Painting Demo by Susan Frame at our recent Chapter Members Meeting

Our guest artist at our November Chapter Members Zoom meeting was Susan Frame. She is a painter, calligrapher, poet, author and teacher. She is a long time member of the Sumi-e Society and a winner of numerous painting and calligraphy awards. In 2019 we were treated with a workshop with Susan. Her workshop was so well received that we have asked for a return demonstration. Susan is known for her unique approach of combining traditional Sumi-e with the abstract. Her “playing with the ink” , water and brush result in ethereal paintings of landscapes and flowers. She uses “happy accidents” to her advantage for the inspiration for her paintings. Susan will develop a splash/poured painting using a prepared background of color and mineral pigments.
