Susan Sjoberg
Frazier Park, California

Before starting a painting, Susan Sjoberg takes her time looking at her chosen subject closely. She moves around it, analyzes its colors and experiments with the possible layout of her composition. “It appears I am getting nothing done at this stage but this invisible work lays the foundation of the piece,” she explains. Many of her works echo the classical style of still life paintings. The challenge in her work comes with capturing the texture of each element within the scene (for instance, a white lace tablecloth). When she’s not making art, Susan enjoys hiking, horseback riding and spending time outdoors.

I love my new artwork, now I am saving my pennies to commision some more art from Susan. I'd love to have several pictures to hang in my kitchen. I'm addicted to your site. Kathleen

Thanks Michelle. I appreciate your comment and the story this piece tells for you. This is one of the things I love about still lifes: they can tell a story as they capture a moment. This one gets you all relaxed and ready to take a nice tea break with a kind of comfortable elegance.

Susan, this is such a beautiful painting. I love the blue willow coffee cups. This makes me think of a Saturday morning, with toast and marmalade, and planning on doing some yardwork. Which I find to be relaxing.

Susan Sjoberg 10/8/2014 | 6:42 PM

You are more than welcome! I love hearing how a piece fits into its buyer's lives. Thanks so much for your purchase and for letting me know it arrived safely and will be loved.

Beautiful! It came in this morning and is being framed now. It will be perfect hanging in our dining room. Thank you very much.

Susan Sjoberg 9/28/2014 | 6:51 PM

And I can't wait to hear how it fits in your home! Thank you for your purchase. I hope you love it!

Thank you Michelle! Setting the stage for these pieces is so much fun. Often it starts with one small thing then moves out from there. I appreciate your kind words.
