Hermit Bay

Hermit Bay. My latest painting. I need to come up with a name for this one yet. This was the view from our kitchen window on our houseboat last week while beached at Hermits Bay on Shuswap Lake. How fortunate am I to have this view rain or shine while cooking our meals? This painting is acrylic on 12″ x 16″ box canvas. Cheers Susan


Hanging Around

Hanging Around is more about reflections and the Blue Heron then anything else. A busy weekend working on assorted projects aboard our boat but I still managed to sneak in art time. Thankful for a thoughtful husband who let’s me be me. Which is hang around messing about with my watercolors, brushes and papers. Hope you had a lovely weekend too.


Boating Season

Boating season for us officially began this past weekend. Hopefully you can see my smile. If you don’t hear or see much from me for the next several months it’s because I don’t have an internet connection on the boat. I will post as often as possible. I will of course continue to paint and create. Cheers Susan.


Sea dog

Yesterday I busied myself making cards to display and hopefully sale this summer at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. Sea dog is one of them. At our marina dogs and boats belong together. Fondly referred to as boater dogs. That being said this fella should be called lake dog. Lake or sea the water is the place to be for me. Boating season begins this weekend. Hooray!


Twilight At The Narrows

Twilight At The Narrows. This is Brock point at Cinnemousun Narrows, Shuswap Lake. At a certain time of day and the perfect calm conditions Shuswap Lake really does glow with a golden aura. Like a jewel that it is. I have wanted to paint this scene for years. Capture it on canvas as a constant reminder of the beauty. I feel somewhat disappointed with this attempt. Perhaps it’s because I know from first hand experience what it’s like to witness Twilight At The Narrows. Acrylic on 16″ x 20″ box canvas framed.


A Revision

SOLD I revised my painting “Tomorrow Is Another Day”. I added more shading on the boats facing away from the sun and added more sun light reflecting in other areas. Hopefully these touches are sufficient to show what I was trying to achieve. Boats sitting calmly under a cloudy sky, surrounded by the glow of a setting sun. My art is available for sale. Tomorrow Is Another Day does not need a frame. $300 plus shipping and handling.


“Dan’s Canvas & Sail”

Dan’s Canvas and Sail is finally done! I am actually pleased with how this one turned out. It was nice to visit one of my favourite subjects again. I wonder how this scene would play out on my easel using acrylics? Might have to try that one day. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink on Fabriano 11″ x 14″ paper. Unframed $100.
