Womwn who Art - Student Spotlight

This beautiful piece of restful art -
painted by artist Susan Bernhardt -
temps one to grab a great book, a cool glass of wine
and settle in for a relaxing afternoon in the summer sun...

Susan began the painting by adding luscious cool colors
to a yellow ocher background.

She layered gorgeous shades of blue, purple, yellow
and green onto the chairs and surrounding space.

Then created depth with vibrant shadows and highlights.

After a "wall worthy" critique from her art group peers,
Susan signs her name -

And invites viewers to kick back, grab a glass and unwind.
