Two more designs…

That’s right. I am THAT person that will remind you that Christmas is coming by posting my card designs for 2020. BTW Christmas is coming. There is no avoiding it so we should embrace it. It may just be that something that perks us all up. Goodness knows we can all use some happy these days. My cards are all individually hand painted one of a kind originals. I do not make prints so you won’t see boxes full of them any where. Hope to make you smile today. Cheers Susan

Sold not sold

Raven Trail Birch
Raven Trail Autumn

Sold and then not sold. Wait a minute and then SOLD. Proving to me that art is a very personal thing. Recently someone took a liking to my painting Raven Trail Autumn. Upon seeing it personally, other then via photo, decided that it wasn’t for them. Not quite right to their decerning eye. No problem, I have a lot of paintings to share. After being shown Raven Trail Birch it was, yes please. Ergo I am pleased to say that my painting Raven Trail Birch has SOLD. Thank you to the purchaser and giving my art a lovely forever home. Cheers Susan Feniak

“Cairo”

Cairo

Say hello to Cairo. She is the second of two recently completed commissioned pet portraits. Cairo and her mom loved to go hiking especially in the snow and mountains. Re-creating a snowy mountainous scene was a first for me. Although painting Cairo proved challenging at times I enjoyed the challenge. By the time I was done I didn’t want to let her go. Always and forever a sucker for those puppy dog eyes. Thank you to Mark and Kim for giving me the opportunity and the honor of painting your beloved dogs portraits. (See “Grizz” in my previous blog) Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 16″ x 16″ x 1.5″ canvas. Painted on all sides.

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

“High Water Sweepers”

High Water Sweepers

High Water Sweepers. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on a 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Purely from my imagination this scene could easily be along the Eagle River. The river is situated in the Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia. Sweepers are a danger to all river traffic. In particular kayaker’s and stand up paddle boarders. A person can easily get entangled in the hidden snares and snags of branches and roots. Sweepers are prevalent particularly this time of year during run off season and high water levels. Or like on a rainy day like today. As for my painting I am hoping it leaves the viewer relaxed and the natural beauty of the surroundings enjoyed. Cheers Susan Feniak. This painting is framed and at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. Asking $275. Oh and I do hope you notice the wild roses are in bloom.

One of my favorites…

Misty Morning

I had to bring all my art home from Gallery One Fifty today. We live and work on the shore of Shuswap Lake and the lake has decided to flood this year. As of last weekend the lake had risen 17 feet. It does come up every year. But because of a high snow pack in the back country this winter the lake is exceptionally high. Gallery One Fifty decided for safety sake that we artists should get our art out. The gallery will reopen as soon as the flood threat ends and the limitations of COVID 19 are lifted. Meanwhile I will get to enjoy one of my own paintings hanging up in our houseboat summer home. Misty Morning has always been a particular favorite of mine. FYI An artist isn’t supposed to bring all her art home especially all at once. I have no idea where I will put the rest!

Artist Susan Feniak. Golden acrylics on 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas. $200

Mr Heron

Mr Heron. Also known to me as The Three Buoys Great Blue Heron. He’s back! I think every year I pay respect to the return of the Blue Heron on Shuswap Lake. Such a beautiful bird to watch. Truly a favorite of mine.

A long time on the easel!

Progress! As you may know I was on hiatus in Mexico for a month. We returned safely a while back but as you also know things have gone sideways in this old world of ours.

Between getting caught up with work (I work from home) and other commitments there has been precious little time for art and getting caught up with it. I started this painting before we went away. By the time I got back to playing with it I couldn’t remember my original plan. Whether that is my age or these challenging times I don’t know. This is what I am doing with what I started. If all else fails add a nest and some birdies and carry on from there. This is me and my art.

I hope all of you are okay. Please stay healthy and be safe. We can get through this crisis with our art.
