Unforgettable

Leaving textured marks and imprints. . .
Unforgettable, 2006 Suzanne Coley
I created this series of small abstract paintings with 22 karat gold leaf in 2006 after visiting Maryland State Parks and Forests.

I recently took 20 of these small abstract paintings from my storage box, and will be placing a few for sale.

Looking at this series 8 years later,  I realize the experimental textures and marks on these works can be seen on the covers of my artist's books and boxes.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
