“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!

Mr Heron

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.

Raven Trail Autumn

Raven Trail Autumn. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 16″×20″ box canvas. Raven Trail is one of my favourite walks near where we live. Fall is not my favourite time of year mostly because winter comes next. I am Canadian. But that doesn’t mean I love winter. All that being said I do enjoy all the autumnal colours and kicking up the fallen leaves. I hope my painting evokes those pleasantries. Cheers Susan
