Sold work and a thank you…

SOLD Waves Brilliant Dance
Thank you

This past weekend I sold a painting. “Waves Brilliant Dance”, found a new home. I am always grateful to have someone like my art enough to hang it in their home. I appreciate the fact that art is a personal thing. Thank you to the new owners.

Now, I need to announce that I have new art promotional cards. And I need to thank Hooked Decor and What Knots in Sicamous for displaying my cards again this year. Check out the store. It is full of lovely decor items and inspiration for interior decorating. You can’t miss a real houseboat that is an actual store sitting beside the Trans Canada Highway in Sicamous. A favorite spot for browsing and getting decor ideas for me. Truly an inspirational place to visit.

“Show Stopper”

Show Stopper

“Show Stopper”. My latest acrylic painting is of a photo I took while in Mexico a year or so ago. Before COVID, when we were still allowed to travel. This beautiful pink hibiscus greeted us on the path that led to our condo. I couldn’t resist taking a photo. And I have been meaning to do a painting of it since.

“Tropical Daze” Framed and ready…

“Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze” is framed and ready to hang in someone’s home. I have included a couple of photos of my process for you. Palette knife painting is different from my usual brush work. I do enjoy playing with a palette knife. It’s very different and makes for a lot of texture. I also used cheesecloth and when I used a brush it was loosely, almost carefree. The scene reminds me of a tropical getaway. Something I didn’t get to enjoy this winter. Maybe next year? In the meantime dreaming and remaining hopeful will suffice. Cheers Susan

Frames for two…

“Spring’s Bounty”
“Tulip Glow”

“Spring’s Bounty” and “Tulip Glow” both got frames this weekend. I am fortunate to have a great friend who is happy to build frames for my art. I think she did a fantastic job. I think both paintings needed the rustic barn board look. Being a watercolor Spring’s Bounty is under anti glare glass. Don’t ask my husband how much that cost. Oops. Always get a price before ordering. Just saying. Both pieces are original and available for sale. You can see them and pricing in previous posts.

Artist Susan Feniak. If you want to contact me about my art please email sfeniakart@gmail.com I do not respond to scam or spam emails. I have gotten too many of those nasty emails. I am saddened by people who have nothing better to with their time than try to scam or cheat people out of their money and work.


“Tulip Glow”

Tulip Glow

I went with a totally different name than I originally thought. Just glad to finally have a title for my painting, “Tulip Glow”. Sometimes naming or giving a title to one’s art can be more difficult than it seems. Or even should be. I wanted to avoid the word “Spring” in the title simply because that seemed to limit the painting to one season. Why not enjoy a bright and cheerful painting all year long? Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″. Asking $250 plus shipping.

Reaching? Or Baker’s Dozen?

Reaching or Baker’s Dozen? I am not sure of the name yet. But if you need a touch of spring here it is. It’s been awhile since I did a painting of flowers. Now I remember why it’s been so long. They drive me crazy. But as always I did enjoy the creative process. It’s bright and cheerful. Something we can all use. Spring will come it always does. Cheers Susan

“Overseer” from beginning to framing…

“Overseer”

My painting “Overseer”, is framed and hanging in our living room, for now. The photos will give you some idea of my process, and the actual size of the finished painting. As a rule I take very few photos of my process. I have never done a video or made a podcast. This is as good as it gets. “Overseer” is acrylic on 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas, varnished. The frame is pre-made from Opus. It’s wood and black. My reference photo was kindly provided by nature photographer Mark Schroeder.

“Overseer”

“Overseer “

Overseer, my latest painting is finished. I would like to thank nature photographer Mark Schroeder for the reference photo. This Great Blue Heron is a frequent visitor to the Sicamous Channel Shuswap Lake BC. I try to paint it’s portrait at least once a year. With this portrait I may have finally paid this majestic bird some justice. I hope you like it.

Finished “At Last”

At Last

Finished my first painting of 2021. “At Last” is our houseboat sitting pretty at Robert’s Bay on beautiful Shuswap Lake. I took the reference photo late last summer. It was an idyllic calm morning. Barely a ripple on the lakes surface. Perfect for reflections. I had fun re-creating those reflections. These days our girl is waiting for the sunny warm days to return and so are we. I am keeping this painting. It will hang in our land home to remind us of those sun and fun filled days of the past and to look forward to in the future. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. FYI If you would like a painting of your boat, I do commissions.

First WIP of 2021

WIP

My first painting of 2021 is in progress on my easel. It’s coming together ever so slowly. The photo reference is my own taken late last summer of our houseboat at beautiful Robert’s Bay on Shuswap Lake. It was an idyllic morning with the lake perfectly calm and flat. Reflections galore! Golden Artist Acrylics on an 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. When this painting is finally done it’s not going anywhere. It will hang on our living room wall.
