In this stressful life I hope that through my landscapes, the viewer has an opportunity to sense the peace and tranquility that walking into a pasture or hiking to an overlook can give. Living in Washington County NY, I am continually awed by the beauty of our Northeast states. From the Adirondacks to the north and the Green Mountains to our east, both states present outstanding landscape opportunities. 

"Early Snow"

I currently produce work both plein air and in studio work employing both alma prima and indirect painting methods. As a contemporary artist I enjoy the works of so many nineteenth century Impressionist artist such as Camille Corot and Pissaro. Their use of color to convey atmosphere and their color harmonies are what drove me to produce landscapes. 
The bold brush work of John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt provided me with an understanding for the use of color and allows me to use my training as a draftsman and technical illustrator.

 Susan Bayard Whiting was born Glens Falls NY and has lived in Washington County NY for much of her life.  She and her husband Robert Whiting currently live in Argyle NY where they share a beautiful timber frame studio/gallery. 

"Center of Attention"

Her earliest influences were Mary Cassatt for her stunning use of warm colors and exceptional bright whites and Winslow Homer for his expert draftsmanship and bold brushwork.  The Impressionist of the nineteenth century, Corot, Pissaro and Millet provided her with a solid understanding of the use of color and atmosphere. 
Having studied Technical Illustration at Adirondack Community College where she honed her drafting skills but did not pursue her love of art beyond the typical high school curriculum.  
Her artistic talent was expanded through independent study
 and forty plus years of practice.

"Fringe"

Susan’s work has been included in numerous local exhibits; Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Counsels Member Exhibits, North Country Arts Member Exhibits and Chaffee Art Center to name a few.  Her work is currently collected by art patrons from New York State to California.




She is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists and an exhibiting member of American Artists Professional League.  As co-founder of Artisan Trails in Washington County she works to promote the work of Artisans and Artists throughout the year planning and organizing a yearly county wide event.
