About The Artist:
My name is Susie Barnett, I live in New Meadows, Idaho. I am retired so have more time to create my art. I paint in watercolor, primarily dog portraits and landscapes. Lately I have also started children's portraits as well. I also paint in oil but my passion is watercolor. I have been making art for as long as I can remember, it keeps me centered and makes me happy. My Dad's youngest sister was a school teacher and an artist. So he always encouraged me to create art and made sure that I had supplies.
When I am not painting, I spend a lot of time on the river, the Main Salmon as well as the Snake. Rafting during the summer and bass fishing, gardening, hiking and cooking.
I prefer to paint my dogs on Arches 140# cold press, 9" x 12" so the buyer has the option of framing the piece themselves. They fit in an 11" x 14" frame with mat.
To see my latest work, I do have a facebook website for my paintings. It is under Susie D. Barnett. I am a current member of SRAG as well as CIAA art groups.
