“High Water Sweepers”

High Water Sweepers

High Water Sweepers. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on a 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Purely from my imagination this scene could easily be along the Eagle River. The river is situated in the Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia. Sweepers are a danger to all river traffic. In particular kayaker’s and stand up paddle boarders. A person can easily get entangled in the hidden snares and snags of branches and roots. Sweepers are prevalent particularly this time of year during run off season and high water levels. Or like on a rainy day like today. As for my painting I am hoping it leaves the viewer relaxed and the natural beauty of the surroundings enjoyed. Cheers Susan Feniak. This painting is framed and at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. Asking $275. Oh and I do hope you notice the wild roses are in bloom.

Going gone…

Saturday was an exciting day! “When It’s Calm” and “Lifting Fog” went to new homes. Thank you to the new owners. It’s always reassuring and gratifying when someone likes what one creates enough to hang it on a wall in their home. I am appreciative of everyone’s continued support of my artistic endeavors. Again, thank you. Susan Feniak

FYI Lifting Fog had been previously damaged but I managed to repair it. The purchaser was dutifully informed. I am not in the habit of selling damaged goods.

One of my favorites…

Misty Morning

I had to bring all my art home from Gallery One Fifty today. We live and work on the shore of Shuswap Lake and the lake has decided to flood this year. As of last weekend the lake had risen 17 feet. It does come up every year. But because of a high snow pack in the back country this winter the lake is exceptionally high. Gallery One Fifty decided for safety sake that we artists should get our art out. The gallery will reopen as soon as the flood threat ends and the limitations of COVID 19 are lifted. Meanwhile I will get to enjoy one of my own paintings hanging up in our houseboat summer home. Misty Morning has always been a particular favorite of mine. FYI An artist isn’t supposed to bring all her art home especially all at once. I have no idea where I will put the rest!

Water water everywhere…

“The Zone”

Water water everywhere! I am naming my latest water themed painting ” The Zone”. Simply because I got into a zone whilst painting it. By the time I decided that it was finished I was sure hours had passed. Or at least the entire afternoon. It had only taken me an hour and a half from start to finish. Does this happen to any of you?

Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on a 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Colors used were Light Green (yellow shade), Green Gold, Cobalt Teal, Azurite Hue, Cerulean Blue Chronium, Titanium White. All favorites of mine.

Mr Heron

Mr Heron

Mr Heron. Also known to me as The Three Buoys Great Blue Heron. He’s back! I think every year I pay respect to the return of the Blue Heron on Shuswap Lake. Such a beautiful bird to watch. Truly a favorite of mine.

Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron ink on 8″ x 10″ Fabriano paper.

A remake of an old favourite.

Lifting Fog 2

Both SOLD Recently the original painting Lifting Fog SOLD. A good thing. Unfortunately while preparing the painting for shipping it got damaged. What to do? Paint another one of course. No choice really but give it a try. You may not realize this but no two paintings turn out the same. Artists are constantly evolving. Learning new techniques, changing styles. The original painting was done two years ago.

Lifting Fog 1

But I wanted to try. I had a paying client to satisfy. I believe that I managed to get it close but not exact. My purchaser has decided to buy the new version. I am thankful for her understanding. I hope she likes it as much as the original.
