GREAT MAKAWAO PAINT-OUT INVITATIONAL 2009
Painting a Volcano from Crater to Coast
June 28 - July 28, 2009
Susie was thrilled at the invitation to represent Oahu and join 21 other
dedicated plein air artists on Maui for this annual event hosted by
Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao. She painted non-stop for ten straight
days from sunup to sundown, all over Haleakala, Wailea and Kihei.
Exhilarating? YES! Inspiring? DEFINITELY! Exhausting? FOR SURE.
But given the chance, she would do it all over again tomorrow.
One of the days lasted 14 hours including a wet painting exhibition finale.
The Gala Show and Reception at Viewpoints Gallery
on July 3 showcased three of the best paintings from each artist.
The editors of Art and Culture on Maui magazine awarded Susie's painting
"Daily Greens" the best painting representing the island of Maui and
published a feature article about her artwork in the Jan-July 2010 issue.
