Susan Graeber. Her paintings are fabulous, she is full of color and light (both in person and in her art). She can take an everyday scene and make it so spectacular. Susan paints often, I love seeing what she posts. One stunning painting after another!
This is a painterly piece of the Rockland Harbor in Maine. I can picture it exactly and the clouds/sky/water are no exaggeration. Susan paints with pretty much every medium, she’s so prolific it’s fun to see all the different versions of paintings. Each one is a WOW painting. Susan’s website says “A Painter of Color and Light” – absolutely!!
Be sure to check out more of Susan’s work, and follow her on social media where she shares her paintings. If you ever get the chance to meet her, do so! You’ll leave with a smile… Read more about Susan, (in addition to her bio below), HERE.

My life long interest in painting began in early childhood attending the Bryn Mawr School, where creativity was encouraged. I attended Hobart William Smith Colleges for one year but decided to commit to an art college rather than a liberal arts program and transferred to the Boston Museum School for two years. While there, my family moved to Brussels, Belgium for three years. During my summer visits, I had the benefit of traveling throughout Europe and seeing many museum collections first hand. I also benefited from a number of European painting programs. I then transferred to the Maryland Institute and graduated in 1980. I had a few jobs related to the arts including a gallery position, settled down and married an art dealer who is a works on paper dealer, and had two children.
I always painted plein air when our children were growing up, especially enjoying Maine and the Maryland countryside. I now am a full-time painter and maintain a studio in The Mill Centre, Baltimore but mostly prefer to paint on location. I love to paint on Monhegan Island, Mount Desert Island, New Mexico and Maryland. I am influenced by the artists Arthur Wesley Dow, Fairfield Porter, Wayne Thiebaud, Neil Welliver, Edouard Vulliard and Henri Matisse. I am most attracted to places in nature where light is creating abstract shapes, and color is creating a mood. Capturing fleeting light is always a challenge, and a thrill when occasionally it works in a painting!When painting, or even seeing that spot that pulled my attention, I am drawn to unexpected movements of light and beauty.
