love sweet love - 8 x 10 giclee print of original collage, ink + gouache - Susan Black

Don't think about making art, just get it done.
Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad,
whether they love or hate it.
While they are deciding
make even more art.

Andy Warhol

What I love about what I've been doing lately is I'm never sure what the end result will be - I start with a small thumbnail sketch & an idea of a colour palette but stuff happens along the way ... sometime really good things, sometimes regretful - but always helping hone the craft of it all.

I'm really loving this new bright pink, oranges + yellow colour palette.


  1. Love the citrus lifesaver palette. I think I need a popsicle.

  2. yeah !! I really Love it too !

  3. Hmmmm Starburst art. Makes you lips smack. Very happy.

  4. are the pitt pens what you use to draw the white? I use a cheap roller white for that but who knows how viable that is over time. mostly i still paint white with a teeny brush. nice colors on a sweet sentiment.

  5. Chickory I use the cheap gel roller pens for the white - I just like to write & draw with the Pitt pens + they have brush pens :-)

  6. Love it! And the Warhol quote - excellent for music as well...

  7. we NEED popsicles here in HOT HOT HOT, did I say HOT Colorado. Tail wags are slow due to high heat!

  8. Just popped over from Slow Lane Life. I love this artwork and the colours are so summery!

  9. I had the same reaction: June day, sweet but with a little tang, fitting the text.
