SUSAN CRAVE ROSEN
I began painting in 1995 after moving to Virginia from Long Island. I have always loved the process……the physical application of the paint, whatever the medium, surface or tool I am using. Music was my creative outlet until I began painting. I have found that like studying voice, learning to paint is a slow and sometimes tedious process, that is a gift in itself.
It is wonderful to love something and try to put its essence down on paper or canvas. Watching the paint move on its own or with my prodding….the process of making a picture….that’s the reward. If I like the finished painting, it’s a bonus!
