Artists of Today's Search

In my efforts to find contemporary female painters to whom I should look for guidance and inspiration, I came across Susan Grossman on the DFN Gallery Website. She works with charcoal and pastel. Not the oil painter or a portraitist I was seeking, her work has a livliness and energy which winds out from her limited pallatte to engage me in her detailed city scapes, a helpful lesson nonetheless! Her work does not seem to be photorealist. Instead, she does what I am glad artists can do: expresses something intangible in the snap that a photo would do differently.

Thank you, DFN.
