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
“My oh my!” My Iris painting is finished. It was a challenge with a few revisions and many hours spent at my easel. The reward? Well the painting itself of course and before I could finish it, it sold! Its always so reassuring to have someone love your creation enough to hang it in their personal space. See me smile? Thank you to the purchaser. I know “My oh my!” is going to a very good home.

As we start a new year I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that supported me in my artistic endeavors during 2021. A special thank you to my peers. Becoming an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists was the highlight of my year.
I am looking forward to 2022, optimistically and positively. Since I am now officially retired I will now have more time for art, blogging and social media. Look out!
Happy New Year! My very best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and creative 2022. Cheers Susan Feniak
I am proud to announce that I achieved my Active Status in the prestigious Federation of Canadian Artists. I submitted 10 of my most recent paintings to the Federation (FCA) to be juried by my peers. This was my fourth or fifth attempt and at last success! I feel honored. I will continue to practice and to learn. Most of all I will continue to enjoy creating. Art is essential!
“Splendiferous”, is my latest painting and is still drying on my easel. With these photos I am showing you the different stages of my process and progress. All were posted on my Instagram and Facebook accounts. #susanseasel Luckily for me “Splendiferous” sold within 1/2 hour of my posting it on my Facebook feed. Thank you to the purchaser who happens to be a collector of my art. For the first time ever I gessoed over a painting that I started earlier this summer. I can’t explain it, I have never lost interest in a painting before. I didn’t know what to do. It’s not like me to loose interest in a painting. That being said there have been many extenuating circumstances that probably caused me to loose that interest. It’s been a ruff and tumble summer for us. Am I ever glad I did what I did. Lesson learned. This painting is a far better one than the original and I was in a far happier space creating it.

Happy New Year! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative 2021. Let’s be positive.
This is a “selfie” of me. I don’t like getting my photo taken nor do I do selphies well. They are something I will rarely share.
The other photo is my “Top Nine” posts on Instagram in 2020. Not my choices but Instagram’s. Interesting and somewhat surprising. I was happy to see my personal favorite “Shine On” a.k.a. Trudy Tortuga made the list. Amazed my watercolors and ink were as popular as they are. Go figure.
Moving on to new projects and I am hopeful the year ahead will be better. Surely being positive will see us through. Cheers Susan
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
