Susan Douglass Moody is the Galveston Art League’s featured artist for July. Moody’s brilliantly hued paintings on silk exhibit a soft-focus, impressionist effect. You’ll see her favorite subjects – flowers, trees, seascapes, and landscapes – through July 28th.
Moody was inspired by her great-grandmother as she watched her paint. She studied fine arts at Metro State College and the Art Institute of Denver. Her works are displayed at several galleries and in private homes in Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, and Maryland.
Although knowledgeable in many media, Moody now focuses on applying paints and dyes to silk. She is excited by the unknown and uncontrollable effects without resist, which allows the paints or dyes to move through and across the fabric. “It is as if they have a mind of their own,” Moody says. Her goal is to convey joy and peace with her work.
Moody is teaching a course in painting on silk at College of the Mainland at the Lifelong Learning Center, Delany Campus. She is a member of the National Society of Artists, Silk Painters International, and the nonprofit, all-volunteer Galveston Art League.
