When is good not good enough? Susan Rand of Salisbury thinks she has found that answer—at least in her painting. Ms. Rand, who opens a new solo show this weekend at the Norfolk Library, has a new body of work that she feels takes her works “a step farther.”

“I feel like I’ve looked deeper into myself,” she said. “When I am painting [this series] things come out that I didn’t know were there.”

It is an opinion shared by her artistic cohorts. She tells of sending a card to a former mentor. The card bore one of her new images. “He called and asked, “Susan, when did you start to paint like that?”’ she reported with satisfaction.
