Daisy Fresh

“Daisy Fresh”. I was inspired by an article in June 2019 Watercolor Artist magazine “A Meditation in Light”. This is my acrylic spin on a watercolor of daisies in that article. Replication of a watercolor painting with acrylic is easier said then done. Or so it seemed to me. I am pleased with my result. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 16″ × 20″ box canvas. Painted on all sides. No frame needed. $175


Why me?

Why me? That’s what this dog is most likely thinking. Did you as a child ever play dress up with your pet? I remember putting clothes on our black lab, Pal and later a mutt we called Snoopy. Funny how at the time they seemed to play along. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper. This one is matted and will be available at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous when it opens.


Haven Point Cabin

You are the first to see this one. I finished it this afternoon. Knowing me it could end up with some revisions but for now I am pleased to say “Haven Point Cabin” is done. Those who know my art may remember that I have painted this cabin before. Twice as a matter of fact. But this is a different view and a few years on from my previous attempts. Both of my other versions have found homes so hopefully this one will too. This spot on the Shuswap inspires me. It is another of my happy places. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden acrylics on 16″ x 20″ box canvas painted on all sides. No frame needed. Based on a photo taken by me.


Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous

Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous will be reopening soon. Here is a sampling of my art that will be on display and for sale there. The gallery has relocated to the Red Barn on Riverside Ave. this year. Starting next Sunday I will be volunteering there. The artist on duty. Hopefully it will be a successful summer. I am looking forward to meeting the visitors.


Owl

Taking a cue from Charlie O’Shields of Doodlewash.com new nature sketching stuff activity book I did this owl. There are a lot of sketching and watercolor painting tips, ideas and activities in his book. It is good for any age young and even oldish like me. If you are an experienced artist or want to give art a chance for the first time, give this book a try. Charlie is right we were all born with the ability to draw, color and create art. Owl created by me, artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on Strathmore card stock.


Mara Morning (revised)

Mara Morning is now on display and for sale at Three Buoys Marina and Storage in Sicamous. This is the view from our houseboat. We think that we are very fortunate. That being said we have worked hard for a very long time to be this fortunate. I hope you enjoy our view as much as we do. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on Canvas framed 24″×30″. $250


Contemplation

Contemplation. If you don’t know me or my art you won’t know I rarely paint people. In fact I can’t remember the last time I tackled a selfie let lone another person. In my world that makes this painting special. The sunset adds to the contemplative moment I tried to capture here. Artist Susan Feniak. Koi watercolour on 8″×10″ Fabriano paper.
