y daughter asked me to paint more poppies and I am happy to add these soporific flowers into my paintings. I originally started out with a bunny again but our orange tabby Arthur was posing so sweetly that I changed the painting to include him. I continue to make Henri Rousseau like paintings and will have several in the Art Naif Festival in Katowice Poland this summer.
This is a 5″ by 7″ Ink and Watercolor painting on Aqua Board and includes some of my imaginary plants and creatures. To purchase click on the buy now button or contact me at susanmedyn(at)cox.net

This leopard was just woken from his nap and is looking at you. The bushes are hiding snakes and the lizard is climbing the tree.
This is my 3rd in a month long project of 30 paintings in 30 days started by Leslie Saeta. I continue to make paintings influenced by the style of Henri Rousseau. I have 3 large ones and a small one inked in that I am hoping to paint during over the month of January plus several ideas percolating in my head.
This painting is 5 by 7 and is Ink and Watercolor on Aqua Board that I varnish and place in a shadow box. It is for sale for $250.

I spent Sunday working with Karen Raus who has an amazing studio. Karen takes amazing photographs and works in encaustics to transform them into unique artworks. I had the pleasure of joining her in working in making 2 encaustics. I stuck with my watercolor medium as the base but added Alfred Hitchcock on the left for one of his quick appearances. Who can forget his signature theme song. Once it is in your head it is going to stay there for awhile.
I loved adding the collage pieces that I made from torn paper which I painted and then soaked in gold based wax. The dark spots are walnut ink. Did I mention Karen has great art supplies. A real treasure trove for an artist.
This is a 6″ by 6″ encaustic work on a 1″ deep cradle board. Looks great hanging on the wall.
