Many thanks….

As this year comes to a close I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that supported me in my artistic endeavors. Your continued support is very much appreciated. For me this year has been one of ups and downs. And although I am not one to wish time away I am not sad to see the end of 2022. All that being said I believe that I have managed to create some decent art.

My sincerest wishes to each and everyone of you for a happy, healthy and creative 2023.

Artist Susan Feniak. All these pieces of original art were SOLD 🔴 in 2022 along with countless “one of a kind” greeting cards. I am beyond grateful. Thank you all, again.

Me, saying thank you.

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.

Something completely different from me.

A commission

This painting was indeed completely different for me to do. I have never done any lettering, and I have decided that I don’t care to ever do it again. The grapes, wine glass, bottle and wine were something I have never tackled on canvas with acrylic paints before either. The reflections on the glass and motion of the pouring wine were fun to recreate. The purchaser gave me the words and a vague idea of what she had in mind and then pretty much gave me free reign to do what I thought best. To quote, “do that thing you do”. Admittedly I did enjoy taking her idea and recreating something out of that. Because I had never done anything like this before I gave her a screeching good deal. Lesson learned, every painting takes just as long for me to do with just as much thought going into it. Each and every painting is special to me. And most importantly I have a reputation to uphold. I try to do my very best every time. Although grateful for this opportunity and pleased to do this for a friend, screeching good deals shouldn’t happen.

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.

I dropped off 6 new “one of a kind” hand painted greeting cards at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm on Alexander St today as well.

We have been recovering from or trying to find our way through the grief following the death of our youngest son. Thanks to the love and support of our friends and loved ones we are finding our way.

It is almost time for me to set up my easel and escape into my art….

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.
