"Tree Spirit - title unknown"
Medium Date Framed Size Image Size
Oil Pastel/Ink 1974 13-1/8"H x 13-1/8"W 6-3/8" Diameter
From Michael Babcock, “In the early 1970s probably more of Susan’s male images sported beards than not. Lovely, flowing trees such as these were also common and rather than figures flowing into animals as in her later shamanic work, often figures flowed directly into the surrounding landscapes. Small birds flying in the background were another feature she used quite often. She loved flowing lines; like many pieces there is a feeling of movement here. This piece calls to mind what Anaïs Nin wrote about Susan’s art: "We always wanted to see the spirit of a tree... Susan did. She brings us every detail of leaf and finger intertwined, eyes and roots not visible to human eyes."

On careful viewing, an owl appears within the interwoven lines of trees and beard.

The original work has been re-framed with an antiqued gilt custom wood frame, archival triple-matted with a linen top mat. Acid-free materials throughout, and re-glazed with Museum, conservation, Tru-Vue, UV protective glass. Signed by Susan Seddon-Boulet bottom-center. Dated 74.
