Best Buddies

Best Buddies

“Best Buddies”. My latest acrylic on canvas painting. I hadn’t painted a larger doggie painting until now. My usual animal creations are normally done with watercolors. Milo and Molly are from my imagination. Yes, I gave them names, but I will let you decide who is who. I hope you like them.

The start to a seascape..

I have made a good start to another seascape. It has become apparent to me that I am happiest painting larger pieces and water. This after trying to increase my small pieces inventory. I will finish this one and get back to the smaller works. Having a good variety to share with everyone is important, collectors, purchasers, venues and all.

“Hyde to Mara”

Hyde to Mara

My latest painting “Hyde to Mara”, is DONE! This painting is based on a photo I took last summer. Lunch at the Hyde Mountain golf course includes this idyllic view of Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Playing golf is not for me but I will gladly enjoy lunch at the golf course just to partake of the views from many vantage points. I have been wanting to capture this particular view on canvas for some time. I hope I have done it some justice.

Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on a 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Asking $375 plus shipping. Painted on all sides so doesn’t need a frame. This is original art. I do not make prints. If you are interested please email sfeniakart@gmail.com


New art in progress…

“Hyde to Mara”. Time for a change from flowers and paint a local scene. Based on a photo I took last summer after the wild fire smoke cleared. The view from Hyde Mountain golf course looking out over Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Remember that this is a work in progress. This is an inspiring view for anyone to enjoy.

My oh my! Finished

My oh my!

“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.

My oh my, Iris’s are a challenge!

I was asked to paint some purple Iris’s awhile back. Several months ago actually. I decided that it was time to see if I was up to the challenge. The photos are of my step by step process, progress and changes. Still very much a work in progress but I thought I would share anyway. I am enjoying myself and I am embracing my purple and violet hues, again. No photo reference, all original. Talk about flying by the seat of my pants. Ha ha!

“Musing”

Musing

“Musing”. I am declaring this one done. My imagination was at play with this painting. Musing or daydreaming about a warm sunny place. A place to brighten any dull Canadian winter day. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on a 24″ x 30″ gallery canvas. Asking $450. This is an original piece of art. I do not make copies or prints. If you are interested please email sfeniakart@gmail.com Thank you.


Back to the easel…

Work in progress

The Christmas tree is down and my easel is back up. You guessed it. My easel usually sits where the Christmas tree was. I don’t have a studio or art room. I paint in a corner of our living room. It’s nice to be back to creating. This painting has been sitting around for far too long and is still a work in progress. I hope to finish it soon. Cheers Susan Feniak

Happy 2022!!

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


FCA Submitted Art

Anfractuous
Splendiferous
Yellow Maze
Show Stopper
Center Stage
Sail Away
Breakpoint
Ebb and Flow
Quietude
Tropical Daze

These are the ten paintings that I submitted to the Federation of Canadian Artists to achieve my “Active Member” status. All of them are acrylic on canvas. Various sizes. They are all original either from my imagination or from a memory. Sometimes I use a photo that I have taken for inspiration. Regardless a jury of my peers thought at least six or more of the ten (six being the minimum) were good enough to be juried into any art show hosted by the FCA in Canada. I am thrilled to have accomplished this feat as it has been a personal goal of mine for some time.

Hope you enjoy. Cheers Susan Feniak
