Tote bags, a birthday card and my oh my what morning!

A new shipment of tote bags arrived the other day. I am happy with them. I don’t normally make prints of my art but I think these tote bags will help promote my art. Heavy-duty canvas and washable. If you are interested follow the instructions below. The Heron was a birthday card for a friend. And that view? That is mine this morning. From the aft deck of our houseboat looking at beautiful Mara Lake. Happy Sunday everyone. Cheers Susan

Happy Mothers Day! This is the card I made for my 94 year old Mum. I hope that all the Mum’s out there have a beautiful day. Cheers Susan


Sold work and a thank you…

SOLD Waves Brilliant Dance
Thank you

This past weekend I sold a painting. “Waves Brilliant Dance”, found a new home. I am always grateful to have someone like my art enough to hang it in their home. I appreciate the fact that art is a personal thing. Thank you to the new owners.

Now, I need to announce that I have new art promotional cards. And I need to thank Hooked Decor and What Knots in Sicamous for displaying my cards again this year. Check out the store. It is full of lovely decor items and inspiration for interior decorating. You can’t miss a real houseboat that is an actual store sitting beside the Trans Canada Highway in Sicamous. A favorite spot for browsing and getting decor ideas for me. Truly an inspirational place to visit.

Working on cards…

Juno

I have been working on cards lately. There are several family birthdays and events coming up. I still like sending cards and enjoy making them. “Juno” is based on a painting I loved in the Artists Magazine March/April 2021 issue. The original was done by artist Johne Richardson. I couldn’t resist Juno’s expression and needed to recreate it. The other two cards are self explanatory. All three cards are QoR watercolor, ink and or gouache. Artist Susan Feniak. My cards sell for $10

Two for…

Peek-a-boo
Name or title?

I have two fresh watercolor and ink paintings for you today. Now that the weather has warmed up a wee bit we are spending more time on our boat. There is no internet on our boat or dock. You may not see as much of my art or get many comments or likes from me for the next while. It can’t be helped. I will do what I can when I can. In the meantime here is Zelda Zebra who has been busy since we last saw her. The pond is my imagination at play, an idyllic scene. Both pieces are watercolor, ink and gouache on 11″ x 14″ Fabriano paper. Artist Susan Feniak

“Show Stopper”

Show Stopper

“Show Stopper”. My latest acrylic painting is of a photo I took while in Mexico a year or so ago. Before COVID, when we were still allowed to travel. This beautiful pink hibiscus greeted us on the path that led to our condo. I couldn’t resist taking a photo. And I have been meaning to do a painting of it since.

“Tropical Daze” Framed and ready…

“Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze” is framed and ready to hang in someone’s home. I have included a couple of photos of my process for you. Palette knife painting is different from my usual brush work. I do enjoy playing with a palette knife. It’s very different and makes for a lot of texture. I also used cheesecloth and when I used a brush it was loosely, almost carefree. The scene reminds me of a tropical getaway. Something I didn’t get to enjoy this winter. Maybe next year? In the meantime dreaming and remaining hopeful will suffice. Cheers Susan

Forging ahead… with “Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze”

Celebrating 10 years, here on WordPress.

“Tropical Daze” is the title I have given to my latest fun painting. After another set back I am forging ahead with my art. I won’t let rejection get me down, not this gal. This is a brand new painting on my easel, still drying. I certainly enjoyed using my palette knife while creating this piece. I used a palette almost exclusively. There is very little brush work. I did make use of some cheesecloth to add different texture, especially to the clouds. All in all great fun. It seems that these days if I am not thinking about spring I am thinking about some tropical paradise. Or so it would seem by my artistic endeavors. My new easel is no longer new looking. Tropical Daze is acrylic and gloss medium on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas, framed with a metal white frame. Asking $200

Frames for two…

“Spring’s Bounty”
“Tulip Glow”

“Spring’s Bounty” and “Tulip Glow” both got frames this weekend. I am fortunate to have a great friend who is happy to build frames for my art. I think she did a fantastic job. I think both paintings needed the rustic barn board look. Being a watercolor Spring’s Bounty is under anti glare glass. Don’t ask my husband how much that cost. Oops. Always get a price before ordering. Just saying. Both pieces are original and available for sale. You can see them and pricing in previous posts.

Artist Susan Feniak. If you want to contact me about my art please email sfeniakart@gmail.com I do not respond to scam or spam emails. I have gotten too many of those nasty emails. I am saddened by people who have nothing better to with their time than try to scam or cheat people out of their money and work.


New Watercolor “Spring’s Bounty”

“Spring’s Bounty”

New art! “Spring’s Bounty” A watercolor this time. This is big for me, especially when it comes to working with watercolors. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to create. I didn’t draw anything, I just started to paint. My first of a few mistakes was that I chose the wrong background color. With perseverance and an arsenal of supplies I ended up with this painting as the result. There is everything on there from gouache to Daniel Smith, QoR, Derwent watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, salt, you name it. At one point I even had my oil pastels out. There came the classic moment, am I done or not? Maybe? I had a blast, especially splattering and playing with a hake brush. Hope it pleases your eye.
