Whenever I visit I’m stunned. I mean, wouldn’t you be?
My neighbor Susan who lives across the street in a luscious purple house, has an outdoor terrace studio where she labors away on these glowing bistro tables. I strolled over on Saturday to check out her latest series of stories. Yes, I said stories.
The table above, with legs and lower stand yet to be painted, is one of her LA GIRLS. “The LA Girls cannot resist the charms of Bali.”
Each of these jewels is more fabulous than the next. The red number above: “The LA Girls return from India with many souvenirs.”
Lately Susan’s tabletop stories have grown more elaborate and intricate. Each metal canvas she renders is pulsating with life & color. This is made all the more remarkable by the fact that these tables and chairs are her first foray into the world of art-making. Yep. You heard me right. Her. First. Foray. Into. Artland.
Next up: “The LA Girls enjoy their budget vacation in Mexico.”
And finally the outdoor rooftop azotea where the magic happens.
Get your arse over to Susan’s Etsy storefront for more lovely patio stories. Then go see what Domino magazine had to say about her. You can thank me later.
