The original Cows in a Field painting was my very first real painting created while living in a small farmhouse on a horse farm in Kentucky, where a herd of charlois cattle would watch me. And me them. Their curiosity and my fascination paired up for my very first painting...and my very first cow painting ever.
That oil painting sold and was later recreated in mixed media; the cows' poses being the same as in the original. The newer painting also sold, and prints are now being made into Su San Fans!
Newest in the Su San Fan line are fans from my prints; here's the Ladies in the Hot Tub made into a fan! They are going for $9, and are available online (contact me) or at Sara Schneidman Gallery in Culpepper, Va.
I made this fan for my neice's upcoming wedding. I think hand fans are essential in this heat, and wedding fans are the perfect solution for out door weddings! This one was made from the Bird of Paradise flower used on the couple's invitation; the original fan goes to the bride....(there are 7 other originals, until I had the bright idea to start making copies.)
A new business is in the making....Su San Fans! I've got a million (at least) ideas.....
Well. I HAVE been painting! I survived the worst winter on record by painting an 8 piece bedroom set (very pretty), 2 closets (amazing!), and 2 bathroom vanities.
This lovely spring I have painted an entire covered porch from top to bottom (the best part being the icy skyblue ceiling) (well, there's one little place I can't reach yet, as you can see).
Seriously, I have just finished a painting which I'll post next week. I've been inspired by taking an online "Taking Flight" class by Kelly Rae Roberts http://kellyraeroberts/, and by having some cards accepted in a lovely gallery in Culpepper, Va http://www.saraschneidman.com/.
