|When she lived in England, Susan O'Brien McLean painted cricket
matches, English country gardens, and picnics by quiet streasms. Now that
she lives in Osterville on Cape Cod, her subjects are beaches, Cape
gardens, and landscapes.
"But no matter which side of the Atlantic she's worked on, her vision is touched by nostalgia for a gracious lifestyle. That's rare in the late 20th century," says Cindy Nickerson of the Cape Cod Times.
Mrs. McLean has exhibited in London regularly at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolors, the Pastel Society, the Royal Portrait Society, and at numerous galleries in the London area.
She is represented by several galleries in New England. She is a member of the CDape Cod Art Association and the Copley Society in Boston.
Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Copley Society, Duxbury Art Association, Cape Cod Art Association, and the Falmouth Artists Guild. She has received several awards at these exhibitions during the last year, since moving to the Cape.
