In addition to wineries here in central Virginia, there a quite a few orchards including peaches and apples as well as yummy berry farms. This year at the Arts Center in Orange Virginia I decided to create paintings that are a little more contemporary, including some of my favorite fruits from California. I love tradition, but I’m more captivated by a striking splash of rich color on a kitchen wall. The six paintings below include texturing compound and acrylics with pinches of gold leaf, iridescence and collage. Each is 9″ x 9″ on canvas and gallery wrapped (meaning that the image wraps around the edges) so it’s not necessary to frame them. Opening reception is Thursday, August 1, 5-7pm, with show dates of August 1 – September 28, 2013, at The Arts Center In Orange – 129 East Main Street, Orange, VA. Hope to see you at the reception.
These are beautiful, Susan! Wish I could come for the reception.
Excellent work. I like the contemporary, modern flair. I hope you sell everything.
Absolutely LOVE your contemporary fruit art paintings and wish I had more! 😉
My God you have such huge tallent! I never eat at 3:00Am but you are making me hungry. I love how you use color.
Great to hear from you.
Your beautiful painting still hangs in our Living Room.
We get so many nice compliments about it. You are just a wonderful Artist!
Hope you are doing well.

Hi Joe and Janet,
I’m glad we can keep in touch over the years. I am well in Charlottesville, VA where I have two grand daughters (6&7yrs old) to enjoy. The goal however is to get back to CA sometime. My best wishes to you.
