Award winning Florida Artist Speaks at next JWS Monthly Meeting- 4/25/06
Award Winning Florida Artist and FWS Vice President Sue Reynolds
Guest artist at JWS April 25th Monthly Meeting, 7:00 p.m.
A word from Sue … “Being a visual artist is like taking a journey…”
One knows the destination desired, but the things you may see or places you pass through on the way are unknown. Experience makes the journey easier but for me it is always very intuitive and unpredictable. That is the fun and excitement of how I process a painting.
My work is strongly influenced by nature. There is an incredible range of rich color in sunrises, sunsets, shaded places, foliage and the silver and gold glistening of light on water. Nature also provides a wonderful variety of shapes, lines and textures in mountains, rocks, clouds, plains and waters.
Sometimes painting can result from emotional mood or feeling, and a willingness to let something happen. I use everything to apply paint; brushes, sticks, objects, fingers. My mediums are watercolor, acrylics, crayons, ink, charcoal, pencils, rice paper and substances for texture applied to board, paper and canvas. Whatever way the paintings are born, I have a great time.
