DON & SUSAN

Artists' Statement

Don and Susan first met in Menards around 2017, Susan, new to oil painting and the art world, was looking for painting substrate and Don was working in the building materials department. They shared their hobbies of painting and photography, and traded contact information. Don even suggested a website that he used to display and sell his work. Soon after, Susan began using some of Don's beautiful landscapes as reference photos for her paintings.

In 2023 at the Bloom Artist Showcase they re-connected and started making plans to show their work together. And here they are today, juxtaposing painting and photography over a specific moment in time. They are a photographer who takes photographs that look like paintings and a photorealistic painter, painting works that look like photographs!

Thank you for sharing your time at this exhibit today.

We hope you find inspiration to create collaboratively.
