Bird Paintings

Thompson sees birds as integral aspects of sky and forest. Manifestations of trees dreaming to fly. The nesting materials and places, gifts from the forests as thanks to the birds for fulfilling the dream to fly and spread their seeds. Everything is interconnected. Susan loves to embed the general shape of birds into her paintings in such a way that they become visible in the painting only after looking at it for a long time.
