SUE'S , THE OTHER ONE.
These are a few I'm about to show you, starting with some early ones, working down to the latest ones.
Please remember these are pictures of paintings and I'm afraid do get spoilt a little by reflections from the flash.
Above "Bluebell Wood" an early framed picture around 20" x 12".
Above, "Anglers Dawn"the last landscape she painted. This one's around the same time and size.
Above "The Family" one of her first forays into both Elephants and larger paintings, 30" x 20".
Above, "Time for a drink" her first attempt at a single Elephant, again in the larger sizes.
Above, her latest (large) Elephant picture "Hurry for a drink" was finished just about 3 years ago.
Above, A framed picture "I'm watching you" was the first Tiger picture she painted.
Above, "Not Happy" was completed in 2003-4 and is a real favourite of mine. (large unframed).
Above, This one "My Baby" is from around 1999-2000 and was the first large mother, cub one she did.
Above, "The Whole Family"is again one of my favourites, this one really suffers from light reflection which is a real pity.
Below, "We're Relaxed" was again one of the last pictures completed in around 2006-7. Sue has lots more that I havn't shown you and at least three more " under construction" at the moment.
Sue has also done a couple of dolphin pictures but as soon as they are finished someone wants them, hence no photo's.
Please leave comments either good or bad.
Native WisdomA salesman is driving toward home in Northern Arizona when he sees a Navajo man hitchhiking. Because the trip had been long and quiet, he stops the car and the Navajo man climbs in.
During their small talk, the Navajo man glances surreptitiously at a brown bag on the front seat between them.
"If you're wondering what's in the bag," offers the salesman, "it's a bottle of wine. I got it for my wife."
The Navajo man is silent for awhile, nods several times and says, "Good trade good trade".
