I bought a bag of these green apples recently, thinking about pie. But first they are taking a detour into a couple of paintings due to their beautiful color. In this piece, they are posed gently reflected on a polished wood surface with a dramatic black background, bringing forward the vibrant greens. This piece is on stretched gallery wrapped canvas with the edges painted black. It is varnished, wired, 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.
