Thrilled!

I am thrilled to say that three of my paintings were juried into The Federation of Canadian Artists Curated online Show July and August. This is a big step in the right direction for me. I entered my work some time ago and by the time I learned that all three had been accepted Waves Brilliant Dance had sold. Ergo I had to withdraw that painting. Overseer and Tulip Glow are still available for sale in show. To see the online show try http://www.artists.ca or http://www.federationgallery.com I have a link on my Facebook page as well.

The Red Barn Arts Center annual show

It’s almost time for the annual arts and crafts sale at The Red Barn Arts Center in Sicamous BC. I will have four paintings in the show this year along with several of my “one of a kind” hand painted greeting cards. If you are anywhere near Sicamous June 29th thru July 4th, please take the time to pop by and have a look. It’s well worth your time and effort. It is your chance to purchase from and support the many very talented artists and artisans of the Shuswap area. Cheers Susan Feniak

One framed and one named…

One framed: Once again I called upon my friend to make a frame. My painting “Quietude” needed one of her rustic board frames. I think she did a great job. Many thanks and some wine was involved. THIS PAINTING IS SOLD!

One named: I let my husband make the final decision and he chose “Center Stage” for my latest painting. There were only three votes made and I couldn’t make up my mind. This water lily was inspired by our pond that we used to have. And if I must give more credit I will have to say that an article in the magazine Watercolor Artist, summer 2021 also inspired me to revisit painting a water lily. It’s been awhile. Center Stage is my loosely based acrylic version of a watercolor painting in the article about the artist Brent Funderburk. His work is beautiful.

“Center Stage” or “Pond Gem” ?

“Center Stage” or “Pond Gem”? My latest painting is finished and drying on my easel. As yet I haven’t decided on a title. Although I know the focal point of a painting really shouldn’t be dead center, somehow this water lily seemed to deserve center stage. I haven’t painted a water lily in a very long time. I hope you like it. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 16″ x 16″ gallery canvas.

“Breakpoint”

“Breakpoint”. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas. There is something about a 12″ x 24″ canvas that screams paint a wave Susan. So I do. Waves fascinate me. I can sit and watch them for hours. Living on or near water for most of my life has allowed me that luxury. You can see more of my art @susanseasel #susanseasel

“Quietude”. The process, progress and changes….

SOLD Here is my latest painting, “Quietude”. Some photos of my process, progress and changes. I almost always forget to take photos of my process and progress. The Shuswap Lake, where I live, is a beautiful area. I continue to try to capture the beauty, ambiance and lighting of where I am fortunate to live. This is an early evening. A lavender sky is not unusual. Stormy weather and restless water are just as common as this idyllic scene. Some day I will try to capture those Shuswap swells and windy conditions. Fortunately those moments are short lived. Unfortunately harder to capture. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ canvas.

“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

Forging ahead… with “Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze”

Celebrating 10 years, here on WordPress.

“Tropical Daze” is the title I have given to my latest fun painting. After another set back I am forging ahead with my art. I won’t let rejection get me down, not this gal. This is a brand new painting on my easel, still drying. I certainly enjoyed using my palette knife while creating this piece. I used a palette almost exclusively. There is very little brush work. I did make use of some cheesecloth to add different texture, especially to the clouds. All in all great fun. It seems that these days if I am not thinking about spring I am thinking about some tropical paradise. Or so it would seem by my artistic endeavors. My new easel is no longer new looking. Tropical Daze is acrylic and gloss medium on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas, framed with a metal white frame. Asking $200

“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
