Sumner Crenshaw
Frederick, Maryland

Sumner Crenshaw infuses her work with movement, lines and varying degrees of color. She currently lives in Maryland and finds inspiration in the work of Salvador Dalí. Her goal is to keep exploring the minimalist, narrative surrealism she’s been moving toward. Fun fact: The Ballet Russes inspired her to start a series that explores dance through painting.

Sumner - what happemed to the "Surrender" painting and there was another one = I think it was called I forget the name. I bought "Hiding" and if I like it I was hoping to buy "Surrender" and "Grace Pink???"" . you have removed two of the artwork that was right next to Hiding and is replaced two other paintings that sort of look alike but not the same.
