Susan of India


Welcome to My India


Susan Flint Rajkumar I have lived in India for over a decade, and have called many other parts of this world my home. I mingle with people of many different religions, skin colors, educational backgrounds, and life experiences. And I am happy to call them my friends. At age fifty, I decided to change the course of my life by taking an art class. Many things have changed, and how pleasing!

Skill Development Continues

Posted by Susan Rena Rajkumar on Sunday, October 19, 2014, In : Art 


Interestingly, I'm on a special path, being guided to learn art—or more specifically—painting. As some of you who read my last blog, I had mentioned how an art friend had suggested that I learn water color painting. Ok. I accepted this with some resistance, but soon gave to the “flow of the universe” and went with it. I started watching painting videos of experienced watercolor teachers. Many.

Paintings 23, 24, and 25

Raj and I went to a friend’s house for lunch recently. We had bumped into each other at the grocery store and she said to me, “I went to your blog to see your paintings.” When I heard this, I nearly fell over. How kind of her to take notice of something that is dear to me; that she actually mention it speaks volumes. Feedback of the positive kind when one is learning something sometimes takes its time to show up. And then the encouragement is the real jewel. “You really ought to kee...
