“Seaside Moment”. I think that will be the name of my latest painting. I don’t as a rule paint people or children. I decided to challenge myself and tackle my nemesis. And it is on a bigger canvas too. Nothing like challenging oneself and having fun while doing it. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 24″ x 24″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. Asking $350.00 plus shipping.
Work in progress on my easel. It’s waiting for me to finish. After several beautiful sun filled days yesterday we had clouds with showers. It was an art attack kind of day. I am never sure if I should share my works in progress. Being self taught my progress could seem very wrong to the experts. But it works for me. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 24″ x 24″ canvas.
SOLD Dingy Round Up. My latest acrylic painting. What do you think? Knowing boaters like I do if I came across this scene I would know there is a party near by. Of course I would join in. Golden acrylics on 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ thick canvas painted on all sides. $250
Day 23 World Watercolor Month. The prompt Beach Fun. This is as good of a sandcastle I was ever able to build. Probably the reason for that is I preferred to be in the water swimming. The only reason I would be building a sandcastle is because my Mother would be making me take the obligatory 30 minute wait after our picnic lunch. Remember those? They were the longest minutes of my childhood.
Play time is art time. A happy place is at the beach. Any beach. The happiest place of all? On our boat. I hope to be spending time on our happiest place of all soon. In the meantime I will paint a beach, any beach will do. Smiling. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink 8″ x 10″ Fabriano paper.
World Watercolor Month Continues! So far I have managed to paint something every day. They are all on my Instagram account. Sadly I have fallen behind here and on Facebook. Here is a smattering. Happy Monday!
I can imagine grabbing onto that rope, swing out over the water, and jump! How exhilarating! I better wait until summer to have a go. You are never too old to have a little fun. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors on Fabriano cold press paper. 8″×10″.
I owe you all an explanation as to why you haven’t seen much from me lately. In a matter of a few days we bought a houseboat, sold our home, bought another home, and sold our beloved boat. Big changes happening in our lives! There was a lot going on in August. A gallery acceptance and the resulting three paintings sold. The marina where we keep our boat (s) also asked me to display my art there for sell. In September I will be busy packing and culling for the downsize to a smaller home. Fit in boating time before the snow flies. And find time for art. The photos are our new to us houseboat. “Poppies” SOLD in less then two weeks. “Bobbers” A water color I stole time for today. Please bare with me while we get our lives back on track and reorganized. I will be in touch when I can. Cheers Susan
