Recently the original painting Lifting Fog SOLD. A good thing. Unfortunately while preparing the painting for shipping it got damaged. What to do? Paint another one of course. No choice really but give it a try. You may not realize this but no two paintings turn out the same. Artists are constantly evolving. Learning new techniques, changing styles. The original painting was done two years ago.
But I wanted to try. I had a paying client to satisfy. I believe that I managed to get it close but not exact. My purchaser has decided to buy the new version. I am thankful for her understanding. I hope she likes it as much as the original.
Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper.
Tide Abandoned. It was time to do a watercolor and ink. I have been making a lot of greeting cards but no watercolor painting of substance. Hope you like my sun bleached wreck seemingly abandoned by the tide. This painting is available at Three Buoys Marina on Riverside Ave in Sicamous. Asking $125.

Waves Brilliant Dance. My latest painting is still drying on my easel. These days the ocean and waves seem to be my muse. That comes as no surprise to me. To achieve the texture I used several different palette knives and a credit card. The entire painting was done without a brush. Admittedly this technique is hard on my acrylic paint supply. Even using Goldens soft gel gloss to extend my paint it sucked up lots. Did I have fun? No need to ask. Did I make a big mess with paint smeared everywhere, even on my phone? You bet. A joyful mess. I am pleased with the end result.
Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Asking $250. Not framed. Colours used Titanium white, Cerulean Blue Chromium, Azurite Hue, Colbalt Teal, Green Gold, Yellow Ochre and Hansa Yellow Medium.
SOLD. Thank you Becky at Three Buoys and to the new owners of Wave!. Finished and simply named Wave! This one was a blast to create. A true escape! Admittedly it started as “just” a study for a bigger painting I am planning. Start small go big!
Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 12″ x 16″ gallery canvas. My new “Princeton velvetouch” brushes were a joy to work with. This painting will get varnished and will be on display and for sale at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. $85.00
Ocean Jewel. Something new and different. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden acrylics on a 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. No frame needed. Hope you like this bit of bling. To achieve the texture on the starfish I used a thick layer of Goldens gel gloss.
It’s official my first painting of 2020 has a name. High And Dry. Between my Instagram, Facebook and WP site there was a tied vote. I ended up asking my husband which name he preferred Skiff’s at Low Tide or High and Dry. Thank you to all that took the time to cast their vote.
