“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.

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.

Reaching? Or Baker’s Dozen?

Reaching or Baker’s Dozen? I am not sure of the name yet. But if you need a touch of spring here it is. It’s been awhile since I did a painting of flowers. Now I remember why it’s been so long. They drive me crazy. But as always I did enjoy the creative process. It’s bright and cheerful. Something we can all use. Spring will come it always does. Cheers Susan

Day 2 World Watercolor Month

The prompt for day two of WorldWatercolorMonth “Sunny Skies” made me think of sunflowers pointing themselves toward the sun. Don’t ask me why. It just did. To get your prompts and more information about WorldWatercolorMonth2019 click on or go to worldwatercolormonth. com


Daisy Fresh

SOLD “Daisy Fresh”. I was inspired by an article in June 2019 Watercolor Artist magazine “A Meditation in Light”. This is my acrylic spin on a watercolor of daisies in that article. Replication of a watercolor painting with acrylic is easier said then done. Or so it seemed to me. I am pleased with my result. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 16″ × 20″ box canvas. Painted on all sides. No frame needed. $175


Lupines

“Lupines” Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 12″ box canvas. Lupins grow wild in this neck of the woods bringing lots of colour to roadsides and meadows. I am still having fun using my palette knife. Doesn’t need a frame $100.


Spreading some brightness

SOLD It has been a couple weeks of dull winter weather in my neck of the woods. In the need of some brightness if not sunshine it was time to paint some colorful happy flowers. Hope they bring you smiles and some brightness too. Cheers Susan


Two Days Left

There are only two days left to purchase one of my paintings at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. The gallery will be closing for the season on September 15th. Cheers Susan Feniak.


The Turquoise Boat

I am pretty sure this is the smallest acrylic painting I have ever done. At 8 “× 8” it seems miniscule to me. But still I enjoyed painting. My inspiration was a photo found in Victoria magazine September 2018 issue. An idyllic setting or so it seems to me. Cheers Susan
