I've had a little time today to work on the heron painting. One thing I really like about it is the soft mist in the background and how the fog extends to create a border. It's been snowing all day and staying home and painting seems the thing to do.
Artist Susan Sjoberg lives in the mountains of Southern California. Working primarily in watercolor and acrylic, she paints landscape, still life and nature studies in a contemporary realist style. A naturalist at heart, her artwork is profoundly influenced by the disciplines of careful observation and accuracy required in nature study. Regardless of subject matter, her goal in each painting is to evoke a sense of peace and a sharpened awareness of the transcendent beauty found in creation.
Sjoberg has won numerous awards, and her original and limited edition works hang in private and public collections in the US and internationally. She is currently represented by Brown’s Gallery, Boise ID and Fenton/Stahl Gallery in Walla Walla WA.
