Surging Urge original oil by Susie Anderson 8″ x 10″

Original oil on cradled wood.

Susie Anderson is best known in the islands for her original plein air oil paintings.  She was a partner at  the wonderful Gallery at Ward Center for many years, and painted en plein air with her colleagues from that gallery, Mark Norseth and Roger Whitlock, among other notable local artists.

In Susie’s first career, she designed and printed graphics for attorneys to use in court.  Her plein air work is a world apart, with the joy and artistic challenges that come with painting outdoors in the endlessly changing light and weather we all enjoy.

Artist Statement

“I have a special passion for painting in oils outdoors directly from life as a plein air artist.

I also enjoy my time in the studio creating more complex and larger pieces.  Some have called me a “Pacific Colorist” for my expressive use of color and brushwork while interpreting a theme either in Hawaii (my home) or elsewhere, such as Park City (our second home) during frequent travel.

As a special challenge, I have also been exploring the world of non-objective art, which intrigues and interest me greatly, and which also inspires my representational work.

I call it painting from the “inside out” rather than the other way around, from “outside in.” Either way, it is my hope that my artwork reflects the enthusiasm, passion, joy and fun I experienced during the creative process!
