Description In a flowered dell the Lady Venus stood,Amazed with sorrow. Down the morning oneFar golden horn in the gold of trees and sunRang out; and held; and died. She thought the woodGrew quieter. Wing, and leaf, and pool of lightForgot to dance. Dumb lay the unfalling stream;Life one eternal instant rose in dreamClear out of time, poised on a golden height.,
Till a swift terror broke the abrupt hour.The gold waves purled amidst the green above her;And a bird sang. With one sharp-taken breath,By sunlit branches and unshaken flower,The immortal limbs flashed to the human lover,And the immortal eyes to look on death.
Susi Galloway, Coeur D'Alene Idaho Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement My paintings reflect a fascination for the outdoors, breathtaking scenery, unique viewpoints, illusions and dreamscapes. I love strong contrasts, bold and vibrant colors. My favored subjects are opulent, vibrant scenery, weather, portraits and visionary/surreal imagery. I capture moments that seem like poetry, and strive to inspire joy for life, creativity, imagination and Illusion.
I work with traditional brush and paint, and I also paint with digital brush. I experiment with the old and the new, and enjoy exploring new creative media and frontiers.
I also enjoy bringing stories to life with vibrant and beautiful images, and specialize in children's, book, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and horror illustrations.
