It's May now and the summer storms are beginning to roll in already. Wonderfully piled up over the mountains, they are a mass of subtle shading and dramatic contrast. This piece is inspired by the constantly changing landscape they provide as they create streaks of light and shade to the land below. The artwork is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished 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.
