Artist Statement: "Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been fascinated with color and design. The simple wild flowers along the roadside and the ever changing skies never cease to capture my attention. Art is everywhere! As I continually observe the world in which we live, I’ve learned that a beautiful idea may take shape on the picture plane if my senses are trained to notice, to be curious, to examine, to imagine. Such intense awareness brings life to my paintings. It is my hope to bring you joy and to reflect images of God's glory through art. I experience fulfillment when I paint, and consider art a gift from God that must be cultivated. Whether I’m painting a landscape, a still life, or a portrait, my purpose is to bring life to the piece, and capture the subject with an eye toward realism, giving it depth and dimension through the use of shadow and light. I choose to focus on subjects of beauty, meaning, or sentiment. Art is to be enjoyed, to convey meaning, and to stimulate thought, and is a means of creative expression for the artist and the viewer. Art and the process of creating it makes me come alive!" ******************************************************************************************************************* Prior to this year's oil painting entry in Art Prize, Susan L Anderson has primarily worked in the mediums of watercolor, acrylics, and colored pencil. She studied privately in these mediums, and has been self taught. When the concept of this year's entry was born in her heart, she knew she needed to expand her horizons. After a concentrated effort to learn oil painting, she embarked on a journey to bring forth TRILOGY - Hope, Thrive, and Wound. Susan is passionate about creating art, and believes it is a way to express what is in her heart. Painting will be a lifelong quest for her. She has taught young children in educational settings, and currently works at Spectrum Health Hospital. Susan resides in Grand Rapids, MI, enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and savors time outdoors along the Michigan coastal landscape.
