Cards from the Seaside

I have been working on a new series of greeting cards. Actually having fun with simple seaside designs. There are 7 here. Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolors on Strathmore card stock.

A Christmas Giraffe?

So far there have been singing birdies, dancing penguins, polar bears, funny reindeer portraits but a Christmas giraffe? You bet! Gretchen is all ready for Christmas.  Artist Susan Feniak. Original art. Water colours on Strathmore card stock. 

Sand and Seashells #WorldWatercolorMonth 

July 3rd. I love seashells and have a nice collection from wherever we go. My favourite would have to be the large conch from Belize. Since I have all ready done a painting of it I give you this assortment. Rather quickly done, original art by Susan Feniak.  Holbein Artists water colors on Strathmore Paper. 6″×6″

“Bees” #worldwatercolorgroup 

“Bees” original art by Susan Feniak.  The prompt today March 12th was Bees.  I went with the far cuter non stinging variety, Bumblebees.  Fuzzy and often seemingly drunken in appearance.  They are usually over loaded by the pollen they have so busily been collecting.  A sure sign of spring! Buzz…..  Hopefully there is progress being made in the salvation of the world’s honey bee population.

“Hairy Beasty” #WorldWatercolorGroup

20161024_150345“Hairy Beasty” #WorldWatercolorGroup  original art by Susan Feniak.  Holbein Artists Water Colour on Strathmore 140lb Cold Press 11″ x 15″ paper.  I also used my Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and white GellyRoll pen.  Pretty sure I want to get myself some more colors of GellyRoll.  A beige would look better then white in this particular painting.   I am inspired by this highlander.  Most likely because I love all things Scottish.  Hope you have a grand week.  Cheers!  PEACE

“Seashells” #WorldWatercolorGroup

#WorldWatercolorMonth July 29 “Dragonfly”

IMG_20160727_142027#WorldWatercolorMonth July 29 “Dragonfly”  We are expecting company this weekend so I had to keep this one quick and easy.  I cut out a 4″ x 6″ piece of paper from my Strathmore Watercolor 140lb cold press paper pad and made this into a frame-able postcard.

#WorldWatercolorMonth July 17 “Red Bike”

IMG_20160717_122527#WorldWatercolorMonth July 17 “Red Bike”  A flash back to a favored bike.  As a child I was treated to a brand new bike of my very own, once.  It was a beauty.  I loved that bike.  A very quick sketch while taking a break from work this day.  Hope you are having a lovely Sunday.  PEACE

#WorldWaterColorMonth “Blue Eyes”

IMG_20160713_102303#WorldWatercolorMonth  July 13  “Blue Eyes”  Another first for me today.  A cat!  I should say due to yet more time restraints this sweetie was created rather quickly.  I think I would like to paint more cats and dogs.  I can see they would be a lot fun, especially their facial expressions.  This one can be for my sister, the lover of kitty’s.

#WorldWatercolorMonth “Day Lily”

IMG_20160712_123302#WorldWatercolorMonth  July 12  “Day Lily”  Today I went out to the garden and saw that my Day Lily’s were all in bloom.  I decided they were a worthy subject for my painting of the day.  Definitely challenging enough!!  Hope you are having a beautiful day. Peace
