birdWhat is your name? Susan Fae Haglund
Why do you paint birds?
Birds are fascinating to watch and to learn from, they have similar habits as humans. Birds are hardworking, sociable creatures that rely on their flock and their individual instincts for survival. Much like us, only not us, their body structures allow them to do things we can’t. Wings and feathers stimulate my imagination.
Flutter, Feather, Flurry and Fun are motivating words in my vocabulary and encourage a bird image for me.
What is your favourite kind of bird?
The American Robin has the most beautiful song and a regular visitor to my yard. Yet, it’s a blue bird in the shape of a Robin that you’ll find in my paintings (artist licence); they flash a spot of joy where ever they are.
Who are your favourite artists?
The old masters such as; Georges Braque, Van Gogh, Monet, Di Vinci. Living Artists: Bev Tosh, my parents; Myrna & Wayne Haglund, Shantal Slieght, many more.
