NEW feature on Susan Heidi’s pinup blog… see her works in progress

Posted by Susan Heidi - May 18th, 2007

I’m excited to begin posting views of my pinup art works in-progress. I hope to put together more work-in-progress slideshows and tutorials in the near future - I never seem to find the time since painting takes priority! Well, instead, I’ve decided to post “a view of Susan’s easel” which will be a frequently updated view of what I’m working on. Hope you enjoy!

Celebrate Armed Forces Day with Susan Heidi Pin-Up Art

Posted by Susan Heidi - May 18th, 2007

In celebration of Armed Forces Day (May 19, 2007), I thought I’d post some news about one of my favorite pinup models, Heidi Van Horne. She is not only a beautiful and talented model and actress, but Heidi stands firm in her beliefs and strives to be a role model for young women. You can learn more about Heidi in her just released interview on Heidi was the inspiration for my painting “Salute the Troops” (based on an image by photographer Shannon Brooke). Salute the Troops by Susan HeidiThis painting is one of my personal favorites and I haven’t been able to part with it yet. I display it in my front parlor - bringing a smile to the face of everyone who sees it. For more military inspired pinups, check out my painting titled “Semper Fi“.

new pinup sketches added to Susan’s Loft

Posted by Susan Heidi - May 14th, 2007

I finally got around to adding some sketches to the Loft section of my website this past weekend. I’ve been posting some sketches here and on myspace, but to keep everything organized I added them to my loft. There are some images from a painting I’m currently working on titled “Casting Call”. Hope you like!
