Sea Holly

I call this plant Sea Holly. I know it has a Latin name and there are several species. It reminds me of thistles that I have painted on several occasions. I love all the pointy jagged bits. Fun to paint and that is the main part of my adventures in art. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith watercolor and ink on 9″ x 12″ Strathmore Vision paper.


Miss Dottie and Chad

Miss Dottie and Chad are here to wish everybody a hopping good Easter weekend. And so am I. Cheers Susan Feniak. susanfeniakart.com


An experiment

This one was an experiment. I took a cue from an older Watercolor Artist magazine. Playing with looser brush strokes and different colors. The article was about painting a cat and techniques for painting fur. I couldn’t leave well enough alone and added a mouse. I named my version “Cat and Mouse Game”. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper.


“Who’s There?”

Done, finished, complete. And I am happy with the end result. Anyone that knows me would also know I wouldn’t be happy until I finished this one. Cheers Susan.


Dingy’s Wait

Dingy’s Wait. Recently I sold two paintings at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. Time had to be made to come up with some fresh art to show there. Dingy’s Wait was the result of that precious time. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors on Fabriano paper. 8″×10″. Varnished and framed waiting for a new home.


Color Glorious Color

FUN! Capital letters. I splurged and spoiled myself with the purchase of my first 6 tubes of Daniel Smith watercolours.  WOW! More capital letters. These brightly colored row boats  are my first painting using those first 6 tubes. Artist Susan Feniak.  Daniel Smith paint on Strathmore paper. 9″×12″
