"Church Near Schroon Lake" by Susie Morrell

this one is slightly larger than my normal 6 x 6 and measures 6"x8".  I painted this 'plein air' outdoors across a small lake near larger Schroon Lake in the Adirondacks of Northern New York while exploring the area... just beautiful!

"Misty" by Susie Morrell

Feeling nostalgic and abstract as our family gathers for a memorial campfire at one of the places my dad loved most and worked so hard to preserve as a family retreat.  It's been almost a year since his passing and we still can't believe he will not be there to greet us.  He and my mom share a love for music particularly the sounds from the 50's.  One of their favorites was "Misty" a jazz standard written by Erroll Garner which became a signature song of Jonny Mathis.  As I listened to the song, cool colors of blues and greens developed on my palette.  No one image can memorialize his memory so I mixed all the shades of the cool lake and woodlands that surround it.  You can listen to "Misty" as sung by Jonny Mathis by clicking here while you view my painting.  Hug your dad if he is close by or drop him a note of appreciation and love.  I sure wish I could just one more time.....

"Hidden in the Pines" by Susie Morrell

As you drive through the vast landscape of northern Michigan, you see so many farms that just call me to paint them.  This is one I drive by often on my way to Alpena, MI for a drive 'into town' from the lake.

Books/Kaufman Covered Bridge by Susie Morrell

I just love the charm of covered bridges and their symbolism of small-town America.  This one is called Brook/Kaufman and crosses over Shermans Creek just southwest of Blain, PA.  Living in historical Bucks County myself, I thought I would research existing covered bridges in Bucks County.  I stumbled upon a Covered Bridge Driving Tour on one of my favorite sites: Visit Bucks County.  How fun to make it a goal to visit and photograph and paint all 12 existing covered bridges!  Once there were 50 and now the Bucks County Covered Bridge Society is helping to preserve these remaining 12 bridges. 

If you share my fascination with covered bridges, you will really enjoy another site I found called Pennsylvania Covered Bridges... a website dedicated to the preservation and restoration of all covered bridges still standing in PA.  Here is a quote from one of the websites pages:

".... covered bridges recall a time when life was simpler and closer to the land.  Photogenic and often remote from the interstate highways and cities of the twentieth century, covered bridges lure the explorer to find the little streams and dirt roads that the twentieth century has almost passed by."  

This painting was sold as it was drying on my easel by a friend and covered bridge enthusiast.  I hope to paint more in the near future.  Sign up for my blog updates (it's free!) by entering your email address in the box marked 'subscribe' to enjoy my small daily paintings.  I hope it brightens your day!  Most are 6"x6" and come with a cherry wood easel for immediate display.

"White Coneflower" by Susie Morrell

This White Coneflower was inspired by the beautiful photos taken by Joey Randall who writes a wonderful blog called the Village Voice, musings from a     ho-hum housewife.  Her blog is a comprehensive journal of her mouth watering recipes paired with her artistic garden and all things Pure Michigan. Check it out here!

Some of you have commented "how big are your paintings?".  I like to paint small and paint daily.  Most are 6" x 6".  I try to always indicate the size in the description, but maybe these photos will help visualize the size.  I took a photo of the painting on the easel I include when you purchase for immediate display.  If you choose to frame your painting, I recommend a 'floater' frame.  I've shown what the painting looks like in proportion to a tea cup and saucer.  I've also shown you the back so you have a clearer visual of the easel.  Enjoy! and feel free to share my blog with others.  If you would like to get my posts of paintings as soon as they come off my easel,  sign up for my blog by typing your email address in the subscription box in the top right hand corner of my blog page.  You can find it by clicking here!
