Sue Dolamore's recent works are a departure from the plein air paintings that she is known for. Recently opening a studio in the River Arts District, Sue has been able to experiment with new works. The pieces that she shares at the Asheville Gallery of Art were inspired by recent trips to the coast and the small boats that can be found in cozy harbors and marinas. Working first with india ink and a bamboo pen, Sue enjoys the rough and less controllable lines created with these basic tools. Working with watercolor to bring luminous color to the work, Sue finishes her studies. She may then produce larger works with acrylic on larger canvases to create more dramatic versions of the boat studies. Sue has also been creating small abstract works in a similar way, sometimes with fine line ink pens and may then develop larger pieces inspired by these abstract studies.

Sue Dolamore lives with her husband, youngest daughter and two cats in Marshall, North Carolina in a round house that sits on a ridge above a river gorge. She is thankful every day for her good life, enriched by loving relationships with family and many friends, for the opportunity to serve her community as the coordinator of the plein air artists in the greater Asheville area, for all the beauty that surrounds her and most of all for her connection with the Infinite.
