Busy creating Christmas cards….

I have been creating Christmas cards as fast as I can. These are just a sampling of the ones I have made so far this year. No two are the same, ergo, “one of a kind”. This year my “one of a kind” cards are available for sale at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm BC. I am pleased to have this opportunity. Thank you for shopping local and supporting your local small business owners and artisans.

As always I hope my happy quirky critters make you smile.

New art!! “Sunny Disposition”

New art!! So new it’s still drying on my easel and I have just given it a title, “Sunny Disposition”.

It’s something bright and cheerful just for you on what is a rather dull day here in the Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia.

I have included photos of my process and progress. One photo also shows how I finish the sides of every painting I do on a gallery canvas.

Fingers crossed it cheers everyone. I do like it when my art causes smiles.

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.

“Mara Twilight”

Mara Twilight

“Mara Twilight”. Believe it or not I have completed another painting. I am continually inspired by the views that I am fortunate enough to enjoy during the warmer months of the year. This painting is based on a photo that I took from the back of our houseboat late last summer. It had been a wet stormy day. The weather cleared as the sun set to reveal this glorious scene. I hope you like my second painting of Mara Lake completed so far this year. Okay second painting of Mara Lake in a week.

New art in progress…

“Hyde to Mara”. Time for a change from flowers and paint a local scene. Based on a photo I took last summer after the wild fire smoke cleared. The view from Hyde Mountain golf course looking out over Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Remember that this is a work in progress. This is an inspiring view for anyone to enjoy.

Back to the easel…

Work in progress

The Christmas tree is down and my easel is back up. You guessed it. My easel usually sits where the Christmas tree was. I don’t have a studio or art room. I paint in a corner of our living room. It’s nice to be back to creating. This painting has been sitting around for far too long and is still a work in progress. I hope to finish it soon. Cheers Susan Feniak

Happy 2022!!

As we start a new year I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that supported me in my artistic endeavors during 2021. A special thank you to my peers. Becoming an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists was the highlight of my year.

I am looking forward to 2022, optimistically and positively. Since I am now officially retired I will now have more time for art, blogging and social media. Look out!

Happy New Year! My very best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and creative 2022. Cheers Susan Feniak


December is a busy time

December is a busy time for everyone. This year I made almost 4 dozen Christmas cards. About 1/2 of them sold the rest were sent out to family and friends. Today we had our first major snow event of the season. That meant we needed to shovel snow off our houseboat. And of course what is December without a visit with the jolly old elf himself. And yes I have been good all year. No wish list involved. Just my hope that everyone stays safe and healthy this Christmas. Cheers Susan Feniak
