“Shine On”. This is how I deal with the cold snowy days of our Canadian winter. I dream of a sunny warmer climate and swimming with a smiling Tortuga. And then create that scene on my easel. I hope Shine On makes you feel warm and cozy. If a tortuga can smile then so can we. No matter what. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 24″ x 24″ canvas. I may have to keep this one for a little while. An update: since posting this my tortuga has been given a name, Trudy. Trudy now greets everyone entering our front door with her smile.

Day 23 World Watercolor Month. The prompt Beach Fun. This is as good of a sandcastle I was ever able to build. Probably the reason for that is I preferred to be in the water swimming. The only reason I would be building a sandcastle is because my Mother would be making me take the obligatory 30 minute wait after our picnic lunch. Remember those? They were the longest minutes of my childhood.

If you were wondering what’s next, no worries. I knew all along. It had to be Flamingos. The perfect follow up to Christmas elephants and giraffes. It is snowing where I live today so I had to think of warmer places. These two helped. Artist Susan Feniak. Original art using Koi watercolour on Strathmore card stock.

#WorldWatercolorMonth and #SelfieArt Day July 25 So here I am being brave again! Not only have I tackled a selfie but I am showing myself swimming! Of course it helps I am in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. Grand Turks Caicos. By now all of you should know I love the water. Whether it is some far away winter escape or here on the sunny shores of the Shuswap. Most photos of me involve the water some where. So why not paintings too?

Yes, another memory of Belize! I can’t help myself. White sandy beaches, the beautiful waters of the Caribbean lapping at the shore, a gentle breeze rustling the palms. Besides, I needed another painting for one of the walls of our new house. And that painting needed to be bright and sunny but relaxing at the same time. Hope I succeeded.
Cheers, Susan Feniak

My first painting of 2016! Being in need of some sunshine and warmth I recalled this scene from our trip to Belize last winter. I came across these Pelicans “All In A Row” while riding my bike around Caye Caulker. The Pelicans are no doubt resting after feeding on the catch of the day or perhaps they are waiting for the next fishing boat to come in. Maybe they are just sunning themselves. Whatever they are doing the scene brought back fond memories and that feeling of sunshine and warmth that I needed.

She was sitting there amongst the luxury yachts. An old girl. In boating world one could say she has lovely lines and character. Her name, Placencia Princess. These days she is relegated to tourism and sight seeing cruises in Belize. I can’t help but wonder about her past life. I thought her worthy of some attention so I painted this for her. One Princess to another. 🙂
This painting has been on and off my easel since I got home from Belize last winter. Until now life got in the way of finishing it. It was a challenge but here she is in all her splendid glory.

Today on a makeshift easel in my new office/studio I finally had time to paint something. Believe it or not I needed just the right painting for a bathroom in our new house. The Caribbean colors match perfectly. This is a view we very much enjoyed last winter. We spent hours just sitting looking out over the beautiful Caribbean. A mile away from where we sat the waves were crashing over the Belize Barrier Reef. On a good day we could hear those waves. Fond memories indeed.
Hope you have been enjoying your summer. I am happy to be back at my easel, makeshift or not.

Two more quick sketches using my new Staedtler Watercolour Pencils. The first is a busy Front Street scene from Caye Caulker Belize. All the roads on Caye Caulker are of beautiful compact white sand. If a person stops and looks at where they are walking they will see sea shells and bits of coral mixed in with the sand. I may have gotten carried away with the shade from the palm trees making that white sand disappear. It is a quick sketch with mixed results, right? The other sketch is strictly from my imagination. A bit idyllic I would say. “A Busy Front Street” is Staedtler Watercolour Pencils on Canson Mixed Media 7”x10” paper. “Small Island” is Staedtler Watercolour Pencils on Opus Essentials Sketchbook 8 1/2” x 11” paper. Both original art by Susan Feniak
p.s. The only pavement we saw while on Caye Caulker was the airport runway. No need for roads when the biggest mode of transportation are two wheeled bikes, golf carts or your very own two feet. Bliss.
