Two for…

Peek-a-boo
Name or title?

I have two fresh watercolor and ink paintings for you today. Now that the weather has warmed up a wee bit we are spending more time on our boat. There is no internet on our boat or dock. You may not see as much of my art or get many comments or likes from me for the next while. It can’t be helped. I will do what I can when I can. In the meantime here is Zelda Zebra who has been busy since we last saw her. The pond is my imagination at play, an idyllic scene. Both pieces are watercolor, ink and gouache on 11″ x 14″ Fabriano paper. Artist Susan Feniak

“Show Stopper”

Show Stopper

“Show Stopper”. My latest acrylic painting is of a photo I took while in Mexico a year or so ago. Before COVID, when we were still allowed to travel. This beautiful pink hibiscus greeted us on the path that led to our condo. I couldn’t resist taking a photo. And I have been meaning to do a painting of it since.

“Tropical Daze” Framed and ready…

“Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze” is framed and ready to hang in someone’s home. I have included a couple of photos of my process for you. Palette knife painting is different from my usual brush work. I do enjoy playing with a palette knife. It’s very different and makes for a lot of texture. I also used cheesecloth and when I used a brush it was loosely, almost carefree. The scene reminds me of a tropical getaway. Something I didn’t get to enjoy this winter. Maybe next year? In the meantime dreaming and remaining hopeful will suffice. Cheers Susan

Forging ahead… with “Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze”

Celebrating 10 years, here on WordPress.

“Tropical Daze” is the title I have given to my latest fun painting. After another set back I am forging ahead with my art. I won’t let rejection get me down, not this gal. This is a brand new painting on my easel, still drying. I certainly enjoyed using my palette knife while creating this piece. I used a palette almost exclusively. There is very little brush work. I did make use of some cheesecloth to add different texture, especially to the clouds. All in all great fun. It seems that these days if I am not thinking about spring I am thinking about some tropical paradise. Or so it would seem by my artistic endeavors. My new easel is no longer new looking. Tropical Daze is acrylic and gloss medium on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas, framed with a metal white frame. Asking $200

Frames for two…

“Spring’s Bounty”
“Tulip Glow”

“Spring’s Bounty” and “Tulip Glow” both got frames this weekend. I am fortunate to have a great friend who is happy to build frames for my art. I think she did a fantastic job. I think both paintings needed the rustic barn board look. Being a watercolor Spring’s Bounty is under anti glare glass. Don’t ask my husband how much that cost. Oops. Always get a price before ordering. Just saying. Both pieces are original and available for sale. You can see them and pricing in previous posts.

Artist Susan Feniak. If you want to contact me about my art please email sfeniakart@gmail.com I do not respond to scam or spam emails. I have gotten too many of those nasty emails. I am saddened by people who have nothing better to with their time than try to scam or cheat people out of their money and work.


“Tulip Glow”

Tulip Glow

I went with a totally different name than I originally thought. Just glad to finally have a title for my painting, “Tulip Glow”. Sometimes naming or giving a title to one’s art can be more difficult than it seems. Or even should be. I wanted to avoid the word “Spring” in the title simply because that seemed to limit the painting to one season. Why not enjoy a bright and cheerful painting all year long? Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″. Asking $250 plus shipping.

Reaching? Or Baker’s Dozen?

Reaching or Baker’s Dozen? I am not sure of the name yet. But if you need a touch of spring here it is. It’s been awhile since I did a painting of flowers. Now I remember why it’s been so long. They drive me crazy. But as always I did enjoy the creative process. It’s bright and cheerful. Something we can all use. Spring will come it always does. Cheers Susan

“Overseer” from beginning to framing…

“Overseer”

My painting “Overseer”, is framed and hanging in our living room, for now. The photos will give you some idea of my process, and the actual size of the finished painting. As a rule I take very few photos of my process. I have never done a video or made a podcast. This is as good as it gets. “Overseer” is acrylic on 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas, varnished. The frame is pre-made from Opus. It’s wood and black. My reference photo was kindly provided by nature photographer Mark Schroeder.

“Overseer”

“Overseer “

Overseer, my latest painting is finished. I would like to thank nature photographer Mark Schroeder for the reference photo. This Great Blue Heron is a frequent visitor to the Sicamous Channel Shuswap Lake BC. I try to paint it’s portrait at least once a year. With this portrait I may have finally paid this majestic bird some justice. I hope you like it.

Happy New Year

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
