Blatant self promotion.

Warning! This post is blatant self promotion of the art by me, Susan Feniak. All the paintings in the above two photos are hanging in our house. They could be hanging in yours! I ask, why not give the gift of original art for Christmas?

In this disposable society one should remember art is a forever gift. All of these pieces are original, acrylic on gallery canvas. The painting continues around all the sides of the canvas so no frames are needed.

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.

Remember

Radiant Vista

On November 11th 2022 take a moment to remember all those who have given their lives, given of themselves and given their families so we can live the life we’ve grown accustomed to.

I live in one of the best countries in the world. I enjoy freedom, peace and prosperity. For that I am grateful and try to remember more often than one day a year.

How fortunate we are! Give thanks and remember.


Latest project…Morning Breaks

“Morning Breaks”

I completed my latest project today. Photo credit and inspiration goes to my very talented Aunt Helen Worley ❤️ Thank you so much for letting me use your amazing photo. This is a sunrise and cloud fan over Semiahmoo spit with Mount Baker in the background. Semiahmoo is in northwest Washington state. My Aunt Helen named the painting “Morning Breaks”. Happily this painting also immediately sold 🔴 to my aunt the photographer. Thank you again ❤️

“Sunset on Mara”

Sunset on Mara

Sunset on Mara. This painting has a lot of meaning for me. It is emotionally charged. Firstly it is the first painting since the death of our youngest son. Secondly it is based on a photo that I took the evening after his death. I could see a bird taking flight in the cloud formation. It was a perfect evening and a spectacular sunset. A beautiful memory to have and hold. Ergo it had to be memorialized on canvas by my hands, brushes and imagination.

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.

My cards are all 4″ x 6″, hand painted original pieces of art. Artist Susan Feniak

World Watercolor Month Days 28 and 29

World Watercolor Month Days 28 and 29. I invited my old friends to join me in the festivities. “Ollie” was the first to arrive. I hope “Gretchen” arrives soon.

We are in the midst of a heatwave here in BC but that hasn’t deterred the flowers from thriving. While out for my walks I have been spotting all manner of beauties, including black eyed susan’s. Thankfully not my namesake but I recently did have two black eyes from a bad fall. Good thing I heal quickly.
