Watch out for the blooper after the credits :-)

Yay Sue - I just saw this finally! Really great to see the process behind your work, and how it all comes to fruition. That was a cold day in Edinboro!

Beautiful pieces!!! I'm into plants as well...especially cacti and succulents.

I'm inspired with your work. Thank you for sharing!

Gorgeous work! The forms do have a believable botanical quality about them. I'm very inspired by plant forms as well, this was just the push I needed to get back outside and do some observing.

(How can any self respecting obsessive compulsive polymath really do nothing ?) That would be unconscionable.…See More
