“Easter Island is on almost everyone’s bucket list, why wait any longer to see it?” asks Susan Sternau, author and illustrator of the new book, Easter Island Sketchbook: An Artist’s Journey to the Mysterious Land of Giant Stone Statues. The book features over 65 watercolor and ink paintings that bring to life a place that few people have the opportunity to visit. Discover the personalities hidden in the faces of the moai, the multi-ton stone statues that line the coast or rest half-buried in an inland quarry. View dramatic landscapes, volcanic craters, rocky shorelines, and sacred sites as Susan shares sketches from the book and photos from her trip to this fascinating South Pacific island. Susan's other books include Art Nouveau: Spirit of the Belle Epoque and Art Deco: Flights of Artistic Fancy. Her art is available locally at Studio 333. More on Susan Sternau at www.susansternau.com
