http://www.susannmccolloughart.media susannmccolloughart@aol.com I paint from the excitement of the blank canvas. I paint with freedom of inner­feelings, movement, lighting, connection of space, combi­ nation of colors, playing with negative space until it all speaks to me. My ideas come from so many things that just fill my head all the time. It comes from our travels, the faces I see, the natural works of nature and creations of mankind, the architecture, the people we meet, sometimes and mostly the feeling I get just waiting to start a new canvas. Between sketching, reading and studying about art; I find that there are not enough hours in the day. Before I paint a new canvas, many times I will envision painting it as I fall asleep and I work it out in my head until I know the direction I will take the next morning. Sometimes I do not wait till the next morning. I find it all a labor of love, fun and exciting with every brush stroke I take... I look at things that are realistic in nature and change them into abstract thinking. Most times I visualize realism in the abstract.
