 A FINAL EMBRACE
4 1/2" x 4 1/2" pastel
8" square archival white mat, museum glass + gold frame
Sold - private collector

Pictured is one of my past, but much loved sunsets
which is titled in remembrance of a departed dear friend. 
Since it's still within my collection, I will be taking it 
to Patrician Design, unless purchased beforehand. 

And I'm so excited for this road trip! 

Not only will I be having a day-long demo at Patrician 
Design on Sunday, November 10th, but also will be giving a demo 
at the Albuquerque Museum of Art for the Pastel Society 
of New Mexico, on Saturday, the 9th. 

And above all, will be spending some time with my 
daughter and son and their families!

Just an older little, kitchen scene

I still use it in baking when I have ran out of fresh.
What a life saver!

Oh, and if you wondered about the blank Daily Paintwork's
 box, I'm still attempting to iron out the kinks with my
installation of the widget. This will be another venue 
to purchase and view my art.

Ending of AIR + WOOD Exhibit by Susan Roden

            FLYING HIGH         RED WAS THE NIGHT
24" x 18" pastel & gold leaf                     assemblage


Tuesday, October 8th is the ending of AIR + WOOD,

The show was not only a departure from my typical style,
but also quite liberating. The pastels embraced body form 
and motion, whereas the assemblages were creations
compiled from "findings" from the street.

It's always so fun to be daring!
