"I finally got to see your new work at the gallery in Bend. The paintings are stunning, Sue. The way you handle the paint abstractly, and at the same time create imagery just blows me away. Congratulations!" Grace Bishko, 2010
"Let me begin by congratulating you on such beautiful work. You seem well trained and, I suspect, rather successful artist. I find your work pleasing, well composed, carefully observed and quite sensitive. Although I think you will do well following the path you are already on, I will pass along my observations..."
