Beginning of 24x18 oil portrait of John Pototschnik


Well, that was fun. I enjoyed this session very much. John even tuned in and watched on and off throughout. I sketched it out with one tiny brush and then painted the rest with one large flat natural bristle brush about half an inch wide. Not sure when I'll get back to this painting, but I have high hopes for it.

Hi Susan, this is your new best friend! lol Well, probably the best new friend you met today. I just want to thank you for taking the time to share your advice and the story of your art business journey with me today. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. I hope you don't mind that I linked both your blog and ustream lesson in my blog today along with the photo of the two of us. I really like your work and wish you continued success. Any day painting is a good day. Lynnette Horn

Hi Susan,

I'm always blown away by how clear and certain you are when you paint. No hesitation -- just straightforward to perfection. Gorgeous as always.

Susan, I'm constantly astounded by your confident drawing. You manage to capture the very essence of your painting subject by just looking at it. Perhaps only an artist can fully appreciate the hard work and many years of self training that such a skill requires.
