Continue your Father’s Day shopping at the Larchmont Sidewalk Sale Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5, when, among other goodies, you’ll encounter the landscapes of Susan Stillman, whose paintings are “meant to evoke a shared memory of places we have visited or simply see in our everyday lives.” They range in subject from English to Westchester County scenes and in size from 8 by 10 inches to 64 by 46 inches. Many are views of trees.
Stillman is well-known for her representations of homes and properties in Westchester and surrounding areas through her business, Home Portraits, which has been profiled in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, among others.

Beginning her career as an illustrator in the early 1980s, she was published in hundreds of magazines, newspapers, posters and books. She was chosen to illustrate a special centennial edition of James Joyce’s “Ulysses” for Book of the Month Club and illustrated “The Invisible City: A New York Sketchbook” for author Pete Hamill. Her landscape paintings been exhibited widely in New York and the surrounding areas.
