New art! A watercolor this time. This is big for me, especially when it comes to working with watercolors. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to create. I didn’t draw anything, I just started to paint. My first of a few mistakes was that I chose the wrong background color. With perseverance and an arsenal of supplies I ended up with this painting as the result. There is everything on there from gouache to Daniel Smith, QoR, Derwent watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, salt, you name it. At one point I even had my oil pastels out. There came the classic moment, am I done or not? Maybe? I had a blast, especially splattering and playing with a hake brush. Hope it pleases your eye.

I went with a totally different name than I originally thought. Just glad to finally have a title for my painting, “Tulip Glow”. Sometimes naming or giving a title to one’s art can be more difficult than it seems. Or even should be. I wanted to avoid the word “Spring” in the title simply because that seemed to limit the painting to one season. Why not enjoy a bright and cheerful painting all year long? Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″. Asking $250 plus shipping.

Reaching or Baker’s Dozen? I am not sure of the name yet. But if you need a touch of spring here it is. It’s been awhile since I did a painting of flowers. Now I remember why it’s been so long. They drive me crazy. But as always I did enjoy the creative process. It’s bright and cheerful. Something we can all use. Spring will come it always does. Cheers Susan

World Watercolor Month Day 19 prompt “Favorite Scent”. There are too many to choose one. I like everything from Mock Orange blossoms to tea roses. The smell of the ocean to freshly turned earth. Although the scent of a Stargazer Lily gets right up my husband’s nose I would have to say their perfume is a favorite of mine. Here is my take on a Stargazer Lily.

“Remembering”. My latest painting. My homage to all those who have sacrificed their lives or given of themselves so we can enjoy freedom. I live in one of the finest countries in the world because someone fought for it and for us and our future. So as Canadians we are free to live life like nowhere else. Be grateful for that freedom and our country. United in Peace. Remembrance day November 11th 2019
My first version of this painting was much smaller. Approximately 3″ x 5″. Someone asked me if I could make it a bigger size. So that is what I did. At 14″ x 18″ it is one of the biggest watercolor and ink paintings that I have done. QoR watercolor and ink on Arches paper. Artist Susan Feniak.
