The Sky

The skies dictate the emotions of nature and often that of man.  At dusk they dazzle us with technicolour sunsets reminding us of their artistic prowess, whereas at night they shine and twinkle holding within their folds of darkness the possibility of other worlds.  The skies can make even the most powerful of men succumb to it’s greatness.

In this series, using blowtorches, heat guns and irons to manipulate the wax across the surfaces of my boards I have endeavoured to capture the many moods and magnificence of the skies under which we inhabit.

Are you interested in buying a painting from this series? Check out my availability by Gallery representation and also my online store. If you would like to commission an art piece, contact me, Susan Wallis for my details. 


The texture of Susan Wallis’ works gives them a sense of serenity and excitement at the same time. Canadian landscapes are treated in a resolutely contemporary way.
