I am for all art that takes its form from the lines of life itself, that twists and extends and accumulates and spits and drips, and is heavy and coarse and blunt and sweet…
— Claus Oldenburg, 'Ode to Possibilities'

In desperate need of a cool lake to jump into today. Anyone have a lake I could borrow? And that's coming from someone kind of scared of those fierce fresh water lake sharks 🦈 ('Jaws' kids will understand)
*
Will try to think myself cool today and dive into some water paintings. Got the oil paints out for this one 💙

Y'all had so much to say about the floral painting in my stories yesterday! Wow. Opinions 😉
*
I appreciate the feedback but it doesn't change how I feel.
*
To explain - I'm ruthless with my work and no matter what it looks like, or who/how many like it, if it doesn't *feel* right and if I can't see myself in the brushstrokes, it's not something I'm going to sign my name to and put out into the world. It's my work and my name and I'm just not 'ok' with just 'ok' work.
*
Case in point - I love this sweet teal floral because of it's simple composition, interesting colours and playful, abstract brushstrokes. It *feels* like me and it looks like something only I could have imagined. Bingo. Botanically perfect? Nope. Susannah Bee perfect? Yup 🙂
*
It's one of a number of florals available as a print (and cards!) - and one that I'll be forever proud to sign my name to, no matter what anyone else thinks. 💙

Have you seen the blog section in my shop? It's under the " + More " heading and for those interested in a bit more about me and my work, worth a look!
*
One post covers the often-asked question about why I occasionally use red as an underpainting color. There's a post about naming a painting and also a great post about overcoming a creative block.
*
I'll be adding more posts over the summer - I quite enjoy writing about my work if I can think of anything more interesting to say than "blobs on canvas, hope look good".

Good morning from Studio Bee!
*
Poppy and I are about to disappear into paint for a bit (my idea of a summer holiday is just different paint, and even more of it ) but first, taking a moment to savor the gratitude filling my heart today. Every day I walk into the studio, get to pick up a brush, explore my ideas through colour on canvas and connect with a sense of purpose is a GREAT day, and one to be incredibly grateful for. So grateful . Thank you for being a part of this journey 🙏
*
And now ... It's time to disappear and make a beautiful mess 😉

"Aurora".
*
First light and oh, the sanctity of a quiet summer morning. Silent but for the waking sounds of nature on a warm breeze - that beautiful stillness. With all its soft colours and gently swirling clouds, this painting captures a profound sense of peace and offers up all the promise of a brand new day.
*
This was the very first painting of my Mid-summer Skies collection to sell but am happy to say that archival prints in a number of different sizes are available! Shop link to see 'Aurora' and the whole collection in my bio above ☝️
*
This is a hopeful and loving sky to wake up to each and every day, and with a print.... You can! 🧡

This morning I took a deep breath, opened my heart and shared my lastest collection of colorful summer skies with the world.
*
The response has been absolutely wonderful and truly, deeply appreciated. All but one of the originals sold within minutes - wow! Thank you!!
*
This was a small collection of large paintings (there's something SO freeing about big canvases!) but for those who missed out or who are looking for smaller options, please think about our beautiful art prints - all of these lovely summer skies are now available as archival prints in a number of different sizes.
*
Shown here is 'Ever & Ever' , a new, super pretty version of my favourite soft sky. 💗
*
Heading into the studio today with a very, very grateful heart. Thank you for making the collection launch a great success!

It's a quiet Saturday here and I wanted to start my long weekend with a beautiful warm Good morning to 'Highview'.
*
This painting was inspired by the memory of my daily walk to the studio when I lived in England. Cutting off the main road I found (errr...'created' 😉) the scenic route which took me through a farmer's field, over a fence, through the trees and o'er the hills . Best. Commute. Ever.
*
While the original has sold, I'm pleased to offer gorgeous archival prints, all hand-signed, in a number of different sizes. Shop link in bio ☝️
*
If you're a city mouse dreaming of being a country mouse - this is the one for you!

Sharing an all-time favourite little print today and hoping you're soaking up every last moment of June sunshine.

Lovely quick dip this morning! ...

Some paintings are straight trips from start to finish ("badaboom badabing, done!").
*
Some are endless, painful can't-find-my-way, curse-fueled, this-is-a-complete-disaster treks that end up going over the cliff.
*
Most are meandering explorations, curious rambles with hundreds of creative decisions en route.
*
Sometimes it's just one pivotal decision that charts the course to success.... Funnily enough, it was deciding to add a few flecks of snow that made me fall in love with this early spring sky.
*
Well that, and totally falling in love with it's name 😄❄️

Who's hiking today? Who's outdoors under a big breezy sky? Who's watching clouds drift by and listening to the sounds of summer? Taking a moment to pause and enjoy the stillness? I hope it's you! 🙂

I seem to be going through a "everything everywhere goes wrong all at once" phase. Ugh. So grateful to have the studio to retreat to, although it's hard to set life aside and paint on days like this. Hoping some colour and quiet and time with my brushes will work their magic. 💓
