Suzy Aalund, Painter/Watercolorist, 1933-2016

Suzy Aalund, aka:  Susan "Suzy" Beatrice (Quick) Aalund, 83, of New London, CT, died earlier this year.  I never knew her, but I did know her artistic work.  The internet is filled with examples of her work and after reading her obituary online, I decided something more needed to be said.  Some notable details of her outstanding art career are added here, so I have borrowed parts of obituary and added my own commentary.  
She was born on Long Island in Amityville, N.Y.  She studied extensively through independent studies and went on to achieve notable national recognition for her work specializing in paintings of a nautical nature, however at times she also painted the back roads of America as presented in the blog. The painting below shows a tight architectural illustration and areas where she has scrapped the paper to get the effects of winter tree branches and grasses.
