NS Artist "Shout Out"

When I wrote my blog profile I asked myself the question, "what will I blog about?" I think this post falls under the "a little bit of everything" category. Recently I discovered the works of a local artist, Susan Sweet.  Susan has a studio in Maitland, NS, less than an hour's drive from where I live. She works mostly in acrylics, but I see from her blog that she also uses other mediums such as pastels. Many people commission Susan to paint their  four-legged friends. Scrolling through her blog you will find lots of horses and dog portraits. Tons of cows too...

Here's "Pink Hereford". Just look at those eyes!
But I think my favourite pieces are those depicting Cobequid Bay, part of the famous Bay of Fundy, home of the highest tides in the world! 
Check out Susan's blog if you would like to see more of her wonderful work. 


  1. Hello Beth, I follow your blog and this artwork is very nice. The "pink Hereford" reminds me of a photo I took...wish I could post it here. Love your blog!

  2. Oh, I would love to see your photo! I'm not much of a photographer, I just take pics with my iPad. A couple of times I have considered getting a good digital camera but then I talk myself out of it :)


Your comments are valued. I read every one of them. (In fact I often go back and reread them.) They really do make my day! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to write to me.
