Susan Hargrove
"I am madly in love with color.  I paint in  many layers as, in the many layers of life. I use paint, wax, pencils, inks, chalks, charcoals, glazes, concrete, etc. Whatever it takes to create the effects I desire. I experiment and play with the interactions between colors and textures."
