"Your work is stunning, lively, observant, and marvelously colorful.I love the pallette from which you work." _ Judith P., Illinois
"Still River Light" (9x12 pastel)
"I often take time to enjoy the Susan Pitcairn painting I purchased. The lovely flowing undulations of stream, light and stream-side vegetation capture much of what I love best about rivers. A river has always flowed through my life, and I often take great comfort in its beauty as I now experience the grief of losing husband, father and mother, all within the past two years. And so this painting is quite special to me."_ Linda B., Missouri
"Of Heaven and Earth," 30 x 36 oil (available as giclee on canvas)"We appreciate having your beautiful picture more than I can express in words.It really touches me every time I walk into my house."_ Shelley A., Arizona
