I discovered sad news tonight that will touch many of you. Flickr's Suzee Que passed away suddenly April 13th. She has inspired many of us with her photostream full of gorgeous images "free to use" in our own artwork. I am so thankful that I had the wits to thank her in person and let her know how much I appreciated the treasures she left. This, believe me, is quite a miracle because I am not usually thoughtful enough to do such things, though I wish I was. I sent her a group of prints once using her images as a small gesture to try and repay her for her immense generosity. The piece below, which is still the only original piece I've kept of my own work, uses two of her images as the centerpiece and remains my all time favorite. Without her images, I actually might not have found myself where I've landed, because it was with this "ahah" piece that I knew the direction I wanted to take my work. I can say with all sincerity, that Suzee Que touched my life and my artistic journey and I will forever be grateful.
