“Flat Bottom Gals”

Flat Bottom Gals

“Flat Bottom Gals” is my latest acrylic painting on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas. A string of boats waiting for hire. Colorful, bright and cheerful. Hard to resist. I couldn’t resist the name I gave to this painting either. It’s fun too. We can all use a bit of happy these days. Right?

This painting started as a completely different idea and morphed into this. I am glad this is how it goes. One never knows where the idea or paint brushes will go…nor where ones imagination will take them.

If you are interested in this painting please message me at sfeniakart@gmail.com I am asking $250 cdn plus shipping . It’s original and I do not make copies or prints of my art.


New old and sold…

New card
Old and going to a new home
Sold

The Daisies are a new card. Something I haven’t been making lately. The Heron or “Misty Morning”, will be heading to a new home soon. I gave it away to very good friends as a wedding gift and now it will be going to a baby’s nursery. Just waiting for when that bundle of joy arrives. The small boat painting is sold. Ergo, new old and sold….

The artist for all is me, Susan Feniak. Sometimes I don’t have time for blogging or all the social media. At the moment I am without internet. News from me will be even more sporadic. For that I will apologize.

Happy Monday! Cheers

“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

From a distance. Cheers Susan Feniak

Working on cards…

Juno

I have been working on cards lately. There are several family birthdays and events coming up. I still like sending cards and enjoy making them. “Juno” is based on a painting I loved in the Artists Magazine March/April 2021 issue. The original was done by artist Johne Richardson. I couldn’t resist Juno’s expression and needed to recreate it. The other two cards are self explanatory. All three cards are QoR watercolor, ink and or gouache. Artist Susan Feniak. My cards sell for $10

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.
