HAPPY GIRLS – Susan Lapp

Happy Girls

“Susan, sometimes I regret impulse purchases.  Not this time! I truly love this work! I unwrapped it in my sister’s presence. She gasped as Study of a Happy Girl appeared from the wrapper “Oh I l-o-v-e it”.
“SHE’S HERE!  SHE’S HERE!  And even more beautiful in person.” Alexine  


HAPPY GIRLS are meant to send out joy, inspiration, humour, elegance and lots of love. I hope they put a smile on your face and become part of the essence of your home. I want to paint things I have never seen before. I want to shape, wrap and form balance, infuse motion with emotion until all become a painted story.


A thought would not go away during my time in the studio. Make some happy for the world. Creating a Happy Girl has multiple stages.  I paint an abstract of nature on Mylar.  Then I spend much time in looking mode, seeing shapes in my strokes I find exciting. Sometimes I see forms in the abstract, a dress or top, a black dot that becomes an eye of a bird.  I cut movement.  From many pieces I ”build” a girl. As I see the figure, colours and flair developing, I imagine a story.


This helps me finish the artwork and I write a sweet poem or thought for each girl. You are purchasing a finished artwork that is created with the highest quality materials from start to finish. I use Golden Acrylic paint. The GOLDEN brand of acrylics is known for quality and archival integrity.
