Here is another piece featuring these beautiful Granny Smith apples, this time with an antique bentwood chair with a caned seat. The graceful curves of the chair's back beckons a little pygmy nuthatch who perches, curious about the bowl of apples and whether maybe there might be a nice worm in one? This piece is painted on gallery wrapped canvas with the edges painted black. It is varnished, wired in the back and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Susan

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.
