It turns out that Sue not only takes fantastic photos of birds, which flock to her doorstep with wild abandon, but she paints them beautifully! Sue has a collection of flower vases up the whazoo and takes divine photos of them....
Flower Vase watercolor by Suzanne Smith
And then she paints them too!
Did I mention Sue's garden..well Sue lives in North Carolina but she definitely has a green thumb!
Sue started a blog recently and you HAVE to visit puleeeeze! A Brush with Color -It's a daily delight full of her photos, paintings and great quotations like:
"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.”(Claude Monet)
God gives every bird his worm, but He does not throw it into the nest.”(P D James)
When I was showing off my messy studio I begged Sue to show hers... She sent me this photo and self-effacing note, This is all I have for a studio...
Sue has even painted her studio! This would be a near impossible task for me I fear...Sue has just done a book on Blurb and is gently nudging me to do one...
Please take a look. It's lovely!
Sue doesn't know I'm doing this post...she might decide to sue me. I hope not :)
PS all photos and watercolors are by Suzanne Smith(c) (except for Yellow Bird..)
