Tingling Elbows

Susan and Alice's Aura at NSU Art Museum of Ft. Lauderdale, FL.




































THIS IS THE FIRST TIME  I exhibited my work in a museum. I was invited by NSU Art Museum of Ft. Lauderdale's director  Bonnie Clearwater,. She loved and chose Alice's Aura  even though her assistant had selected another painting for the show. Ms. Clearwater labeled me a cross between Frida Kahlo and Alice Neel. At the time of my exhibit, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were showing in the museum's main gallery. You know, your elbows tingle when you are rubbing them with the masters. I hope some of that greatness wore off on me! You can buy my work or prints of it here - http://www.susanmclaughlinart.com/. It's still cheaper than Kalho's or Neal's, at least until I get a few more museum exhibits under my belt.

Here's a better look at Alice's Aura . She was recently shown in the Treat Gallery, NYC.
