Forging ahead… with “Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze”

Celebrating 10 years, here on WordPress.

“Tropical Daze” is the title I have given to my latest fun painting. After another set back I am forging ahead with my art. I won’t let rejection get me down, not this gal. This is a brand new painting on my easel, still drying. I certainly enjoyed using my palette knife while creating this piece. I used a palette almost exclusively. There is very little brush work. I did make use of some cheesecloth to add different texture, especially to the clouds. All in all great fun. It seems that these days if I am not thinking about spring I am thinking about some tropical paradise. Or so it would seem by my artistic endeavors. My new easel is no longer new looking. Tropical Daze is acrylic and gloss medium on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas, framed with a metal white frame. Asking $200

Finished “At Last”

At Last

Finished my first painting of 2021. “At Last” is our houseboat sitting pretty at Robert’s Bay on beautiful Shuswap Lake. I took the reference photo late last summer. It was an idyllic calm morning. Barely a ripple on the lakes surface. Perfect for reflections. I had fun re-creating those reflections. These days our girl is waiting for the sunny warm days to return and so are we. I am keeping this painting. It will hang in our land home to remind us of those sun and fun filled days of the past and to look forward to in the future. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. FYI If you would like a painting of your boat, I do commissions.

First WIP of 2021

WIP

My first painting of 2021 is in progress on my easel. It’s coming together ever so slowly. The photo reference is my own taken late last summer of our houseboat at beautiful Robert’s Bay on Shuswap Lake. It was an idyllic morning with the lake perfectly calm and flat. Reflections galore! Golden Artist Acrylics on an 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. When this painting is finally done it’s not going anywhere. It will hang on our living room wall.

REVISED “Dock Time”

REVISED “Dock Time”

Yet another revision and more tweaking and I think that I can call this one done. But you never know. “Dock Time” is the view we enjoy from the forward deck of our boat. I have taken some liberties with the scene and ignored the peripheral mess or mass of details like condos, other marinas, docks, pilings and more. Instead I have focused on this cluster of boats on the dock at Three Buoys Marina on the channel in Sicamous. The Bruhn Bridge and train bridge are in the distance. Enjoy. Cheers Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ canvas. Asking $250.

“Dock Time”

Dock Time

New! Still drying on my easel. “Dock Time”. I have painted and shared the view from our aft deck of Mara Lake. This time I have painted the scene from our forward deck. I am talking of the Sicamous channel. I used a lot of artistic freedom and chose to ignore all the peripheral condo buildings, marinas, docks, and pilings. Instead I focused on one dock and the boats there. It’s Three Buoys Marina looking toward Bruhn Bridge on hwy 1, a.k.a. Trans Canada Hwy, and the train bridge. The train bridge opens and closes to let boats go through to Shuswap Lake. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ canvas. Asking $250
