Varo said most of what she paints “reflects a specific and special moment in time before it’s gone, and sometimes, it’s all about the beauty or the feeling from it.”  And her inspiration comes from the people she meets, her travels, and images that evoke creativity.

Recently, pieces from her series Patterns in Nature were featured at the Red Pipe Café, Forest Hills’ own beacon of entrepreneurship and local supporter of the arts. In Red Dapple, the figure’s mane and tail were depicted in red, to tie it together with other pieces in the series.

The Queens Light
2008
Art, in theory, is a product of the cognitive fluidity of the mind.  Individual interpretations are vast and art is sometime viewed as the re-creation of life.  When one views art-paintings in this sense he or she is involuntary, instinctively and instantly involved in communication, as thought patterns increase to embrace such expression.  For Susan Varo, owner of My Works of Art, LLC, painting has moved from the background and has taken place as part of her landscape
