I have been a fan and follower of Susan’s work for a long time. This is a beautiful collection and beautiful book that captures Susan’s exquisite work, different styles of painting, fantastic eye, and her love of place. With text and images you are transported to life in Provence, getting a deep feel for its unique beauty, and the day to day rhythms of life there. I was struck by the vividness, accuracy and luminosity of the images — I didn’t know a book on a computer could capture and display painted images such incredible complexity and depth. It is like seeing the paintings in person. I highly recommend this book if you want to feel and fall in love with Provence.
Like a virtual vacation to France!
This is a phenomenal compilation of Susan’s work. She is a master of color and light, and it is a joy to flip through these pages and be transported to Provence. Absolutely gorgeous.
