdoors on your porch, patio, sun room or even in your garden. I do recommend an area that does not receive full sun. These paintings are varnished and have a beaded and twisted wire hanging system from the top of the painting. Visit my other website to see more of these paintings. SusanMSpohn.com

Show will be held at: WHERE CityArts Factory, Magic Gallery | Orlando, Florida, USA WHEN Thursday, March 20, 2014 | 6-9PM Show runs March 20 - April 11, 2014 WHAT Twitter Art Exhibit: Orlando Benefiting The Center for Contemporary Dance, Special Needs Classes Twitter Art Exhibit: Orlando is
the fourth installment of an open international exhibition of handmade
postcard art for charity, donated by hundreds of participating artists
from around the globe.
While the first two exhibitions were held in Moss,
Norway, the third installment held in Los Angeles marked the global
launch for the concept by founder David Sandum, a Swedish-born artist
who conceived Twitter Art Exhibit as a vehicle for doing good through
social media and online community-building. The idea is simple: artists
around the globe receive a call through Twitter social media to create
original postcard-sized art, which they mail to a local curator, who
then exhibits and sells them to benefit a local charity. Artists must
have a Twitter account and interact with exhibition organizers to
participate, and help seed the event.
In its first year, Twitter Art Exhibit received postcards
from over 260 artists in 24 countries, raising funds to buy 221 new
children’s books for a struggling library in Moss, Norway. The second
installment received entries by 360 artists in 32 countries, raising
$4,000 USD for an abused women’s shelter, also in Moss. The 3rd
exhibition held in Los Angeles raised $7,000 for an organization
mentoring underprivileged young adults in preparation for careers in the
visual arts, attracting 502 artists from 35 countries, with a total of
726 postcard entries received.
Social media plays a major role in Twitter Art Exhibit.
It is our intention to tweet, share, seed and promote our artists to
thank them for their participation, and to make this event a huge
The event will be highly publicized and well attended by
art buyers and enthusiasts, members of the press, local artists and the
community, as well as by The Center for Contemporary Dance Students and

This fall landscape was painted using my knives. It is a very textural painting. These knife paintings are very interesting. They have so many wonderful swirls of color, you never get bored looking at them. They read well from a distance and as you get closer they look more abstract. This painting is for sale on my website: SpohnStudio.com
Below you will see the value study for this painting.
