Continuing Water Theme

A new watercolor completed. My watery theme continues with another lighthouse. This one still needs a name. Want to give it a go? Tell me what you think.

A remake of an old favourite.

Lifting Fog 2

Recently the original painting Lifting Fog SOLD. A good thing. Unfortunately while preparing the painting for shipping it got damaged. What to do? Paint another one of course. No choice really but give it a try. You may not realize this but no two paintings turn out the same. Artists are constantly evolving. Learning new techniques, changing styles. The original painting was done two years ago.

Lifting Fog 1

But I wanted to try. I had a paying client to satisfy. I believe that I managed to get it close but not exact. My purchaser has decided to buy the new version. I am thankful for her understanding. I hope she likes it as much as the original.

“Waves Brilliant Dance”

Waves Brilliant Dance

Waves Brilliant Dance. My latest painting is still drying on my easel. These days the ocean and waves seem to be my muse. That comes as no surprise to me. To achieve the texture I used several different palette knives and a credit card. The entire painting was done without a brush. Admittedly this technique is hard on my acrylic paint supply. Even using Goldens soft gel gloss to extend my paint it sucked up lots. Did I have fun? No need to ask. Did I make a big mess with paint smeared everywhere, even on my phone? You bet. A joyful mess. I am pleased with the end result.

Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Asking $250. Not framed. Colours used Titanium white, Cerulean Blue Chromium, Azurite Hue, Colbalt Teal, Green Gold, Yellow Ochre and Hansa Yellow Medium.

“Higuera Blanca Breakers”

Higuera Blanca Breakers

“Higuera Blanca Breakers”. While visiting Mexico this past winter I was inspired many times. Perhaps the beach we visited with friends while at Higuera Blanca inspired me the most. It had been a wild windy morning and the Pacific Ocean had whipped itself into an amazing show of powerful frothy surf. Standing on the beach left one feeling dwarfed by the size of the breakers. It was exhilarating. Froth, salt spray, wind and all.

Since our stay in Mexico I am struck by how life has changed. Not just for me personally but for everyone. This is a worldwide crises that includes us all. New expressions like self isolating and social distancing have become our new normal. Being house bound isn’t a difficult thing for an artist. It provides extra hours for one to be creative. There is no fear of boredom. There is no opportunity for that thought to enter our busy minds. For those that are struggling with being “stuck” at home may I suggest that you get yourself some crayons and paper and draw. Be creative. Creativity is the perfect escape from these challenging times. You never know you could very well surprise yourself and us.

Higuera Blanca Breakers is acrylic on 18″ x 24″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. Painted on all sides no frame needed. Artist Susan Feniak. $300

“High And Dry”

It’s official my first painting of 2020 has a name. High And Dry. Between my Instagram, Facebook and WP site there was a tied vote. I ended up asking my husband which name he preferred Skiff’s at Low Tide or High and Dry. Thank you to all that took the time to cast their vote.
