"Produce on Parade"
About the Artist
Sue Buckwell is ecstatically retired from California’s public-school system where she spent thirty-five years teaching English and drama at the high school level. Once she was free of wrangling teenagers, she began to pursue her interest in knitting, creative writing and painting. But soon the house was full to capacity of afghans, several short stories had been published in literary magazines and the thrill had faded. Only painting remained. It is then she decided her dining room would be the perfect showplace for her renderings of fruits and vegetables. She has spent the last several years, painting with oils on canvas panels, to try and capture the shape, color and texture of nature’s bounty. However, her Produce Period is coming to an end as wall space is now scarce. She plans to tackle over-stuffed chairs next, as her newly renovated study could use some embellishment.
