"My drawing board vibrated as I brushed a wet stoke indicating a Bao Bao tree.  My brush trembled in my fingers, not only from the rhythms of the drums but the from the  passion and artistry I was witnessing.  I was given the gift and privilege  to experience the legend of the African drum and dance. A smile grew and my eyes swam with tears as the dancers leapt with feeling and joy.  Art, music and dance swelled and became one. Never in my career have I felt more love, respect and appreciation as a painter.  Never have I been more excited about painting." Suzanne
