This is an end-of-winter portrait of an imaginative girl, who feels cold and tired of harsh weather. But she wears a red beret, which feels warm and protects her somehow.

Getting to Know Suzanna

Suzanna Orlova exclusively uses shades of red and black in her watercolors. This is largely because she was born color blind. Her vision deficiency did not stop her from being interested in painting at a young age, and honing her skills as a self-taught artist. Suzanna’s work is haunting, eerie, and emotional. The painterly realism she employs in capturing her subjects is technically remarkable for the water-based media she uses. Bordering on surrealism, each painting leaves the viewer feeling deeply moved. Suzanna lives and works on Vancouver Island, Canada.
