Working on cards…

Juno

I have been working on cards lately. There are several family birthdays and events coming up. I still like sending cards and enjoy making them. “Juno” is based on a painting I loved in the Artists Magazine March/April 2021 issue. The original was done by artist Johne Richardson. I couldn’t resist Juno’s expression and needed to recreate it. The other two cards are self explanatory. All three cards are QoR watercolor, ink and or gouache. Artist Susan Feniak. My cards sell for $10

“Show Stopper”

Show Stopper

“Show Stopper”. My latest acrylic painting is of a photo I took while in Mexico a year or so ago. Before COVID, when we were still allowed to travel. This beautiful pink hibiscus greeted us on the path that led to our condo. I couldn’t resist taking a photo. And I have been meaning to do a painting of it since.

“Tropical Daze” Framed and ready…

“Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze” is framed and ready to hang in someone’s home. I have included a couple of photos of my process for you. Palette knife painting is different from my usual brush work. I do enjoy playing with a palette knife. It’s very different and makes for a lot of texture. I also used cheesecloth and when I used a brush it was loosely, almost carefree. The scene reminds me of a tropical getaway. Something I didn’t get to enjoy this winter. Maybe next year? In the meantime dreaming and remaining hopeful will suffice. Cheers Susan

Forging ahead… with “Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze”

Celebrating 10 years, here on WordPress.

“Tropical Daze” is the title I have given to my latest fun painting. After another set back I am forging ahead with my art. I won’t let rejection get me down, not this gal. This is a brand new painting on my easel, still drying. I certainly enjoyed using my palette knife while creating this piece. I used a palette almost exclusively. There is very little brush work. I did make use of some cheesecloth to add different texture, especially to the clouds. All in all great fun. It seems that these days if I am not thinking about spring I am thinking about some tropical paradise. Or so it would seem by my artistic endeavors. My new easel is no longer new looking. Tropical Daze is acrylic and gloss medium on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas, framed with a metal white frame. Asking $200

Frames for two…

“Spring’s Bounty”
“Tulip Glow”

“Spring’s Bounty” and “Tulip Glow” both got frames this weekend. I am fortunate to have a great friend who is happy to build frames for my art. I think she did a fantastic job. I think both paintings needed the rustic barn board look. Being a watercolor Spring’s Bounty is under anti glare glass. Don’t ask my husband how much that cost. Oops. Always get a price before ordering. Just saying. Both pieces are original and available for sale. You can see them and pricing in previous posts.

I am saddened by people who have nothing better to with their time than try to scam or cheat people out of their money and work.


New Watercolor “Spring’s Bounty”

“Spring’s Bounty”

New art! “Spring’s Bounty” A watercolor this time. This is big for me, especially when it comes to working with watercolors. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to create. I didn’t draw anything, I just started to paint. My first of a few mistakes was that I chose the wrong background color. With perseverance and an arsenal of supplies I ended up with this painting as the result. There is everything on there from gouache to Daniel Smith, QoR, Derwent watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, salt, you name it. At one point I even had my oil pastels out. There came the classic moment, am I done or not? Maybe? I had a blast, especially splattering and playing with a hake brush. Hope it pleases your eye.

“Tulip Glow”

Tulip Glow

I went with a totally different name than I originally thought. Just glad to finally have a title for my painting, “Tulip Glow”. Sometimes naming or giving a title to one’s art can be more difficult than it seems. Or even should be. I wanted to avoid the word “Spring” in the title simply because that seemed to limit the painting to one season. Why not enjoy a bright and cheerful painting all year long? Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″. Asking $250 plus shipping.

Reaching? Or Baker’s Dozen?

Reaching or Baker’s Dozen? I am not sure of the name yet. But if you need a touch of spring here it is. It’s been awhile since I did a painting of flowers. Now I remember why it’s been so long. They drive me crazy. But as always I did enjoy the creative process. It’s bright and cheerful. Something we can all use. Spring will come it always does. Cheers Susan

“Overseer” from beginning to framing…

“Overseer”

My painting “Overseer”, is framed and hanging in our living room, for now. The photos will give you some idea of my process, and the actual size of the finished painting. As a rule I take very few photos of my process. I have never done a video or made a podcast. This is as good as it gets. “Overseer” is acrylic on 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas, varnished. The frame is pre-made from Opus. It’s wood and black. My reference photo was kindly provided by nature photographer Mark Schroeder.
