Latest at Landmark Gallery

I sent 4 new paintings to Landmark Gallery in New York City last monthBenedictum by Susan Krieg. I had a model come to my studio in November 2010. I always enjoy photographing the model. People have so many facets to their personalities. I consider it a privilege to get to see some of their different sides.

The young lady that modeled for me knew that I was intending to use her for basic positions, from which I would create my traditional  more stylized figurative work.

In my stylized work the model represents all women. She is the essence of woman.

Blessings by Susan KriegI didn’t realize until after she left, I had taken more than 400 photos.

She was a wonderful model. She easily flowed from one position to another.

These four painting were sent to Landmark Gallery in New York City. It’s located at 119 West 57th Street (if you happen to be going to NY). I think that’s about 8th Avenue, maybe a block from the South Side of Central Park.

They all have spiritual titles: Benedictum,  Blessings, Prayer and Sanctus. For me, they Prayer by Susan Kriegrepresent that meditative space of prayer, counting one’s blessings, having gratitude and just being present, in Grace.

I’m working on a new painting from this model in my portraiture style. I’ll post it as soon as I’m done.

Sanctus by Susan Krieg

    I love your older style of painting women & what these four represent. However, I have fallen in love with your new style of portraiture too. Keep up the old & the new!
