"Lakota Ghost Dancer" Oil on Canvas

by Suzanne Painter
(Lodi, CA USA)

Mokelumne River  36 White Slough  24

I am a self-taught artist, learning portraiture from my mother at a young age. She taught me how to draw using charcoal and I'm still in favor of charcoal because of the ease of application, and the intensity of values.

Charcoal gives me depth that pencils lack.

But I truly love oil paints. I love the smell, the feel, and the beautiful look that oil paints produce. I love the way I can blend, and smear the paint to produce the desired atmosphere or emotion within the painting.

French Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red and Yellow, Brown Madder, Indian Red and Yellow, Siennas and Umbers, are all part of my palette. I sometimes mix 1 part to 3 parts Stand Oil to Linseed Oil for my painting medium.

When I am unable to paint, I feel unbalanced and I am at odds with the world until I can work the magic. I live in the central valley of California, and enjoy traveling throughout the western states for inspiration.
