FLYING . . . IN THE CLOUDS - SOLD!


AND WITH MANY THANKS TO 


So very fortunate in today's world to have gallery 
representation and am very honored to have been 
carried by Tirage Art for over a decade!

With many embracing the world of technology, the brick
and mortar shops have been falling to the wayside. Yet there
is nothing like going in person to view original art. I don't
care how many pixels / per inch a computer screen has, for
it's deceiving to the original scale. A viewer may be impacted
by very small images with great detail, as opposed to a very
large and simplistic rendering. So please remember your
galleries! They are so important to the livelihood of artists
and the gallery owners, as well as promote original art. 

So with humble thanks to Tirage Art, here are pictures of
just a few of their very recent sales.

ORANGE + BLUE RIBBONS - 5" x 5" pastel by Susan Roden

ORANGE + BLUE RIBBONS*
5" x 5" pastel on paper
*no mat nor frame
$50 + $5 Insured shipping


It has been quite a while, but I have finally returned
to "blogdom"! In the interim, I had moved from sunny 
San Diego to sunny Albuquerque, which is glorious in it's 
own rights. Having lived here nearly two decades ago, it 
feels as if I've returned home. 

I have not settled into permit dwelling, so painting
on the fly. And what would be more apropos than
a colorful, original sky?

The skies in Albuquerque have so much movement, 
particularly during sunny days, which I will
be showing more later.

Please note since I'm in temporary housing, that this
little sweet sky is not framed nor matted, which has 
been reflected in the cost.

It was a day of confusion . . .  a day of questions.

A day of black moods . . .  a day of hurt feelings. 

But above all . . . there was a burst of hope 
above the clouds.

MEMORIES OF YESTERYEAR

VANISHING
10" x 8" pastel + gold leaf
PRIVATE COLLECTION

The start of a new year stimulates celebrations, 
memories, good wishes and reflections of the past. 

Regardless of one's religion or beliefs, death affects 
all. I'm posting this painting of mine not for it's religious 
view, but because it was created while my father was 
on his deathbed. Mortality begged me to consider my 
views. My father was the first of my parents to die 
and his passing saddened me greatly. 

This new years I face the realization that both of my 
parents, as well as my in-laws who I loved dearly have 
died. So in between the joyous celebrations, please 
take a moment to remember the loved ones that have 
passed and smile.

supported me in art and encouragement.

Subtle, light, sweet . . . and so soft of a touch!

Last weekend I participated in an open art studio

experience and especially after I have been so consumed 
with daily life. 

It also gave me an opportunity to revisit a few older pieces 
of my art. Above is such a precious light piece that makes 
my heart soar when viewing. Definitely is one
of my favorites!
