A Nimbus Surrounds Susan’s Studio Garden

Susan Cornelis has done it again~presented us with a completely endearing vignette of one of her painting sessions. I previously wrote about her Symbolic Language of the Soul, and Sketchcrawling. Is it becoming obvious that I love Susan’s work?

Sketching the Spring Garden: Pen and Watercolor with Susan Cornelis, allows us the opportunity to:

[j]oin Susan in her studio garden and watch over her shoulder as she demonstrates a quick capture method of sketching irises and a chicken with pen and watercolor.

She didn’t achieve this alone:  her team includes director/editor Andy Cornelis, and an original soundtrack by Todd Pickering. These two  should hire out . . .  Andy is brilliant at making us feel totally involved in the scene, and Todd’s music fits the “story” in a delicately nuanced way. Susan says she will will be lost when Andy goes off to college, but it seems they have a full length feature in mind before that happens. I would gladly pay a full feature price to see such a movie . . . their work so far has been entirely captivating. Of course, they have an excellent subject to work with.

Nimbus, in case you are wondering, is one of Susan’s Silkie hens. But creating a nimbus (halo, aura, radiance) is a specialty of Susan’s. Many of her works have them:

Susan’s magnificent images are available at her Etsy store, ImagineWithArt. See more at h20 colors, where I especially enjoy paging through her sketchbooks.

You can also watch her ongoing creative endeavors evolve at Susan’s Art and Sketchbook Blog. But don your sunglasses, my friends: Susan’s art is radiant!
