“Dad’s Favourite”

Dad’s Favourite

“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.

Cards and a work in progress….

It’s been a while since I have been able to post something here. We live most of the warmer months on our houseboat and there is a total lack of internet service. My data suffers! I hope everyone understands.

Here are photos of two cards I recently completed. Both are watercolors and ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″.

The final three photos are the process and progress of my latest work in progress. I wonder if you can guess what flowers I am tackling this time? I will be sure to share the final edition. It’s acrylic on a 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas.

Cheers from the houseboat, artist Susan Feniak.


Looking Up

For lack of a better title I am calling this painting “Looking Up”. I go for a walk everyday and often find myself looking up. This scene is inspired by the nature trails in and around Sicamous British Columbia. Our summer home turf. I highly recommend the trails. Whatever you are doing today take the time to go for a walk and remember to stop and look up. It’s truly fascinating.

The first 3 photos are of my process and the last photo is the final painting. The end result for Looking Up!

“Flat Bottom Gals”

Flat Bottom Gals

“Flat Bottom Gals” is my latest acrylic painting on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas. A string of boats waiting for hire. Colorful, bright and cheerful. Hard to resist. I couldn’t resist the name I gave to this painting either. It’s fun too. We can all use a bit of happy these days. Right?

This painting started as a completely different idea and morphed into this. I am glad this is how it goes. One never knows where the idea or paint brushes will go…nor where ones imagination will take them.

If you are interested in this painting please message me at sfeniakart@gmail.com I am asking $250 cdn plus shipping . It’s original and I do not make copies or prints of my art.


New old and sold…

New card
Old and going to a new home
Sold

The Daisies are a new card. Something I haven’t been making lately. The Heron or “Misty Morning”, will be heading to a new home soon. I gave it away to very good friends as a wedding gift and now it will be going to a baby’s nursery. Just waiting for when that bundle of joy arrives. The small boat painting is sold. Ergo, new old and sold….

The artist for all is me, Susan Feniak. Sometimes I don’t have time for blogging or all the social media. At the moment I am without internet. News from me will be even more sporadic. For that I will apologize.

Happy Monday! Cheers


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.

Building Storm

Evening Stormy Sky

The sky fascinates me. I could watch it and the ocean forever. This time my imagination has tried to capture a storm building over the ocean with the sun setting behind the thunderheads. This provides a plethora of color and light effects. Not to mention the layers of cloud and reflections. This one was fun to paint. I let my imagination go and that is always enjoyable.

Although this is my imagination and original work, I was influenced to create this scene by an article in the March 2022 PleinAir Magazine. The article is about artist Lisa Grossman titled Adventures In Skywatching.
