“Reverence” is an original work of art by fantasy artist Susan VanSant. Beautiful Indian woman wearing traditional clothing, kneeling before a large tiger, preparing to give him a kiss on the forehead. They sit beneath the sal trees, symbolic of the Buddha. It is said that when the Buddha passed away, the sal trees flowered, out of season, and fell all around him.
I haven’t painted since Sunday and it makes me sad. I have some spare time this evening though and will be making the most of it! If all goes as planned, my newest painting will be up on eBay by the end of the week.

“Sea Treasure” painting on panel. Van Sant 2013
Hello everyone. Thank you for stopping by! My name is Susan Van Sant and I have been creating art (professionally at least) for the last 7 years. Before then I was dreaming of it. I have gone by many names and forms. I started out as “Some Unknown Entity” aka s.u.e. as I dabbled in the darkest reaches of my psyche to expel the demons of my past. From there I was “Canvas Menagerie,” painting portraits of peoples pets (dogs mainly.)
I love painting everything, but one common theme that keeps standing out in my artwork are faces of women. Not just any woman either. Me. or You. The queen in all of us. What is your totem? Are you a mermaid? Did you grow wings and fly away? Do you connect with bears? or dragons? What rules your heart? At least, for me, my moods change each day. And this is what I do. I paint portraits of myself/yourself in all our many moods and forms. It makes me happy. This world is my world and my world is now your world. Please stop by again. I welcome you to follow along with me on my journey. There is much more to come.
