Susan Rogers Fine Art - Original art work created for you!
About the Artist

Susan is a professional artist who usually turns to soft pastels to create her landscape paintings. These sticks of pure pigment have been around since the 16 century. Edgar Degas was the most prolific user of pastel, and its champion. Mary Cassatt introduced the Impressionists and pastel to her friends in the United States.  

Pastel must never be confused with colored chalk. Chalk is a limestone substance impregnated with dyes where pastels are pure pigment and are very permanent when framed properly. 

Susan enjoys working outdoors, where nature is the instructor. Choosing to portray how she feels about the landscape, not just recording the scene. She is inspired by the disappearing landscape that is being claimed by urban sprawl. She creates paintings that help to preserve these quiet scenes, so that they will survive for hundreds of years. She hopes that her artwork will assist in slowing down the fast pace of our everyday lives.            

 "When painting “en plein air” or in my studio it is important to work with efficiency. Simplifying what I see is a necessity. My goal is to capture the essence of the light and the magic that drew me to the scene in the first place.”  Thank you for your interest.
