Susan Love’s bright colors and textures hit the canvas changing traditional western scenes to contemporary paintings. Color pallets are inspired by environment. Paintings start with the warm yellow of dried grass that cover the plains. Greens are akin to the Ponderosa of South Dakota and Wyoming. The clear, bright colors of the skies show up in quantity. Acrylic and other mediums create texture when applied to canvas.
She grew up on the Rosebud in South Dakota and has raised her family in Wyoming. It is no surprise that her art reflects traditional western scenes and classic rodeo shots. Susan paints full time and is committed to creating pieces that put you in the west, where all is good and often exciting. You can find Susan’s most recent works on her Facebook page, Studio21wyoming or at the gallery in Buffalo, Wyoming. In Color Gallery, 38 S. Main St.
We are all drawn to the romance of west. The stories and impressions are branded on our souls. My art reminds us of a love for the way of life on the range and high plains. Layers of dust and light represented in bright colors put you in the moment and renew your connection to the west.
Growing up on the Rosebud in South Dakota and raising my family in Wyoming defines my work. My experiences of this lifelong environment are reflected in my paintings. Textures and marks invite you to be there. Colors of the clear skies, grass covered plains and forested hills influence my color pallet.
Today my studio is full and diverse. Painting and creating daily is an uncharted adventure. My daily paintings are posted on Dailypaintworks.com. Or follow my creative process on my Facebook page, Studio21wyoming.
