Ebb and Flow

Ebb and Flow

“Ebb and Flow”. My latest painting. As in life, water has ebbs and flow. Or maybe I mean as in water and the ocean tides, life has its ebbs and flow. Regardless, this painting reminds me of my brother and his love of the ocean. I was thinking of him while painting it. One of his favorite places was Tofino, situated on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I will and am missing my brother but I have all the happy wonderful memories of all the times spent with him. A lifetime. Dedicated to David, with love, Ebb and Flow. Gone, never to be forgotten.

Anfractuous

“Anfractuous”

“Anfractuous”. Truly a labor of love, this painting is complete and drying on my easel. If you look up the meaning of the word anfractuous, you will understand why I gave this painting that name. I hope you like it. Cheers Susan Feniak.

Another start…

I had so much fun creating my last painting that I decided to do another floral piece. It helps that I have a beautiful bunch of sunflowers sitting on our table to inspire me. After this, I think that I will be finished with florals for awhile.  It will be time for something else. I hope you enjoy my progress reports….

“Catharsis”

“Catharsis”
WIP Catharsis

Finished and drying on my easel, “Catharsis”. Purple Cone Flower or Echinacea. Although small this painting is symbolic to me on many levels. I am sending positive thoughts and healing vibes to my family in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

After weeks of drought, wildfires, ash and smoke we finally got rain. It was pure joy to go outside this morning and take in big breathes of fresher cleaner air. The fires are far from being extinguished or even under control but it is a reprieve. Thank you to the firefighters, helicopter and waterbomber crews, volunteers and behind the scene workers like mechanics that keep everything running. We are grateful to all who have been working endless hours trying to keep us safe.

“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
