“Dad’s Favourite”, my latest painting is drying on my easel. A little known fact is that I grew hollyhocks in my garden for years just for my Dad. He told me once that they were his favourite flower and that they reminded him of his grandmother and her garden. So here is my tribute to Dad’s favourite flower, the hollyhock. I no longer have a garden to plant the seeds that grow into these lovely old fashioned garden standards, but, I can certainly paint them.
There are several photos of my start to my finished painting. Enjoy.

It’s a rainy day here. A perfect day to make some more “one of a kind cards”. “Duke and Princess”. Years ago I did a painting similar to this one. At that time I considered it a turning point in my watercolor work. I left it up to the viewer to decide which one is Duke and which one is Princess. I am doing that again this time.
“Fiona” is “Hamish’s” sister. You may remember Hamish from last year. He was a 9″ x 11″ painting. Now hanging in a friend’s home. Fiona is a card I made for another friends birthday. Fiona seems to have managed to get herself into the same predicament as Hamish!

New art! “Spring’s Bounty” A watercolor this time. This is big for me, especially when it comes to working with watercolors. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to create. I didn’t draw anything, I just started to paint. My first of a few mistakes was that I chose the wrong background color. With perseverance and an arsenal of supplies I ended up with this painting as the result. There is everything on there from gouache to Daniel Smith, QoR, Derwent watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, salt, you name it. At one point I even had my oil pastels out. There came the classic moment, am I done or not? Maybe? I had a blast, especially splattering and playing with a hake brush. Hope it pleases your eye.

Another rainy day has me thinking about Autumn. It seems like yesterday I was planning days around sunshine and warmth. Swimming and boating. Lazy days relaxing by the lake. Now here I am planning how, where and when to put our summer toys away for another season. Pack up our belongings and winterize. Prepare for the cold snowy days and nights of Winter. Because that is what comes after Autumn. No wonder I don’t care for Autumn. It signals what is to come. Good thing there is a bright side. I love autumnal colors.
Here is some of my art on display and for sale at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. The gallery is at The Red Barn on Riverside Ave. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you want to meet me I host almost every Sunday. Hope to see you there. Cheers Susan Feniak
Raven Trail Autumn. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 16″×20″ box canvas. Raven Trail is one of my favourite walks near where we live. Fall is not my favourite time of year mostly because winter comes next. I am Canadian. But that doesn’t mean I love winter. All that being said I do enjoy all the autumnal colours and kicking up the fallen leaves. I hope my painting evokes those pleasantries. Cheers Susan
Such a long title for a small painting. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Colors on 8″ × 8″ canvas board. Found these nice little canvases in a plain wood frame. I have painted the frame the same color as the bike. Wishing I had bought more of them. Happy Monday!
