Susan Eckles' Oil Painting.

I get inspiration from the local landscape for my paintings and my response is an emotional connection with the natural world. I have no desire to make a faithful recording of what I see. I leave that to the camera. My paintings are a personal expression about how I feel and respond to the countryside. I enjoy the physicality of working in oils as I use fingers and rags as well as paintbrushes to move the paint around.
