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!

“Mara Twilight”

Mara Twilight

“Mara Twilight”. Believe it or not I have completed another painting. I am continually inspired by the views that I am fortunate enough to enjoy during the warmer months of the year. This painting is based on a photo that I took from the back of our houseboat late last summer. It had been a wet stormy day. The weather cleared as the sun set to reveal this glorious scene. I hope you like my second painting of Mara Lake completed so far this year. Okay second painting of Mara Lake in a week.

“Hyde to Mara”

Hyde to Mara

My latest painting “Hyde to Mara”, is DONE! This painting is based on a photo I took last summer. Lunch at the Hyde Mountain golf course includes this idyllic view of Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Playing golf is not for me but I will gladly enjoy lunch at the golf course just to partake of the views from many vantage points. I have been wanting to capture this particular view on canvas for some time. I hope I have done it some justice.

New art in progress…

“Hyde to Mara”. Time for a change from flowers and paint a local scene. Based on a photo I took last summer after the wild fire smoke cleared. The view from Hyde Mountain golf course looking out over Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Remember that this is a work in progress. This is an inspiring view for anyone to enjoy.

My oh my! Finished

My oh my!

“My oh my!” My Iris painting is finished. It was a challenge with a few revisions and many hours spent at my easel. The reward? Well the painting itself of course and before I could finish it, it sold! Its always so reassuring to have someone love your creation enough to hang it in their personal space. See me smile? Thank you to the purchaser. I know “My oh my!” is going to a very good home.

Happy 2022!!

As we start a new year I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that supported me in my artistic endeavors during 2021. A special thank you to my peers. Becoming an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists was the highlight of my year.

I am looking forward to 2022, optimistically and positively. Since I am now officially retired I will now have more time for art, blogging and social media. Look out!

Happy New Year! My very best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and creative 2022. Cheers Susan Feniak


Anfractuous

“Anfractuous”

“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.

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.

Cheers Susan Feniak

“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.
