“Dad’s Favourite”, my latest painting is drying on my easel. A little known fact is that I grew hollyhocks in my garden for years just for my Dad. He told me once that they were his favourite flower and that they reminded him of his grandmother and her garden. So here is my tribute to Dad’s favourite flower, the hollyhock. I no longer have a garden to plant the seeds that grow into these lovely old fashioned garden standards, but, I can certainly paint them.
There are several photos of my start to my finished painting. Enjoy.

It’s been a while since I have been able to post something here. We live most of the warmer months on our houseboat and there is a total lack of internet service. My data suffers! I hope everyone understands.
Here are photos of two cards I recently completed. Both are watercolors and ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″.
The final three photos are the process and progress of my latest work in progress. I wonder if you can guess what flowers I am tackling this time? I will be sure to share the final edition. It’s acrylic on a 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas.
My sincerest wishes for a Happy Mothers Day! A special hug to my Mum. I made my Mum’s card bright and cheerful this year so that she could see it. And “Fidelma” flamingo helped Mr Stork recently. A very special Happy 1st Mothers Day to the new Mom.
Both of these cards are watercolor and ink on Strathmore watercolor cards 4″ x 6″. They are hand painted, original and one of a kind, by me Susan Feniak
For lack of a better title I am calling this painting “Looking Up”. I go for a walk everyday and often find myself looking up. This scene is inspired by the nature trails in and around Sicamous British Columbia. Our summer home turf. I highly recommend the trails. Whatever you are doing today take the time to go for a walk and remember to stop and look up. It’s truly fascinating.
The first 3 photos are of my process and the last photo is the final painting. The end result for Looking Up!

Meet “Miss Paw-Lah”. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″. It’s card making time. Those of you that know me should know I love animals, in particular dogs. I enjoy using my imagination to create one of a kind paintings of dogs. Paw-Lah is straight from my head to hand to brush and paper. Well pencil first then brush and paper. I hope Paw-Lah brings a smile to your day.

“Flat Bottom Gals” is my latest acrylic painting on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas. A string of boats waiting for hire. Colorful, bright and cheerful. Hard to resist. I couldn’t resist the name I gave to this painting either. It’s fun too. We can all use a bit of happy these days. Right?
This painting started as a completely different idea and morphed into this. I am glad this is how it goes. One never knows where the idea or paint brushes will go…nor where ones imagination will take them.
If you are interested in this painting please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org I am asking $250 cdn plus shipping . It’s original and I do not make copies or prints of my art.
The Daisies are a new card. Something I haven’t been making lately. The Heron or “Misty Morning”, will be heading to a new home soon. I gave it away to very good friends as a wedding gift and now it will be going to a baby’s nursery. Just waiting for when that bundle of joy arrives. The small boat painting is sold. Ergo, new old and sold….
The artist for all is me, Susan Feniak. Sometimes I don’t have time for blogging or all the social media. At the moment I am without internet. News from me will be even more sporadic. For that I will apologize.
“Best Buddies”. My latest acrylic on canvas painting. I hadn’t painted a larger doggie painting until now. My usual animal creations are normally done with watercolors. Milo and Molly are from my imagination. Yes, I gave them names, but I will let you decide who is who. I hope you like them.

The sky fascinates me. I could watch it and the ocean forever. This time my imagination has tried to capture a storm building over the ocean with the sun setting behind the thunderheads. This provides a plethora of color and light effects. Not to mention the layers of cloud and reflections. This one was fun to paint. I let my imagination go and that is always enjoyable.
Although this is my imagination and original work, I was influenced to create this scene by an article in the March 2022 PleinAir Magazine. The article is about artist Lisa Grossman titled Adventures In Skywatching.
