- Really delighted that my ‘Berlin 1’ piece has been named for 1st prize in the ‘Our Changing World’ summer exhibition at the D31 Art Gallery. One third of a very personal response to spending time in this extraordinary city.I've written about my living sculpture ‘Green Fuse' in this blog piece (you will need to copy and paste the link) - https://susan-isaac.co.uk/2021/08/30/the-green-fuse-part-of-the-living-landscape-project. Part of the Living Landscape artists trail, curated by Angie Atmadjaja and @rebeccajblackwood - at @the_hopbarn from 1 Sept to 28 Nov.I've just sent out a newsletter with a summary of what I'm up to at the moment (there is a link on my website via the bio or copy and paste this: https://mailchi.mp/dc46d7136417/summer-round-up).Another glimpse of my living sculpture, 'Green Fuse', in progress at @the_hopbarn for their Living Landscape trail. This is the third part of what I have come to think of as a narrative triptych, highlighting the latent power of the natural world.The second piece I have in the @wirksworthfestival 'Online Art Prize' is my painting of "Newstead Abbey from across the Lake". This Gothic ruin was part of Lord Byron's home in Nottinghamshire. It retains its beautiful façade facing out over the ornamental lake - the dissolving tracery and hollow spaces letting in the autumnal colours of the woodland beyond.

In this composition, I was particularly playing with lemon yellows and enjoying the contrast of dark mauve field boundaries that zigzag through it. Squire’s Pond and a spring time ‘forget-me-not’ sky create another complimentary layer of colour interest. Southwell Minster is confined … Continue reading
I wanted to say a little more about the five paintings I have in the Open Studios Notts exhibition at Rufford. In this winter view of Southwell Minster the open gateway of the Bishops residence invites the passerby to stop and gaze … Continue reading

I’m going to be at the Southwell Minster Spring Fair on Saturday (5th March 2011) and have just started gathering things together for this. I will be displaying prints and art cards of my work alongside several new paintings, particularly … Continue reading
Some time ago, I started a picture of Southwell Minster from a garden off Westgate – spent the day reworking it. I really liked the luxuriant cascading foliage hanging down in front of the Minster facade.
Spent a short time finishing off the Minster painting (wanted to clarify some window and architectural details on the cathedral) before taking my Dad in for his cateract operation (right eye). The op went fine.
