Susan's Only Self-Portrait

130. Susan at Carmel-by-the-sea

Oil, Canvas Art Paper Professionally Mounted & Framed 16×10

Susan loved her remote control for her camera. This was a self-portrait of her loving the Pacific beach in California.

Comes with a framed 8″X10″ copy of the original photograph that Susan painted it from.

$300

102. PICTURED ROCKS LOVERS LEAP

Oil on Lombardy Poplar Tree Bark

10×41

This painting is a one-of-a-kind in the world, and is priced accordingly. When you see them in person you understand how amazing, and special they are!

One of the first places I took Susan was to Pictured Rocks. She probably took over a thousand pictures while we were on the boat cruise. This was one of them.

Susan hand-picked the tree bark from Middle Island beach where the Lombardy Poplars are now all gone. It is painted on the smooth inside of the bark. It has mounting wire installed on the back.

SOLD!!

119. Black Rocks Leap of Faith

Oil, Canvas Board

5×6

This is a delicately small painting of an immense Marquette favorite. It is a painting only a petite Filipina like Susan Reyes Schumacher could have painted!
