Accepted into the OPA Western Regional Exhibition of Traditional Oils

Mountainsong Galleries, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA


Born in 1948, Sue Smith is a California native now living in Oregon. With a background that includes a formal art education and brief study in Italy, she continues to explore ideas in an effort to better understand the creative process. She paints in oil, from life and in the studio. Her work finds voice through the traditions that emphasize the abstract quality of paint, with an underlying conceptual idea that seeks to communicate in both a sensitive and honest way. "I look for a singular moment," she says, "that is – to me – alive and real."

Influenced by such stylistic opposites as Sorolla and David A Leffel, she blends the ideas of traditional Impressionists with a pure love of beautiful paint on a canvas surface, expanding on the concepts taught by Sherrie McGraw, Rose Frantzen, Jacqueline Kamin, Greg Krutz, and others. Her work is in private collections in the United States and Canada.
