Patio Patterns by Sue Stephan Foster

Sue Stephan Foster

Sue Stephan Foster has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. As a sophomore in high school, she won her first art award and has continued to receive awards throughout her career. In college she majored in art education and has taught in many adult education programs.

She is a past member and board member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and the East Suburban Artists League. Currently she is a signature member of the PA Watercolor Society and the Wayne County Arts Alliance.

Upon moving to Hawley from Pittsburgh in 2013, she purchased Missing Pieces in Honesdale and turned it into a gallery and shop. Last year she sold the building to WCAA because her vision was to see it continue as a gallery.

Patio Patterns

“The painting Patio Patterns was inspired by a photo I took of someone’s back yard while I was on a walk. The contrast between the different white shapes against the dark background is what caught my eye. Painting white objects is a fun challenge in watercolor, and the repetition and variety of white shapes made for a good composition. It remains one of my favorite paintings.”
