Susan Spears, just sent me this photo of her latest commission piece a 6X6' triptych of Mt Hood, Oregon's most famous mountain. Take a look at her website to see this and other beautiful paintings.
Susan is a popular painting instructor, teaching a weekly class for beginners and advanced painters. Every Friday during the summer months she leads an outdoor "plein aire" painting workshop.
In addition to being an award winning artist, Susan is adored by her students and friends (I'm lucky to be one of them) and is always ready for a good laugh or a joke.
