New old and sold…

New card
Old and going to a new home
Sold

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.

Happy Monday! Cheers


“Hyde to Mara”

Hyde to Mara

My latest painting “Hyde to Mara”, is DONE! This painting is based on a photo I took last summer. Lunch at the Hyde Mountain golf course includes this idyllic view of Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Playing golf is not for me but I will gladly enjoy lunch at the golf course just to partake of the views from many vantage points. I have been wanting to capture this particular view on canvas for some time. I hope I have done it some justice.

Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on a 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Asking $375 plus shipping. Painted on all sides so doesn’t need a frame. This is original art. I do not make prints. If you are interested please email sfeniakart@gmail.com


New art in progress…

“Hyde to Mara”. Time for a change from flowers and paint a local scene. Based on a photo I took last summer after the wild fire smoke cleared. The view from Hyde Mountain golf course looking out over Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Remember that this is a work in progress. This is an inspiring view for anyone to enjoy.

Work or play? A new painting gets a start….

Work or play? My newest in progress painting is on the easel. I am having fun playing with the light on the water and in the sky. As a rule, after the ground or base coat, I start from the furthest point away, usually the sky, and work my way forward. Right or wrong? I don’t know, it’s just how I’ve always done it. My imagination is working overtime on this one. This is also one of the biggest paintings I have done.

Back to the easel…

Work in progress

The Christmas tree is down and my easel is back up. You guessed it. My easel usually sits where the Christmas tree was. I don’t have a studio or art room. I paint in a corner of our living room. It’s nice to be back to creating. This painting has been sitting around for far too long and is still a work in progress. I hope to finish it soon. Cheers Susan Feniak

Happy 2022!!

As we start a new year I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that supported me in my artistic endeavors during 2021. A special thank you to my peers. Becoming an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists was the highlight of my year.

I am looking forward to 2022, optimistically and positively. Since I am now officially retired I will now have more time for art, blogging and social media. Look out!

Happy New Year! My very best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and creative 2022. Cheers Susan Feniak


Merry Christmas

May your Christmas be merry and bright. Stay safe and stay well. Peace, Susan Feniak


December is a busy time

December is a busy time for everyone. This year I made almost 4 dozen Christmas cards. About 1/2 of them sold the rest were sent out to family and friends. Today we had our first major snow event of the season. That meant we needed to shovel snow off our houseboat. And of course what is December without a visit with the jolly old elf himself. And yes I have been good all year. No wish list involved. Just my hope that everyone stays safe and healthy this Christmas. Cheers Susan Feniak


First WIP of 2021

WIP

My first painting of 2021 is in progress on my easel. It’s coming together ever so slowly. The photo reference is my own taken late last summer of our houseboat at beautiful Robert’s Bay on Shuswap Lake. It was an idyllic morning with the lake perfectly calm and flat. Reflections galore! Golden Artist Acrylics on an 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. When this painting is finally done it’s not going anywhere. It will hang on our living room wall.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative 2021. Let’s be positive.

This is a “selfie” of me. I don’t like getting my photo taken nor do I do selphies well. They are something I will rarely share.

The other photo is my “Top Nine” posts on Instagram in 2020. Not my choices but Instagram’s. Interesting and somewhat surprising. I was happy to see my personal favorite “Shine On” a.k.a. Trudy Tortuga made the list. Amazed my watercolors and ink were as popular as they are. Go figure.

Moving on to new projects and I am hopeful the year ahead will be better. Surely being positive will see us through. Cheers Susan
