December is a busy time for everyone. This year I made almost 4 dozen Christmas cards. About 1/2 of them sold the rest were sent out to family and friends. Today we had our first major snow event of the season. That meant we needed to shovel snow off our houseboat. And of course what is December without a visit with the jolly old elf himself. And yes I have been good all year. No wish list involved. Just my hope that everyone stays safe and healthy this Christmas. Cheers Susan Feniak
Say hello to Cairo. She is the second of two recently completed commissioned pet portraits. Cairo and her mom loved to go hiking especially in the snow and mountains. Re-creating a snowy mountainous scene was a first for me. Although painting Cairo proved challenging at times I enjoyed the challenge. By the time I was done I didn’t want to let her go. Always and forever a sucker for those puppy dog eyes. Thank you to Mark and Kim for giving me the opportunity and the honor of painting your beloved dogs portraits. (See “Grizz” in my previous blog) Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 16″ x 16″ x 1.5″ canvas. Painted on all sides.

I have been busy. Designing and painting Christmas cards. Yes it’s early but when one has to come up with 50+ it takes time. Good thing I really enjoy what I am doing. I am letting my imagination fly. Hope they make you smile. Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolour and ink on Strathmore card stock.
I decided to take a day off from all the pre Christmas fun and games of shopping, decorating, baking, wrapping, cleaning, entertaining and all the other things associated with that upcoming event. Time to do some art. Now that is a switch!! Time for art?? Since it is a rather soggy sunless day in these parts I came up with a plan to paint a pair of cardinals. You know, just to get me into a better Christmas frame of mind. One thing led to another and the next thing I knew the cardinals were looking a little too snow bound and frazzled. Ergo, “Quick Lets Go South”!! I like to think the one cardinal is pointing in that direction. It looks to me like he is. Enjoy! Cheers, Susan
