I write about art out of gratitude to painters for the joy and spiritual uplift they have given me. Painters interpret for us the visual glories of God and, in this way, bring us closer to Him. (Susan Vreeland)

Susan Vreeland - From the Books category:

I pored over art books and absorbed the placidness of Monet's garden, the sparkling color of the Impressionists, the strength and solidity of Michelangelo's figures showing the titanic power of humans at one with God, Jan Vermeer's serene Dutch women bathed in gorgeous honey-colored light... My conviction grew that art was stronger than death. (Susan Vreeland)

It was only after I began to write fiction that I found a way to connect with painting. (Susan Vreeland)

Susan Vreeland - From the Subject category:

Landscape is more than flat land covered by floodwater, the seeping of peat bogs, a river of liquid pewter viewed from a sentry tower. It's an influence on what a person values, what she is willing to sacrifice or argue for. (Susan Vreeland)

Susan Vreeland - From the Windows category:

The gift art gives us is that instead of seeing only our own world, we see into other times, which offers a window into other cultures and sensibilities. (Susan Vreeland)

Susan Vreeland - From the Work category:

Everybody works... That's what life is. Work and a little play and a lot of prayer. (Susan Vreeland)

Susan Vreeland - From the Writing category:

Writers have to be observant. Every nuance, every inflection in a voice, the quality of air, even - they all get mixed up in this soup of the story developing in our minds. (Susan Vreeland)
