Susanna Paine did several portraits in oil in Gloucester. They are bold and straightforward with large areas of color and solid, confident sitters. Determined to be self-sufficient, she struggled financially her whole life, but lived as a single woman artist, even supporting her parents their whole lives. She was groundbreaking as a woman and an artist.
