"Congratulations on the about-to-be publication of your book. What a stunning and monumental work! I most admired the pictures of places around Sedona that I recognize, the cloudscapes (with the road going into the distance), and the trees ! The tree paintings are my favorites of all."— Marcia Burtt (nationally known acrylic plein air painter from Santa Barbara)
Susan's pastel triptych of three 8x10s, "The Wide View," took second place in the Main Street Paintout at the 2012 Sedona Plein Air Festival, among a field of top award-winning plein air artists from around the country:

"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
