Shadow Dancer


Horizontal on the amazing adjustable easel:

Plus an Inkjet image printed on an Apollo transparency looks like this:

Plus some Elmer's Caulk, a palette knife and some luck....

Ends up looking like this:

and the gratuitous close-up: 

And again, my wise art friends, how do I get this puppy sold??

PS. Venus Astonished and Shadow Dancer
both have a reoccurring theme. 
It's way deep
and I don't want to get into it now. 
You can probably tell that it has to do with heartbreak, 
I mean Venus is so astonished with this life, she bails!! 
She goes back to where she came from! 
She got hurt, yes, she could survive that,
but what really made her head back to sea was Disappointment!
Constant Disappointment!! 
Hoping, wanting and not getting. 
Being let down, sometimes by people that are not capable of giving her what she needs
so part of the blame is hers! 
Insanity is hoping for a different outcome over and over when the process is exactly the same! 
And Shadow Dancer,
she is there for one reason and one reason only.
To Excite.
Good grief, how sad is that. 
Her body is the only 
important thing about her. 
She is judged by her beauty and weight.
She has no personality,
soul or heart
in the shadows.
She is expected only 
To Excite.
I went off didn't I?
and I didn't really want to get into it.
I think I need a minute. 


  1. Fascinating art work.

    Hugs, amy

  2. Going off is what gets us to the good stuff as artists, Lady. And this is the good stuff.
    How to sell it ?
    I am really bad at that part. I think I need a patron who will cover that part for me... ;)
    If you find an easy avenue, let me know !
    Good luck getting your good stuff out there.
    Hugs !

  3. Love it Susan, you are so talented!!!
