Floor Paintings by Suzanne Dalton
 Celtic knot floor painting
 Celtic Knot painting 8 feet x 12 feet
Master bedroom floor with birdseye maple surround
I'm fascinated with the concept of the floor as a huge canvas.
The process of painting on that scale is exciting.
A painted carpet...decorative yes, but magically capturing the imagination
with tales of places in a distinct past.
