Small art and a new venue…

Recently I have been trying to rebuild my small painting inventory. The first two paintings are 10″ x 10″ acrylic on canvas. Can you tell that I was having fun with my palette knives?

I am pleased to announce that my “one of a kind”, hand painted greeting cards are now available for sale at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium on Alexander Street downtown Salmon Arm BC. I would like to thank the owner, Rachele for the opportunity and for supporting local artists. There are several photos of my cards above. I dropped off 15 to see how they sell. Fingers crossed. I am excited and looking forward to coming up with some more fun ideas for my cards.

My cards are all 4″ x 6″, hand painted original pieces of art. Artist Susan Feniak

Here are just a few of the summery paintings that I have available. All of these are acrylic on canvas. If you are interested in purchasing my art please email sfeniakart@gmail.com Remember, I have many more paintings to choose from. My art is all original, I do not make prints.


Seaside Idyll

Seaside Idyll is the tentative title for my latest painting. The photos are of my process and progress for the painting. For my inspiration I used an image taken by a friend of mine. Unfortunately she can’t remember where she took the shot. I do know it was taken somewhere in the pacific north west. Possibly a view from an area around or near Vancouver BC looking towards Vancouver Island in the distance or vice-versa. Regardless I found it an interesting view. When I spotted the 12″ x 36″ canvas I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. FYI This particular size of canvas is very difficult to get a good photo of!

Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on a 12″ x 36″ gallery canvas. Asking $250 plus shipping. If you are interested in this painting or any of my other pieces please email sfeniakart@gmail.com Thank you.


“Sail Away”

Drying on my easel, “Sail Away”. I took a bit of a break after World Watercolor Month and a very busy July. Of a sudden yesterday I had the urge to put palette knife, brush and paint to canvas. Oh joy! Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics and heavy gel gloss on a 20″ x 20″ canvas. There is a lot of texture in this one. And it was a lot of fun, I even used a credit card to spread and smear the paint. A true escape from the trial and tribulations this past few weeks have thrown at us. Let me know what you think. Cheers Susan

I tweaked “Sail Away”. Now I can say that I am happy with it. It’s ready for a frame, so that will be next. Cheers Susan


Still available….

Still available, my art on the dock. You can still see my art at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. It’s in the store/gas shack and on our boat right next door.  These are just a few pieces available. All are original art by me, Susan Feniak. There are hand painted greeting cards, tote bags and some watercolor paintings too. My thanks to Three Buoys Marina for providing space for me to show my art. Cheers Susan


World Watercolor Month Day 15

#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″.


The Red Barn Arts Center annual show

It’s almost time for the annual arts and crafts sale at The Red Barn Arts Center in Sicamous BC. I will have four paintings in the show this year along with several of my “one of a kind” hand painted greeting cards. If you are anywhere near Sicamous June 29th thru July 4th, please take the time to pop by and have a look. It’s well worth your time and effort. It is your chance to purchase from and support the many very talented artists and artisans of the Shuswap area. Cheers Susan Feniak

“Breakpoint”

“Breakpoint”. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas. There is something about a 12″ x 24″ canvas that screams paint a wave Susan. So I do. Waves fascinate me. I can sit and watch them for hours. Living on or near water for most of my life has allowed me that luxury. You can see more of my art @susanseasel #susanseasel

Sold work and a thank you…

SOLD Waves Brilliant Dance
Thank you

This past weekend I sold a painting. “Waves Brilliant Dance”, found a new home. I am always grateful to have someone like my art enough to hang it in their home. I appreciate the fact that art is a personal thing. Thank you to the new owners.

Now, I need to announce that I have new art promotional cards. And I need to thank Hooked Decor and What Knots in Sicamous for displaying my cards again this year. Check out the store. It is full of lovely decor items and inspiration for interior decorating. You can’t miss a real houseboat that is an actual store sitting beside the Trans Canada Highway in Sicamous. A favorite spot for browsing and getting decor ideas for me. Truly an inspirational place to visit.

If you have any questions about my art or are interested please email me at sfeniakart@gmail.com


“Tropical Daze” Framed and ready…

“Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze” is framed and ready to hang in someone’s home. I have included a couple of photos of my process for you. Palette knife painting is different from my usual brush work. I do enjoy playing with a palette knife. It’s very different and makes for a lot of texture. I also used cheesecloth and when I used a brush it was loosely, almost carefree. The scene reminds me of a tropical getaway. Something I didn’t get to enjoy this winter. Maybe next year? In the meantime dreaming and remaining hopeful will suffice. Cheers Susan
