One framed and one named…

One framed: Once again I called upon my friend to make a frame. My painting “Quietude” needed one of her rustic board frames. I think she did a great job. Many thanks and some wine was involved.

One named: I let my husband make the final decision and he chose “Center Stage” for my latest painting. There were only three votes made and I couldn’t make up my mind. This water lily was inspired by our pond that we used to have. And if I must give more credit I will have to say that an article in the magazine Watercolor Artist, summer 2021 also inspired me to revisit painting a water lily. It’s been awhile. Center Stage is my loosely based acrylic version of a watercolor painting in the article about the artist Brent Funderburk. His work is beautiful.

“Quietude”. The process, progress and changes….

Here is my latest painting, “Quietude”. Some photos of my process, progress and changes. I almost always forget to take photos of my process and progress. The Shuswap Lake, where I live, is a beautiful area. I continue to try to capture the beauty, ambiance and lighting of where I am fortunate to live. This is an early evening. A lavender sky is not unusual. Stormy weather and restless water are just as common as this idyllic scene. Some day I will try to capture those Shuswap swells and windy conditions. Fortunately those moments are short lived. Unfortunately harder to capture. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ canvas.

“Overseer”

“Overseer “

Overseer, my latest painting is finished. I would like to thank nature photographer Mark Schroeder for the reference photo. This Great Blue Heron is a frequent visitor to the Sicamous Channel Shuswap Lake BC. I try to paint it’s portrait at least once a year. With this portrait I may have finally paid this majestic bird some justice. I hope you like it.

Finished “At Last”

At Last

Finished my first painting of 2021. “At Last” is our houseboat sitting pretty at Robert’s Bay on beautiful Shuswap Lake. I took the reference photo late last summer. It was an idyllic calm morning. Barely a ripple on the lakes surface. Perfect for reflections. I had fun re-creating those reflections. These days our girl is waiting for the sunny warm days to return and so are we. I am keeping this painting. It will hang in our land home to remind us of those sun and fun filled days of the past and to look forward to in the future. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. FYI If you would like a painting of your boat, I do commissions.

First WIP of 2021

WIP

My first painting of 2021 is in progress on my easel. It’s coming together ever so slowly. The photo reference is my own taken late last summer of our houseboat at beautiful Robert’s Bay on Shuswap Lake. It was an idyllic morning with the lake perfectly calm and flat. Reflections galore! Golden Artist Acrylics on an 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. When this painting is finally done it’s not going anywhere. It will hang on our living room wall.

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

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

I’ve been on hiatus…

My husband and I enjoyed our ten days off. We spent our vacation on our houseboat at Robert’s Bay Provincial Park Shuswap Lake British Columbia. I took many photos. These are only a few. We are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful area of Canada. Proud to be Canadian! Especially during these challenging times. Cheers Susan Feniak
