Ready to Hang
These contemporary abstract trees are textured and have a calming; tranquil feeling, sitting on a blended background on a deep edged canvas - Ready to Hang
This painting is part of a series of Tree Paintings which I created using palette knife and brushes.
I am passionate and I live and breathe my art; I enjoy creating unique, highly textured abstract pieces of art from colourful, bold floral painting on canvas to delicate watercolour birds and flowers and landscapes
I enjoy all mediums and whilst I mainly use Acrylics (including metallic and shimmer paints) I also work with Watercolour, Oil and am currently creating some amazing painting using encaustic paint.
I have been painting on and off for most of my adult life, but have not indulged much untill recently and have now found a revived passion.
WHO AM I Hi I’m Sue a UK artist living in a beautiful Welsh seaside village, with Tony my Husband; Frank our Black Labrador and our Tortoiseshell Cat Quando - yes she was named after the song by Pat Boone I have no formal art training and am 100% self taught, I have been painting abstract art at weekends and evenings since my early teens and I absolutely love it I’ve always had a 9 – 5 job working in an Office, a Bakery, Dog Kennels and I was also a Singer in a band for a few years. I’m now a full time Carer for my Hubby and paint daily. WHAT I DO I create one off original paintings, I never replicate them. I mainly use acrylic paint but like to dabble with oils as well. I don’t follow ‘a style’ per se. I paint what I love, what inspires me and I hope this is conveyed in my paintings. I want the viewers of my paintings to enjoy what their seeing, whether they chose to make a purchase or not. Painting excites me, a shape, a colour, a landscape or a cloudy sky will spark an idea and I try to capture it on canvas. My paintings evoke my emotions, they make me feel Cheerful or Content. Some have a tranquil, relaxing effect with soft tones and delicate brush strokes; whilst others are bold, vibrant and break away from traditional ideas bringing a feeling of exhilaration and excitement. MY BACK STORY I was brought up on a Council Estate and went to a Comprehensive School, I have no academic achievements to speak and had my first job doing a paper round when I was 12, I left school early at 15 and got a job. My parents worked hard to provide for me and my sisters, Mom was a Dinner Lady and Dad worked in a Factory. Although we lived in poverty and didn’t have much, we were happy and cared for; what we lacked in material items we were given a much greater gift - love and encouragement. One of the earliest presents I remember being given, I think for my 6th Birthday was a box of crayons and a colouring book. I treasured them. I would sit for hours on end colouring in and often sit on my Dads knee whilst he taught me to draw. I live by the values my parents taught me, to care, be compassionate and be grateful. I am honoured and grateful that my painting are in collectors homes all over the world. Thank you for taking the time to read this Warmest Regards Sue x
