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
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
My 2021 Christmas card assembly line is in full swing. Here are some of my designs for this Christmas. All are original watercolors on 4″ x 6″ blank inside cards. Hand painted and created by me, Susan Feniak. Having fun and using some of my imagination. Hope you enjoy. Cheers Susan
Just finished another 10″ x 10″ painting. Small by my standard. These are the progress photos and the final painting. I decided to leave the background white. Maybe it’s the start of a new trend? The title is “Yellow Maze”. If you were interested in purchasing this painting you are too late as it SOLD almost immediately. Thank you to the purchaser. Selling art has been a tuff slog this summer as venues have been few and far between. I am fortunate to have sold anything. As always I am grateful to have someone like my art enough to hang in their home and personal space. Cheers Susan

#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 31 prompt “Jewel”. Finale! Here are some of the gems I created this month along with one final card. I did it! Despite all that has been going on around here I managed to create 31 hand painted, one of a kind, greeting cards in 31 days. I hope you have enjoyed this month long celebration of Watercolor as much as I. Thank you to Charlie O’Shields at doodlewash.com for his idea to have a month long celebration of watercolor. This is the 6th year I have participated. It is celebrated by artists around the world. Truly filling the world with beautiful art. Cheers Susan Feniak

#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 15 prompt “Effervescent”. This is beyond bubbly and effervescent. Maybe the boats name is Effervescent?! Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″.
#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 11 prompt is “Abrupt”. Sometimes the smallest thing can bring the biggest thing to an abrupt halt. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″.
#WorldWatercolorMonth Days 8 and 9. “Wing” and Gnarled”. The photos speak for themselves. I am combining the two into one because I was a tad busy yesterday. The lack of internet and time does affect one’s ability to keep up with this month long celebration of watercolor art. Artist Susan Feniak.
