This landscape depicts one of my favorite spots--an aspen grove near the shore of Silver Lake in the eastern Sierras. In October, the aspens are at their peak of color and the air is crisp. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished gray edges. It comes varnished and wired 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.
