I absolutely love this artist. On Friday night I went to the opening of her newest show at the Bennett Street Gallery and realized how much her paintings remind me of memories of my own children. Susie says that Mary Cassatt and Andrew Wyeth are two of her major influences, and you can certainly see that in her work. If you are anywhere near the Atlanta area you should check her out, and if you can't make it to the gallery, you can see her work here. Magic Flowers and Creek are two of my favorites, but I'm really dreaming of hanging this one, Touching the Tide over my fireplace.
