ZSUZSANNA DONNELL & ROCHELLE SELTZER
A serendipitous moment in time
Two artists stumbled upon the discovery that they have a common sensibility that is expressed thorough two compatible art forms. ZsuZsanna was painting and Rochelle was writing poetry. They found that their common titles corresponded with each other's work -- not just once, but twice. Thus a collaboration was born and the work will be on view, complete with poetry readings and some BIG art.

Had the opportunity to be Curator and also Artist
in this show.
Really Big Art, I'm talking FEET.
6' x 7' "OH MY"
I'm pleased to announce that I just finished my largest painting ever.
Comments received are really funny and interesting. Here's one that I commented on.
Holy cow!!! 6' 7' !!! HUGE! How did you transport that? by open truck bed?
Actually that's the big question....my husband and I developed a wood contraption for the top of his SUV, kinda like this # symbol top and bottom, with painting in between, with a few more wood pieces and screwed them together so not to fly out...and I covered it with a set of king size sheets....it was genius..
Commissions are a wonderful and scary proposition. First you question if you can do it, then you wonder if the client will like what you've come up with for them and along the way there is so many other things that go through your mind. Having painted quite a few commisssions... I've got some experience with all those emotions.
Really the best part as you can image is the experience that comes with the dynamics of it all.
It's invaluable, plus it moves you forward in your process as an artist, with more confidence of what you can & can't achieve.
And the really great part of doing a commission is that the clients loves it!
Kinda like sisters or opposites black and white. One inspired the other, many more were painted during this streak of marathon work. This one was delivered in Boston...I never meet the client as it was a gift, but I had the pleasure of hanging it and knowing that it would be a fabulous surprise.
