Featured Art: Echo #3


Susan Crave Rosen, Chesapeake Bay Branch
“Echo #3,” acrylic and collage on paper, 23×27 inches


“I have been painting for over 25 years, beginning when my husband and I retired to Virginia. Starting with watercolor, as many artists do, I wanted a more opaque, sturdy medium and moved to acrylic about 15 years ago. I have added collage of my own painted papers to layered acrylic, often embellished with line.” —Susan Crave Rosen

      Thank you. The image is a little skewed as it is a rectangle, not a square!

    Wonderful piece: the geometric forms; the black, white, red, sometimes bright, sometimes muted; the letters (I’m a word woman/poet). And I also see piano keys. Intriguing.

      Thanks Diane! The image is a little skewed since the painting is a rectangle, not a square!
