Art by Susanne Pintura of and about Lynn

 This art is by a friend of mine, Susanne Pintura, who I was fortunate enough to meet and befriend in
Sketchbook Skool. Suzanne drew these wonderful portraits of me. The top one is her way of seeing me, my spirit, I believe! I think it is the exuberance I embrace in life. Although you will not ever probably find me riding such a "bike" I do feel the wind in my hair and that I am riding through life on a wonderful wind full journey.


Suzanne did the portrait of me when we were all doing  portraits of each other. I love her style and how she uses shades of colors that highlight my face and eyes and hat and hair. I feel that this painting too exudes ME in all aspects of myself.



These wonderful treasures reached me in this awesome map envelope that Susanne made herself!
I also loved the inside packing she used to protect the paintings. A Bran Cereal box written in French! Now THAT is worth saving too!



Thank YOU Susanne! I could not have been more happy to receive this wonderful gift you sent me.
I love the quote you painted by Picasso too. It is a credo I have lived by most of my adult life. As I continue to imagine and create a wonderful life for myself !

Happy Paint Party Friday! I appreciate your stops by my blog and the comments you leave mean the world to me. I will pass on your reactions to Susanne's art to her for you if you talk about it here.
Thank you.
