“Anfractuous”. Truly a labor of love, this painting is complete and drying on my easel. If you look up the meaning of the word anfractuous, you will understand why I gave this painting that name. I hope you like it. Cheers Susan Feniak.
Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas, painted on all sides. This painting is officially SOLD.
I had so much fun creating my last painting that I decided to do another floral piece. It helps that I have a beautiful bunch of sunflowers sitting on our table to inspire me. After this, I think that I will be finished with florals for awhile. It will be time for something else. I hope you enjoy my progress reports….

“Splendiferous”, is my latest painting and is still drying on my easel. With these photos I am showing you the different stages of my process and progress. All were posted on my Instagram and Facebook accounts. #susanseasel Luckily for me “Splendiferous” sold within 1/2 hour of my posting it on my Facebook feed. Thank you to the purchaser who happens to be a collector of my art. For the first time ever I gessoed over a painting that I started earlier this summer. I can’t explain it, I have never lost interest in a painting before. I didn’t know what to do. It’s not like me to loose interest in a painting. That being said there have been many extenuating circumstances that probably caused me to loose that interest. It’s been a ruff and tumble summer for us. Am I ever glad I did what I did. Lesson learned. This painting is a far better one than the original and I was in a far happier space creating it.
Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas. Already, SOLD.
Just finished another 10″ x 10″ painting. Small by my standard. These are the progress photos and the final painting. I decided to leave the background white. Maybe it’s the start of a new trend? The title is “Yellow Maze”. If you were interested in purchasing this painting you are too late as it SOLD almost immediately. Thank you to the purchaser. Selling art has been a tuff slog this summer as venues have been few and far between. I am fortunate to have sold anything. As always I am grateful to have someone like my art enough to hang in their home and personal space. Cheers Susan

Finished and drying on my easel, “Catharsis”. Purple Cone Flower or Echinacea. Although small this painting is symbolic to me on many levels. I am sending positive thoughts and healing vibes to my family in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
After weeks of drought, wildfires, ash and smoke we finally got rain. It was pure joy to go outside this morning and take in big breathes of fresher cleaner air. The fires are far from being extinguished or even under control but it is a reprieve. Thank you to the firefighters, helicopter and waterbomber crews, volunteers and behind the scene workers like mechanics that keep everything running. We are grateful to all who have been working endless hours trying to keep us safe.

Drying on my easel, “Sail Away”. I took a bit of a break after World Watercolor Month and a very busy July. Of a sudden yesterday I had the urge to put palette knife, brush and paint to canvas. Oh joy! Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics and heavy gel gloss on a 20″ x 20″ canvas. There is a lot of texture in this one. And it was a lot of fun, I even used a credit card to spread and smear the paint. A true escape from the trial and tribulations this past few weeks have thrown at us. Let me know what you think. Cheers Susan
I tweaked “Sail Away”. Now I can say that I am happy with it. It’s ready for a frame, so that will be next. Cheers Susan
Still available, my art on the dock. You can still see my art at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. It’s in the store/gas shack and on our boat right next door. These are just a few pieces available. All are original art by me, Susan Feniak. There are hand painted greeting cards, tote bags and some watercolor paintings too. My thanks to Three Buoys Marina for providing space for me to show my art. Cheers Susan
#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 31 prompt “Jewel”. Finale! Here are some of the gems I created this month along with one final card. I did it! Despite all that has been going on around here I managed to create 31 hand painted, one of a kind, greeting cards in 31 days. I hope you have enjoyed this month long celebration of Watercolor as much as I. Thank you to Charlie O’Shields at doodlewash.com for his idea to have a month long celebration of watercolor. This is the 6th year I have participated. It is celebrated by artists around the world. Truly filling the world with beautiful art. Cheers Susan Feniak
