Ready represents that moment in our lives when we know that the growing pains we feel mean change is on the horizon. We may not know what is coming, but we know that we are about to enter a new phase of life. Ready is more than a painting…it’s a prayer. It’s what I offer up to the Divine when I’ve done everything in my power to prepare and now, here I am, vulnerable yet strong, ready to take that next step. Each chapter in our lives requires a rebirth of sorts; that’s why the woman in the painting is in a womb with her hands in prayer. Being ready means being ready to surrender.

Susan Korsnick is a Pennsylvania artist who celebrates the divine in nature and each of us through her paintings and mixed media pieces. While Susan has been an artist almost her entire life, it’s only in the last few years that she recognized the sacredness of the creative process. Every artist, poet and songwriter is a priest or priestess, connecting to the universal energy and channeling it into unique work that speaks to the soul. At times her art inspires, empowers or honors the beauty in each being on this magical, magnificent planet.
