“The Dream Was”Posted: July 13, 2014
Original art by Susan Feniak acrylic on 16” x 20” box canvas.
Recently my Mother expressed an interest in having one of my paintings. She told me which wall she would like to hang it on and which paintings she preferred. We settled on “The Homestead”. But then I started to think about my Mother and the things she likes. She has often referred to a dream that was to be a part of my parents retirement years. That dream was to retire by the water somewhere and live in an “A” frame house or cabin. Sadly that dream has never come true. I have attempted to paint that dream. Not an easy task because this is my concept of what that dream may have been and not perhaps what my Mother has envisioned all these years. If nothing else it is bright and cheery and it includes some of my Mother’s favourite flowers, yellow daisies.
