Overseer, my latest painting is finished. I would like to thank nature photographer Mark Schroeder for the reference photo. This Great Blue Heron is a frequent visitor to the Sicamous Channel Shuswap Lake BC. I try to paint it’s portrait at least once a year. With this portrait I may have finally paid this majestic bird some justice. I hope you like it.

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.

My painting “Give Up?” Has gone to a new home. The owners are birdie lovers. Yesterday I was volunteering at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. Being a soggy wintery day not too many people were out and about. I had time to paint a panda family in celebration of our impending family day holiday weekend. Time dragged on to a quick painting of a a hippo. She was gazing at me from the Telus wall calendar. The star of January 2018.
With all that I will say I am gone on hiatus for a wee while. Enjoy the rest of your winter. Spring will come, it always does. Cheers Susan
If you were wondering what’s next, no worries. I knew all along. It had to be Flamingos. The perfect follow up to Christmas elephants and giraffes. It is snowing where I live today so I had to think of warmer places. These two helped. Artist Susan Feniak. Original art using Koi watercolour on Strathmore card stock.
