It is not in my nature to give up. This painting has under gone several rethinks and remakes. Is “rethinks” a word? It is now. I will live with this version for a few days and then decide if I am finished or not. It will need a name at some point as well. I hope you are staying well and safe. We can all get through these challenging times. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 16″ x 20″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. Thanks for stopping by.
Progress! As you may know I was on hiatus in Mexico for a month. We returned safely a while back but as you also know things have gone sideways in this old world of ours.
Between getting caught up with work (I work from home) and other commitments there has been precious little time for art and getting caught up with it. I started this painting before we went away. By the time I got back to playing with it I couldn’t remember my original plan. Whether that is my age or these challenging times I don’t know. This is what I am doing with what I started. If all else fails add a nest and some birdies and carry on from there. This is me and my art.
I hope all of you are okay. Please stay healthy and be safe. We can get through this crisis with our art.
“Shine On”. This is how I deal with the cold snowy days of our Canadian winter. I dream of a sunny warmer climate and swimming with a smiling Tortuga. And then create that scene on my easel. I hope Shine On makes you feel warm and cozy. If a tortuga can smile then so can we. No matter what. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 24″ x 24″ canvas. I may have to keep this one for a little while. An update: since posting this my tortuga has been given a name, Trudy. Trudy now greets everyone entering our front door with her smile.
I would like to thank everyone for helping make 2019 a stellar year for me artistically. I had a lot of fun along the way. I am very thankful for your continued support with “likes” and kind comments. For those of you that liked my art enough to purchase it and hang it in your homes I am grateful. Here is hoping that 2020 is another creative year. With my sincerest wish that everyone has a happy healthy 2020. PEACE. Susan Feniak
Proof? Every one of my cards is a one of. I draw and then paint every one. No two are the same. Or so it would seem by my panda bears this year. They all have such different faces and expressions. I have my favorite here. Do you?
