Susan Seddon Boulet-Shaman-Artist-Goddess Paintings

Updated on June 17, 2014

Susan Seddon Boulet 1941-1997

Glorious Shaman art. I have been a fan of Susan's work for years.. so sad that she has passed. If you have never seen the work of Susan Seddon Boulet, oh man.. you have been missing out. I first came across her work at a used book store. Being an artist myself, I collect art books and also children's books because of the amazing illustrators. When I picked up the book that contained Ms. Boulet's work I felt like I had been gifted a wonderful treasure.. I was! I have loved her work and been blessed by her talent ever since.

Susan Seddon Boulet , a noted San Fransico Bay Area artist, died at her home in Oakland on April 28, 1997 after a long struggle with cancer. She was fifty-five.

What Human Being Has the Right to Dissect an Unfolded Soul?

What human being has the right to dissect an unfolded soul?

Take them apart

bit by pitiful bit

or perhaps pieces of happy forgotten

for the moment

tiny moments that qualify as being meant for fireworks?


I simply will not allow it.

How tall do you stand?

Who do you think you are...


Be your own flag

find your own way

never be like some who steals from my Lily's colors

her escapades

meeting her personal travel


feel your own footprints

yes this is EXACTLY

what I mean to say

just in case you wonder.

Do you know who you are

within your own myriad of obtainable artistic goals?

Does your talent surface


When you exhale

is it just not possible to think of anything else?

Art is all you are?

Is it true?

Or are you just a ...

wanna be


Stop it!

Are youbathing in the passion

and feeling colors inside your being?

Do you know?

You are not the one who writes the costs

pays the fines


you may not dissect Lily's unfolded soul.

Lily knew her way

that is how she arrived at this place.

Lily you see

without apologies


embraces her flames

even coaxes them closer

despite any danger or ultimate harm


Worship some of her dark days

display them


but silly soldier of aggression


you may not dissect this unfolded soul.

Circles are just that

no beginning

and of course no end

no becoming

and no tidy tides of smoke.
