An example of fine art by Susan Paavola

Growing up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan gave me the opportunity to live in and appreciate nature and beauty.  I always found it to be calming and restorative.  Now, living near parks and the James River gives me the opportunity to try to capture those feelings in my paintings.
As a child and throughout my life I was constantly drawing and doodling.  A career change in 2009 enabled me to start taking drawing and painting classes and I have never looked back.
When working in oils I feel that I can capture on canvas the vivid colors and light that is ever changing in landscape.  Whether it is representational, abstract or figurative art, I seek to capture the essence of the movement and life and to share that feeling with others.
