T Minus 2!

And counting! I started packing today and think I am just about ready for our European odyssey. I even have Euros in my wallet!

Here is what is hot off the easel just before I leave:

Ballerina # 42 / oil on linen panel / 16 x 12

Ballerina #43 / oil on linen panel / 16 x 12

Work in progress - portrait study / oil on cardboard / 12 x 16
Next stop Amsterdam! Happy creating everyone - I look forward to seeing all your new work once I get back home!


  1. Look forward to hearing all about it when you get back Susan.

  2. As Usual. Lovely paintings Susan. Have a wonderful holiday. And hurry back. All the best Susan.

  3. I love this new face on the ballerina - her dark hair is great.
    I am so excited for you and envious too. Visiting the van Gogh museum will be one of the highlights of your trip. Keep a diary - invaluable when you return!
