Day 135: Susan Meyer

I have always wanted to paint.

For as long as I can remember, creating images and capturing moments has been my passion. As a child, it didn’t matter if I used crayons or pencils; I looked at things differently even then. When my teacher asked me to paint a tree, I painted three different ones. For me, art was a pure expression of what I was beginning to notice in my life.

This is my joy. Painting is my way of working through thoughts and issues and sometimes releasing what troubles me. Yet, what you see on the canvas, these are the moments I most want to remember and celebrate.

In 1990 I moved to Tucson on a warm September day. I immediately fell in love with the warmth of the area and with the people. The colors of the sunset were so vivid we would applaud the more striking ones. I came from a desert, but this desert was so green and colorful and alive. There were many day trips to learn more of the area. I was born in El Paso, TX, but this was the West as I remembered it from my childhood. The Folklorico dresses were so captivating in their movements and color.

I teach watercolor in my home. My goal as a teacher is to help you reach your vision of what you want. I show you how to make your artwork stronger in composition and color value. I will show you examples with my computer on how you can make changes without painting on your artwork.

My goal in Desert Artisans’ Gallery is to have fun and paint things you like.
