Susan Sheets

 
Spring, Texas

Artist's Statement

Susan Sheets is a well known and respected Texas artist, whose works have focused on rugged landscapes, livestock and wild animals native to Texas. Through her strong sense of design and her intense conviction, her paintings bring you into her life. Indeed you feel as if you are in the presence of her horses, rocks, and trees, for there is an immediate intimacy with her paintings.

Susan spends her summers in Pipe Creek, Texas, nine miles east of Bandera, the “Cowboy Capital of the World”, where she trudges around hundreds of acres of Hill Country painting en plein air. Her intimate knowledge of landscape and subject translates to her beautiful art.

Susan holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Houston (1974) and a Master of Art Education from Sam Houston State University (1989). In 2003, Susan attended the Jentel Artist Residency in Sheridan Wyoming. Her works have been showcased in countless exhibitions, including exhibitions at Philmont, Cimarron, New Mexico, the Butler Longhorn Museum in League City, and the prestigious American Academy of Equine Art in Lexington, Kentucky. Susan has also been published in Ex Arte Equines III, International Equine Art Competition 2010.

"Over the Hills"

"Over the Hills"

oi on canvas

This wonderful animal  is from the Flying D cattle ranch in Magnolia ,Texas, owned by Dorie Damouth, a lady rancher whose pure-bred Longhorns are well known all over Texas. Dorie graciously allowed me to wander over her ranch to photograph and paint her Longhorns. We spent the entire day stomping through the mud, chasing after 300 head of cattle. We found this beautiful Longhorn with a wide set of horns and a beautiful face I had to paint. The rolling hills and tumbling clouds echo the shape of her back and tail end!

"Grace"

oil on canvas

This little Texas Quarter Horse was an eye catcher with beautiful proportions and color, and an expressive personality. Capturing him standing quietly in his stall, I was able to show the beautiful shape of his head and fine curve of his neck against the handsome conformation of his body. He was sweet, graceful, and charismatic.
