Mara Muse

Mara Muse. A painting of the view from our houseboat. We spend hours sitting and staring at this spectacle of nature’s beauty. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Colors on 8″ x 10″ canvas.


Raven Trail Autumn

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


“Mara View”

Mara View. Every year we climb the hill at Bay View Estates just outside Sicamous BC and admire the view of Mara Lake from on high. I have wanted to paint that view for years. Hope you enjoy. I certainly got into the zone for this one. Cheers Susan.


Out Picking Wild Flowers

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!


The last of winter

We thought it was the last of winter until it snowed this morning. Thankfully it didn’t stick. Happy Easter! Artist Susan Feniak. Windsor Newton Cotman Water Colours on Strathmore paper.


“The Stand”

original art by Susan Feniak  acrylic on 24” x 24” canvas

Just a little something I have been working on.  I have been  discovering some great places to walk around our new home in Salmon Arm.  It amazes me just how many trails there are.  While out and about on these nature trails I am getting inspired.  This painting is based on yet another photo that  I took  this past summer.  Pretty sure there will be more to inspire  me as I investigate our new surroundings.

Cheers, Susan Feniak

A Nice Day For A Walk

Previously titled, “Done?”  The consensus is that the painting is indeed done.  I did add some Canada Geese flying in formation but I have not taken another photo of the painting.  It was a nice day for a walk along the nature trail in Salmon Arm Bay. The biggest water colour I have tackled to date.  At the moment I am not sure if this one is finished or not.  I don’t want to over work it.  Usually I am happy or pleased with the end product.  Perhaps its because this is a water colour that has me doubting.  It has been fun playing and spending time at my easel.

Original art by Susan Feniak  Staedtler water colour pencils and Holbein water colours on 18” x 24” Strathmore water colour paper.
