“Dad’s Favourite”

Dad’s Favourite

“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.

Cards and a work in progress….

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.

Cheers from the houseboat, artist Susan Feniak.


Happy Mothers Day

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

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

Slow going work in progress… Where is time going?

I started this painting ages ago, perhaps a month has gone by. The Christmas card assembly line has taken over my art space and my paying job has sucked up my time. I haven’t managed to get back to this painting to finish it. Between one thing and another there just hasn’t been enough hours in my days. Since I am looking forward to retiring soon I will have more time. Maybe then this painting will finally get my attention. Looking forward to it. Cheers Susan Feniak.


Anfractuous

“Anfractuous”

“Anfractuous”. Truly a labor of love, this painting is complete and drying on my easel. If you look up the meaning of the word anfractuous, you will understand why I gave this painting that name. I hope you like it. Cheers Susan Feniak.

The artist busily creating.

Another start…

I had so much fun creating my last painting that I decided to do another floral piece. It helps that I have a beautiful bunch of sunflowers sitting on our table to inspire me. After this, I think that I will be finished with florals for awhile.  It will be time for something else. I hope you enjoy my progress reports….

“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.
